Pros

RBS has a lot of strengths despite its terrible reputation. Some of the business units (notably Spot FX) are market leaders. Many of the strongest individuals have stuck it out since the financial crisis.

Cons

There is much government scrutiny over practices within the bank, probably more so than at other institutions. Bonuses are weak.

    Pros

    Diversified financial institution and desk rotation policy at junior level

    Cons

    Not aggressive enough
    Bad public opinion / always on the spotlight due to 82% stake owned by UK Treasury
    Uncertain development strategy, pulled out of a large number of opportunistic geographies and products (e.g. M&A in Europe)
