I worked at Coutts & Co full-time (More than a year)
Some amazing people with diverse experience, large company but not too much so that autonomy and the ability to lead projects close to one's hearts is possible and sometimes encouraged, prestige of the brand, very proactive on Mental Health Issues
Too many ExCo members and other execs lack experience outside of RBS Group companies and think they know it all, Not a good environment for young talented professionals to progress (but great to find a job at another firm with the brand),
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Coutts & Co (London, England (UK)) in August 2017.
One call, then an interview followed by another call. They didn't tell me anything about the project and role requirements, other than it was in a readiness team. I tried to find out about more in the conversation, but they constantly diverted back to me and asked (quite reasonable) questions about my CV. On the phone I got the feedback that based on my CV and what I said, my experience was highly relevant, but in the room it was very tough to find out what they were looking for.
I don't think I was the right candidate anyway, but I was taken aback by the lack of engagement and actual dialogue. They clearly were interested otherwise they wouldn't have asked for another call and I was one of two remaining candidates. When I got the call that they went for the other candidate I also didn't get feedback as the HR person had not been in the loop at all over the process. Strange experience.
