A fine place to work if you don't like to think too much

I worked at Royal Bank of Canada

Pros

RBC is a very large and stable company that offers good compensation (but lower than most banks). The work environment is good, and there's lots of opportunity to try several different career paths. You work at one Canada's premier companies with major brand recognition, and for the most part the people are great.

Cons

You need to find the right manager. RBC can be a great place to work, but with the wrong manager it can be very difficult and stressful! They also have very rigid systems and policies in place which is good as it can make the job very easy once you've mastered the system, just don't expect to be able to use personal judgment or think outside the box.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your employees.

    Big and slow, but generally a stress free environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I found there were many people at RBC who did not work very hard. This is one of the reasons I left the organization. I'd recommend trimming some of the deadwood.

    I think senior management is amazing. They truly lead by example at this organization. I don't have anything negative to say about leadership.
