Great people, not so great management
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 22 June 2017
RBC is a huge place, so it'll depend on the department you're in. I was in IT HR Corporate Systems. Corporate Systems itself was pretty good. The culture was good, my team was fantastic and I really enjoyed working there. The problem was the management. Empty promises, no action, even as far as forgetful action (promising to do something, then nothing happens). People were given new positions and announcements were made, only for them to never transpire. The push to adopt Agile is everywhere, and the people are ready and willing to embrace change, but the old processes don't support the change. People still are expected to work in their own silo. Resource allocation is by percentages. RBC was supportive of training (all the time, it was great), they tried to embrace new technologies (with some success) so it was an excellent team work environment. I'd highly recommend the place, if you get a good boss.
Culture, training, opportunities
Management needs better training
