VP of Information Technology (Former Employee), mississauga ontario – April 26, 2013
Cons: some team members weren't reliable
Being part of Junior achievement in RBC, I had the opportunity to come out of my shell and run in the elections to become a vice president. I was elected as the vice president of information technology, and was in charge of creating an attractive website to sell and market my company's product. I was led under a supervisor that taught me the basics – more... of Human Resource management, as well as Information Technology in a workplace. It was difficult to find new and innovative ways to appeal to the customer base, and it was also hard to think of new products while staying within a budget. I earned experience in being a leader, working with others, being creative, and speaking to people. I also learned effective ways of marketing a product. – less
Senior Manager, Global Economic Sanctions (Current Employee), Toronto, ON – March 31, 2013
Pros: good vacation and bonus package
Role at RBC is good from global perspective. It is from that perspective that one is able to implement a continuous challenging sanctions and AML Compliance program. This is a different set of skills from what is required as an auditor - the ability to effectively implement challenges and gaps, not just identify the gaps.
It is also a challenge finding – more... qualified individuals for different positions within my team (Sanctions Payments Escalations & Sanctions Investigations). Our team is lean and requires skills that enable someone to pick things up quickly, ask the right questions and be able to interact with a variety of people. – less
