    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Natwest full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Salary is ok Culture is good Staff at manager level and above are treated like adults Large organisation with many areas to explore working opportunities

    Cons

    Constant uncertainty Constant restructures and downsizing, more pressure on remaining staff as the work isn't going anywhere but less people to complete Very poor deselect/reselect process for jobs when under going restructure. One manager will interview you for multiple roles (could be as many as 10-12 roles) so their interpretation of you carries over all of these applications, where one manager may pass you, another may fail you and if you fail for one role you have failed them all, very poor system and unfair.
