Communication skills have become my most used and required skills for my level. The relationships I build along the way have been the best sources of information. Knowledge sharing is another skill that not only helps the seeker but the educator as well.

Don"t bother with joining RBS
Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Stamford, CTJuly 7, 2016
Prior to being downsized, RBS was in their 8th year of their 5 year plan to turn business around. Management was a loss as they never listen to staff. Worked for 20+ years and only felt relieved when I received (in error) email advising of CT Unemployment Options now that I was let go. Management advised me that email wasn't intended for me.....but that evening my entire profile was changed. When I questioned HR I was told that I was on their list for the following week to be advised, Management has no respect for staff members.
Pros
Co-workers were nice.
Cons

Private Banking Manager (Former Employee) –  LondonMay 28, 2016
Fairly a decent place to work. The company has made great strides to change its culture and public perception following the banking crisis. Transparency both internally and externally is still in progress but nonetheless measure are in place to implement this. One key issue would lay in the manner information is delivered to employees or rather the lack of.
