    I have been working at Royal Bank of Scotland full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The only valid reason is Salary increment (for those who are less paid initially in their jobs), and a good brand name (at least the market have that impression)

    Cons

    No work life balance; limited growth opportunity, too many levels of hierarchy. The bonus and hikes are minimal and on the lower side of the industry average

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please be more transparent
