    I worked at RBC Insurance full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They had great managers. They had achievable requirement for conference trips. They gave you a book of business to work from which was extremely nice. That was my first introduction into insurance services and I didn't realize how good I had it from that standpoint.

    Cons

    Their products available to sell were limited. Part of this was due to them being on the market to be sold. RBC had banks in the Southeast and had purchased Liberty Life Insurance Company as their insurance arm in 2000 and then in 2010 RBC sold Liberty Life and has completely pulled out of the United States.

    I worked at RBC Insurance

    Pros

    RBC is a strong company financially. Generally, the people in the Greenville office are terrific to work with. The home office is in a beautiful facility, and benefits are good.

    Cons

    The parent company is not committed to growth of the insurance company in the United States. The U.S. home office has been troubled by weak leadership at the top and within the distribution channels..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The U.S. operation has some terrific talent, but you need to get the right leaders on the bus, and get the wrong leaders off!

    I worked at RBC Insurance full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a large company with good benefits and salary. Bonus was good and it was given every year. Didn't have a lot of overtime and hours were flexible.

    Cons

    There were a few difficult people in charge of areas that made it difficult for others working there. A lot of office politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to get rid of the managers that are ruining the work environment for most of the rest of staff. Waiting for them to retire isn't soon enough. Certain people can fake having people skills when required but really don't care about the rest of the staff.

    I have been working at RBC Insurance full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good peers, training is provided

    Cons

    Poor management, limited room for growth, managers have favourites, directors don't care to provide fair direction for mangers.
    Pay is average but expectations are extremely high standard for your job. People leave and are not replaced, other staff is expected to pick up the slack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider keeping your employees by being fair. Cost of living has gone up, RBC has had profit earnings but this is not passed on to staff, instead they only provide increases to limited few (ones that are in flight).

    Former Employee - Telemarketer in Victoria, BC (Canada)

    I worked at RBC Insurance as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked under contract, could set own hours, boss agreeable sort.

    Cons

    Expected more than I was really qualified/trained for; immediate supervisor's dislike turned into verbal bullying (telling me I'd fail before I even had a chance to start my day), although when she was in a better mood she would (very rarely, to be fair) touch me in a non-sexual way without my consent. There was also little respect within our "boiler room" in one significant but not (from lher point of view) abusive way: she and another employee would chat to each other through me without respect for the distraction and annoyance it caused me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're going to allow your branches to hire telemarketers, seek out a separate company to do it for them, and provide the leads (some of us aren't able, mostly because we have too much to do in our offtime already, to hunt for "fresh game" as it were) to potential clients and repeat business.

    Pros

    the people you work with are great! The training is 2nd to none. a great place to start a rewarding career.

    Cons

    seem to be merging positions and setting higher targets to achieve but not increasing salaries. plans to reduce benefits and more difficult to get bonuses yet the company continues to show record profits yr over yr.
