I have been working at Royal Bank of Canada full-time (more than an year)

Pros

- There are hundreds of directions you can take your career
- Management is very attentive to employee needs and encourages open door
- Full training is provided to ensure you know your products

Cons

- There is huge turn around but this is primarily due to the fact that you're calling folks at home after work and they tend not to be very open to conversation at that time
- Because of huge turn around, management expects you to really show your commitment and does not allow vertical movement unless you stay in your current position for a long time, sometimes 2 years.
- Pay is pretty low during the first 5-6 years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Loosen some of the more strict rules about moving up in your field.

    Pros

    Ability to expand your knowledge of the business world, great place to start a career. Learn about bank safety, financial products etc.

    Cons

    Management was older, I felt a large age discrepancy and couldn't really bond with the my colleagues.. I went to work to work, wasn't fun and outgoing environment.

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

    Pros

    *Good colleagues (the ones who actually work, and are not busy kissing their bosses' behind).

    Cons

    *Very poor salary (considering billions in profits)
    *Team Leaders are horribly under-qualified, only way to move up is if you do a lot of sucking up. Qualifications don't matter.
    *In SSG (Royal Direct), Team Leaders follow you to the bathroom, follow you on your breaks, ask overly personal questions, and are all on major power trips.
    *They have a special Team that is managed by a Team Leader who is responsible for firing as people as possible from that team. He or She is rewarded for terminating these positions.
    *Advisory Group is especially useless, don't waste your time.
    *Benefits suck - $50 per pay cheque is not a good deal. Just making insurance companies richer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your hardest working staff like actual human beings.
