    I have been working at Royal Bank of Canada part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people working at RBC are older professionals so you can learn from their experience.

    Cons

    Very conservative and unfair in promotions. Doesn't matter about your performance.. it's about if your manager likes you or not. I would not recommend this place to young professionals.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better career opportunities to the university recent graduates.

    I have been working at Royal Bank of Canada full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, RBC on your resume

    Cons

    Everything else. If you want to work like a dog for a company that in the end couldn't care less about you....this is the right place.

    Advice to Management

    There's more to life than doing what ever it takes to get your bonus.
