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

    Pros

    Many people are nice. That's it. Nothing else in particular. Salaries are not too bad (but not so fancy either).

    Cons

    Intimidating managers. Hostile workplace communication in my team.
    If your manager is good, you may be able to enjoy more.

    Systems, both structures and IT, are old and the company does not invest into it. Old systems make everything inefficient and cumbersome. Ppl and managers there misunderstand the meaning of "speediness". The way they work is very unproductive. Smart ppl have to work busily to supplement old and slow systems and old-minded managers' work. It's nothing like a "speedy" business. Just a meaningless heavily operational work.
    If you like a productive workplace, RB isn't a right place for you.

    If you are old school and blessed with a nice manager, maybe okay.

    Advice to Management

    Minimal investment in everything is required to grow. Good ppl won't stay.
