    I worked at RB

    Pros

    Very good products although many are derivatives of the base brand. Average pay and good benefits. Some terrific people to work with depending on the area you work in.

    Cons

    Like most companies the work-life balance will get out of whack if you let it. Some parts of management are very good, some poor. Marketing runs the show.

    I worked at RB full-time

    Pros

    There are a great many opportunities for career growth. RB has global presence and are transferring employees internationally all the time (pro if you like traveling). Also, there is a great deal of focus on personal development of employees by providing training courses and what not.

    Cons

    Compared to competitors, RB probably ranks a little low in terms of compensation. Also, for promotion and career growth, there is a good chance that at some point you will be transferred internationally to another country.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RB full-time

    Pros

    Fast-Paced, opportunity for growth and movement. Hard work can pay off under some managers

    Cons

    NO work-life balance. Unrealistic expectations and deadlines - One person expected to do the work of 3. Compete lack of communication and poor management. Low compensation compared to competitors and how much you are expected to work. If you leave when you are done with your work but upper management is still there you are expected to stay and twiddle your thumbs until they leave. HR is awful and extremely unprofessional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like they matter
    Communicate
    Long term rather than short term
