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

    Pros

    good work life balance
    ethical company that treats its customers and employees well on balance
    benefits and vacation time are both good, bordering on generous
    the company is huge, your experience will depend largely on where you land.

    Cons

    Communication and collaboration are ongoing challenges.
    Advancement and development opportunities are rare. The company has no interest in anyone thinking or learning beyond their immediate position.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment where employees can speak honestly about what they think and provide some latitude for them to make improvements. There is a lot of lip service to this idea currently but it needs to go further.
