    I worked at RSA Group for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work life balance is the only one I can think of. no one cares if you work from home because surprise! no one is actually in the office to even care you're at home.

    Cons

    Just about everything. Antiquated systems, too many things being done manually, management is a joke that's incapable of making a decision...the list goes on. They have spent a fortune using one consulting firm after another because management lacks vision and has no clear strategy. They have turned into a bunch of puppets and when the consultants pull their strings they do whatever their told to do. It is unbelievable that this company has managed to be in business as long as they have. The morale is so low that they actually still talk about collaboration within the departments. This is how out of touch the management is with the staff. They let go hundreds of people over the course of a few years and talk collaborating. With who exactly? There's only skeleton staff left. Management even insists on doing menial administrative tasks and then complain how busy they are. It is just laughable!!

    I have been working at RSA Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The leadership team is forward thinking and has good intentions with its HR policies. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    The quality of middle and lower management is hit or miss. Good intentions from leadership do not always trickle down to employees due to poor management in the middle. There has been cut-backs to the benefit plan recently. Many employees have been with the company for 20+ years so it is hard to bring in changes or to modernize workflow.

    Advice to Management

    More training and support for managers.
