    Negative Outlook

    I worked at RB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great portfolio to learn various regulations and strategies, compliance and route to market experience. Supportive R&D function collaborating well with regulatory and supply. Aggressive marketing strategy and market penetration sees RB often being an acquisition company and growing.

    Cons

    Poor salary, over exhausting work load and more responsibility than initially defined within job description. multiple process tangents diverting focus onto following process rather than regulation. Speed over perfection mentality leading progressively towards non compliance and conformance issues. Innovative focus often leaving other segments of the same function gap filling and crossing t's dotting i's due to poor initial execution.

    Political hierarchy where your face has to fit not your level of skill. It is not how much you know but rather how long you have inflated ego's and been a door mat for RB.

    Non meretricious company that turns a blind eye to rising talent due to corporate and personal political agendas.

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge outstanding talent within the company - offer promotions to the deserving based on knowledge and technical performance not based on word wizardry and "people management". Pay better to ground teams to justify the exhaustive amount of responsibility blindly added to their job description. Continue exposing new employees to different aspects of the same business segment and do not save this particularly for a better paid graduate.
