      The mission is laudable and many employees are passionate about achieving success.


      Sadly, working here was the worst experience of my career. The London office was disjointed, with teams at war with each other. Most staff were struggling with excessively heavy workloads and a culture of working very late and at weekends prevailed. HR processes and systems are very weak. High turnover of staff. A member who had been accused of bullying by several people remained in position with seemingly no repercussions. My advice is to avoid at all costs.

        - Supervisors look out for their interns, always using every opportunity to teach - Staff is generally upbeat and friendly and encourages working with other interns - IRC often hires from within


        - Nature of the job can be very tough considering the clientele

      Software Developer

      I have an interview for Sr data engineer in RBC. Does anyone have any idea what can be asked? Any experience anyone can share?


      University of South Florida

      Anyone know how indepth Crowe background check is? What do they verify? Do they use a third party service? What exactly are they looking for?



      I've completed an initial phone screening interview, followed by a 2-hour interview with the Department VP. Next in the process are three separate 90-minute peer interviews. Is there a possibility of another interview after the peer interviews, or should I anticipate receiving an offer?
