    Perform routine preventive maintenance to ensure that the line operates efficiently.

    I worked at RB full-time

    Pros

    Extremely competitive pay and benefits

    Cons

    Archaic systems, Supply personnel get treated like second class citizens compared to Marketing and Sales

    Advice to Management

    Fork up the money to update your extremely outdated systems - they are so old that they are no longer even supported and probably should have been updated three times over by now

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Decent pay -Room for career growth -Dynamic work environment with lots of exposure to different parts of the business.

    Cons

    -Incompetent and ineffective middle management -Procrastination is rampant -Nobody takes intiatives to solve problems; passing the buck is a very common practice here. -The motto is "speed over perfection" - something that is evident in all aspects of the company as its is FAR from perfect; the result is a highly disorganized and inefficient enterprise. -Hostile work environment due to burnt out managers constantly throwing hissy fits over simple issues.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize and reward employees for their work, remove toxic lazy managers from the workplace, invest in the future of the company, focus on being the best, not the fastest.

    Pros

    Great salary, benefits and bonus plans. International mobility is highly prized by management.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work-life balance, work is your life when you are an employee at RB. Senior management is a good ol boys club. Same management members switching roles globally.

    I have been working at RB full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great opportunity for exposure to many different aspects of product development process. Recently very good pay in comparison with industry competitors. Some very wonderful people to work with in the lower ranks of the organization.

    Cons

    Very disjointed and reactive in terms of innovation, business execution and product delivery strategies. Real lack of respect and value for individual employees, many surveys to access culture with no serious actions to improve work culture. Lots of turn over due to poor management and very unhealthy work-life balance. Reorganization for the sake of profit has left many disillusioned and mistrustful of upper management.

    Advice to Management

    True leadership is doing what is right when no one is watching... A culture absorbed with profit at any cost is destined to implode.

    I have been working at RB full-time

    Pros

    People rotate fast, so there's always an opportunity to climb, or get experience laterally too. Company has started to make an effort to learn what it is doing wrong, and how to better keep its employees happy. Great place to learn a lot in a short space of time.

    Cons

    Supply always get a bad reputation; people are very quick to blame supply without knowing all the facts. Operations and Logistics folks are treated like second-class citizens. Extremely fast paced work culture, which RB seems to call its strength, but oftentimes, mistakes are made and need to be fixed second time round, thereby generating more work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training managers and middle managers to be better mentors, and not just bosses with metrics to keep. Look out for the overall personal development of people, so they actually want to stay with the company, and not look for an escape route their first week in...

    Pros

    You are given ownership of your work and have opportunity to make a name for yourself.

    Cons

    Too thin on employees, too much work is delicated per person. Terrible systems to use.
