    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

    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.

    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?
