    Pros

    Pay is not that bad

    Cons

    Senior management plays a lot of favoritism plus the leadership development is still backwards compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Attract outside talent for senior leaders and take the EOS results serious to fix what is broken. Operations at RBC is one of the worst areas to work. However, other departments outside of operations are very innovative, employees feel valued and have great collaborative approaches. Huge revolving door in operations, what a shame and waste of talent!!

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Very focused on the client. Sales targets are reasonable. The biggest focuses this year are collaboration and enabling our clients to use digital banking.

    Cons

    The only problem with retail banking is the salary. The bonus is nice at the end of the year but honestly it's still not a high enough paying job for the stress, amount of work, and outside training required to get into the role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but maybe review the pay scales. There has been no change in 2017 despite the cost of living (housing) flying through the roof.

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

    Pros

    Conservative institution. Friendly work environment. Great work life balance.

    Cons

    Non-client facing departments are just treated like cost centers.

  8. "Managing Director"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at RBC full-time

    Pros

    This is a very well run company. I was pleased to work there. I can not say much more because this world is too litigation happy.

    Cons

    Because the financial services industry is in general litigation happy, and I do not want to be on the wrong end, I will opt out of listing any cons.

    Advice to Management

    I advise management to continue doing what you are doing, you have a well respected institution in your grasp. Congratulations.

    I worked at RBC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    6% 401K match is great. In my search for a new job, I didn't find any that were at 6%.

    Cons

    I do think RBC is a great company, and maybe this is a great job at another location. Just like when you can go to a restaurant chain and you're expecting the same, but go to another location and it's horrible. That's what it's like here. I talk to other employees at other locations and their experiences are different than mine. The two things that stand out to me that are bad is compensation and technology. I feel tricked and brainwashed staying here for as long as I did. I was told, you'll never be able to go somewhere else and make what you do here, you're almost capped out. BOOM..find another job making $17,000 base salary more. 2nd thing, Technology - I don't even know how to describe it. RBC's fix seems to workarounds, in other words, learn how to do it wrong. There are things that go by for years that aren't addressed or fixed. Technology sets us far back from our competitors.

    Advice to Management

    You have to pay people to work. You have to pay your long term employees to retain them. Its 2017 and far to easy to go somewhere else and make more money. I don't need to say anything to management about technology...they know.
