    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent place to work, excellent HR policies and great work environment with plenty of scope for growth and learning, flexible working

    Cons

    Some really old fashioned bankers and their really old beliefs. The company really doesnt support such people and these people are just old horses waiting to be moved out of the company at retirement

    Advice to Management

    Re-train the old horses and give some important jobs to younger people with more drive

    Pros

    Reasonable pay. Reasonable location. That’s about it though.

    Rbs was a good employer for a big bank until the last year or so. They are now hemorrhaging employees. You couldn’t pay me enough to go back. Run.
