    I have been working at RBC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    RBC in general is a solid company with good benefits, especially 401K for the employees (in America) is well worth mentioning.

    Cons

    Having worked at Citi & JPM, RBC in America is comparably a small pond with little fishes swimming around like they've lost their ways. Having the background in Risk Management, I can honestly say, Compliance is almost nonexistent, processes are segmented, systems are older than 20 years to work effectively in the industry, and people are unprofessional including senior management. I'm surprised the Regulators are not shutting down more of their business.

    Advice to Management

    To Mr. McKay, please open your ears and eyes to what is happening with RBC in NY, MN and NC! Senior and Middle Management are ruining your company's reputation for the sake of empty promises of increasing the loan books by totally disregarding any due diligence required by the Regulators! CEO gets the thumbs down only because he seems to be unaware of the layoffs and misdeeds of the Sr Mgmt in NY & MN.

    I worked at RBC full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, that's all.

    Cons

    As I writer this review, the Raleigh, NC location only has 1.3 stars. That in itself should tell you something. I was only at RBC for a short time, however, it is NOT a place I would want to go back to. Pay was decent, but the managers in my department were awful. No room for advancement, and they keep people around who constantly steal time from the company (one person was 16-20 minutes late daily, while the other was 11 minutes late daily). Under qualified people are chosen for positions based on who they know, not what they know (knowledge, experience, etc.). None of the upper level leaders seemed happy outside the stupid monthly “Town Halls”. Fake morale to say the least. People disappear all of sudden (resigning, medical leave, etc.). This is a classic example of, “It looks good on the outside, but once you get in, beware”. My advice stay away from this place unless you are unemployed and are desperate for a job. Last, I am glad I got out.

    Advice to Management

    Shut the place down, and restart with new people. Including yourselves.
