    Pros

    Great group of diverse experiences to learn from. There's so much opportunity to learn new things. You wear many different hats in your role.

    Cons

    Not enough people to do all the work. New management in place where the culture may change. Perks used to be good.

    I worked at RB full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers and overall good working environment. Decent compensation and opportunity to travel globally.

    Cons

    An ever increasing list of priorities are added constantly which you are expected to complete with lightening speed whilst attending their never-ending meetings that can go for over 2 hours. Depending on your group you are expected to do everything! Literally. You are running around all day being bombarded by many requests needed ASAP while other group members have a lot of extra time to sit around and chat randomly about non-work related issues. Your promotion will not be based on your work but how close you are with managers and your social interactions overall. Mostly political BS. I've wondered what some people actually do here!
    Again this depends on your group, other groups may be different.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aware of your team's workload and give adequate time to complete it. Less meetings about meetings about meetings!!! Promote based on work ethic, results produced and not like-ability. Good managers never show favoritism and even if you have favorites don't make it that obvious!

    I have been working at RB full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits: 4 week vacation, 401K matching, insurance...
    Most of the people (at least within my department) are very nice and respectful. True team environment.

    Cons

    In my department, there isn't opportunity for advancement. I don't have the "skill set" to move across the business, so I can't advance until someone dies or quits.

    Advice to Management

    Tell us WHY you're asking certain things from us. People find value in the action of they know the purpose. Otherwise, when asked to do something outside of the norm, people become frustrated rather than supportive.

    I worked at RB (More than a year)

    Pros

    Learn a lot, good classical brand training experience, chance to move across different brands, global, opportunity to work in international locations

    Cons

    Crazy work culture, low work life balance, move too quickly between brands before you get a chance to get comfortable with one brand.

    Advice to Management

    Let people stay on brand longer to make maximum impact, improving work life balance should start from top down
