Spotlight on Our Credo
"To me, this is the first company where employees have a very special place. This company makes me feel that I am special and appreciated and for that reason I work with more energy and dedication, and best of all, wherever I go and I can tell the company that I work for -- I say it very proudly, 'I work for CITIZENS BANK!' ".
"Having worked for other financial institutions, I have found that Citizens is very unique. Citizens embraces cultural diversity in a very grass-roots manner. Senior management, especially the CEO and her team, are out in various communities on a frequent basis.”
