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 Management

Trust your employees.

    Advice to Management

    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.

    Pros

    I think overall its a great company to work for. They have a lot of assistance and support for their employees. Upper management is extremely outgoing and helpful. They definitely want you to succeed. They provide an abundance of training to ensure your success. They are willing to develop the hard workers and reward those that want to put forth effort. They have great benefits and incentives.

    Cons

    Small office mentality. Its hard to move up in the company unless you would like to relocate or completely change your career goals.

    Advice to Management

    The old dogs need to learn the new trick that RBC wants to teach or their business will fold for the same reason that caused them to merge. My direct management has very hands off ideals and shows a lot of favoritism for the good old boys. There needs to be some new blood in the offices.
