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

    Pros

    - friendly environment for the most, there are real great people in there which is a must since you are going to basically be leaving with them!
    - fair compensation;
    - truthful employee support and inclusion;
    - great activities and culture.

    Cons

    - a bit too lay back in certain projects creating pressure in the end;
    - might be a bit understaffed in certain sectors causing employees to have to do absurd long hours without notice - but everything is delivered due to great management.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t think I could suggest a better approach than what it was in place when I left the bank.
