I have been working at Coutts & Co full-time (More than a year)
Great experiences for the early stage of my career with a series of exceptional managers and mentors.
Opportunities to move within and between teams to learn more and get involved in interesting projects.
Support for flexible working (e.g. working from home) in some roles.
Frequent cost and headcount cutting impacts staff morale.
Requirement to use parent bank systems and processes, which sometimes feel inefficient and over complicated.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coutts & Co (London, England) in August 2017.
One call, then an interview followed by another call. They didn't tell me anything about the project and role requirements, other than it was in a readiness team. I tried to find out about more in the conversation, but they constantly diverted back to me and asked (quite reasonable) questions about my CV. On the phone I got the feedback that based on my CV and what I said, my experience was highly relevant, but in the room it was very tough to find out what they were looking for.
I don't think I was the right candidate anyway, but I was taken aback by the lack of engagement and actual dialogue. They clearly were interested otherwise they wouldn't have asked for another call and I was one of two remaining candidates. When I got the call that they went for the other candidate I also didn't get feedback as the HR person had not been in the loop at all over the process. Strange experience.
