    I have been working at Natwest full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Genuinely not sure of any pros of working there.

    Cons

    Targets still exist, pushed continuously to sell more, however we don’t use the word sell we use the phrase ‘meet customer needs’, irony of that is we are meant to tell the customer what they need. No career progression, no overtime paid, no bonuses unless you are out of the branch level.
