    I have been working at RBC full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, wonderful managers, and work is at times challenging.

    Cons

    Limited room for growth if you work in Vancouver (but Toronto is great for those looking to move up). In this particular role, the work/life balance can be challenging. Much of the work comes in spurts, and requires long hours to complete on time - add in traveling throughout the Province, and there isn't a lot of time to see friends&family.

    Good job with good pay and benefits.

    Boring work with lots of repetition and you have to get up too early.

    Advice to Management

    None, they are doing the things they need to do.
