    I have been working at RB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    All of sr leadership is from other countries so they really have no grasp on the business. So if you can do internal presentations, it is easy to look good in sales by just playing the game.

    Turnover is high, so people advance quickly. You will find lots of people way over their head in key roles

    Cons

    I came to RB for their entrepreneurial culture. What I found was the complete opposite. In sales you are “given P&L responsibility “, but every promotion is dictated from trade and sr management. In sales you will solely be an executor, and spend all of your time on internal presentations.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to your people instead of just waiting to talk. Front line experience will pay off

    Pros

    Large international company with operations in many countries throughout the world. Many opportunities to advance career. Good benefits, especially 401k, profit sharing, and 4 weeks of vacation.

    As a very large company making significant changes is very difficult, and that can lead to being out innovated by smaller more agile companies.
