    I worked at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    employee friendly company. Exemplary work life balance. competitive Pay scale

    Cons

    Highly bureaucratic environment. Frequently changing priorities and strategy. Unrealistic / blind believe on 3rd party assessment (e.g. LLP training / assessment- went to an extent that employee not able to complete assessment were changed their roles - Not a good approach and I seen employees loosing their confidence due to this unrealistic approach).
