    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

    I worked at RB (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Quick promotion for hard work. Competitive salary and benefits.

    Cons

    No work life balance. Management actually prides itself on not caring about accuracy. Unrealistic deadlines. Are told it is a culture of challenging each other but when you do that you are reprimanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what you want. You constantly contradict yourselves. How can anyone take that seriously?

    I worked at RB as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    -perks, unexpected rewards for completing projects
    -wages
    -A lot of awesome, hardworking people that make the place fun to work at

    Cons

    -the drama
    -unorganized
    -unprofessional people in management
    -construction zone 24/7

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat the employees better, don't flaunt full time status if you plan to fire people before they get there. Fire the unprofessional people that create all the drama. There's a lot of lazy people that put a lot of pressure on those who are hard working. Unreasonable deadlines because of the lack of communication between departments.

    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.

    Pros

    From day one you are put on deep waters, thus you learn a lot in a short time.
    No processes - no bureaucracy

    Cons

    Compensation 20-30% below markets average.
    No loyalty to employees.
    You are expected to work overtime for which you will not be paid - pros for some as you could theoretically put it in the charity section of your CV.
    No trainings in place - company cuts where possible when it comes to fixed costs.
    Limited headcount - massive workforce stretch- means you do a job of three different people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some loyalty towards hard-working employees.

    I have been working at RB as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Depending on the department good work/life balance

    Cons

    No transparency between upper management and employees; lack of employee development opportunities (at least for contractors); no training for new employees and disorganized onboarding process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to develop and think about creating a strong team environment rather then just individual ambition

    Good pay
    You can go as far as you want - ambition is expected
    Good severance packages

    Cons

    They are looking to consolidate facilities, so will shut down the facilities if they can move the production elsewhere (especially UK).

    I worked at RB full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The compensation was great. Paid quite well, at least compared to the companies I knew about. The people working here are good workers and very intelligent.

    Cons

    The work can be very stressful at times. It will also prove to be difficult to handle work-life balance. If you want a social life, best to apply elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
