    Pros

    Good training platform and programs to advance, especially beginning roles. Licensing​ programs only from within.

    Cons

    Not the best compensation structure for personal advisor roles, low base and no incentives or commissioner, however high sales targets.

    Advice to Management

    Proper compensation will enclose employee loyalty and engagement on all levels of the job, and encourage future growth. Also, management often focused on sales targets ,but not customer service or advisor overall performance. Also more programs should be offered to university grads, co-ops or graduation.

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

    Pros

    There is nothing good to say about my experience here.

    Cons

    The management does not know how to manage people properly. Even after putting in 60 hrs every week, they demand more hours. No team work. No motivation. No encouragement. Not a place to work if you want to advance your career.

    Advice to Management

    Bring on new management. RBC Insurance is failing in every category.
