    Proactively invest in the employees loyal to RBC and you will be rewarded many times over. It shouldn't take a threat to leave to earn a raise. Cost of living raises should be given yearly.

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

    Pros

    Great Benefits, and easy to get to offices and locations

    Cons

    Incoherent policies that seem to change every 6 months. Employees are out for themselves and managers are absent or non-existent. Your career path is based on who you know and not on your talent. The inclusiveness and progressiveness of the Canadian head office does not seem to apply to the US entities. Witnessed many episodes of discriminatory behavior against minorities and homophobia which were never addressed by the managers. Bullying is rampant and the managers are not never around and don't seem to care.
    Career path is very limited and although the benefits are good, they don't pay very well. Most people seem to leave in 1-2 years.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits and nothing more

    Cons

    Management sucks, they make unplanned and unrealistic decisions. Constantly restructuring and changing staffs job description with disregard to what your career goals are. Also they had 2 major lay offs in less than 3 years. Which always lead to Caicos because they have no plan to what to do without those employees and just burden existing ones with added work load

    Advice to Management

    Make organized long term plans
