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.

Manager was only out for his own career, very selfish and near sighted. I was not around long enough to see if advancement would have been a challenge, I suspect that it may have. Big corporation, top-heavy, everything is a process and a form, not much creativity.
CA (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 18 June 2017
Management team always fail to value your effort. People who actually know how to use the system are stuck at CA and BA. Nothing you do is correct. Impossible sales target. Too many office politics. Always bully the new guys. Most likely, BM and ABM knows nothing. People who actually know how to use the system are stuck at CA and BA. Bank too cheap to upgrade system and ATM. Salary way too low for the thing we do. Do not care about client. Do not care about employee.

I have been working at RBC (More than 6 months) Pros RBC has a great atmosphere and it doesn't feel like a 9-5 routine work Work Life Balance is good with great vacation period and flexibility Salary is competitive with other banks Cons Can get hierarchical at points but I would say is still decent and somewhat multicultural at management level Slow advancement Advice to Management Continuously provide feedback Highlight path to advancement Career coaching with clear action plan

Client Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ontario – 9 June 2017
Absolutely the worst company I have worked for. Unachievable sales and pressure, unpaid expected overtime, toxic work environment. However they sucker you in with a nice benefit/pension package. Great place to work if you are willing to sacrifice your morals and mental health. Pay is also disgusting. You're better off at tim hortons for the same paycheck with none of the stress. Coworkers however were fantastic and the only thing that makes the day tolerable. Management is pretty unhelpful when needed. Overall, unless you want to 'bleed blue', pressure clients into sales to keep your job, and get nothing in return, look elsewhere ASAP.
Senior Business Systems Consultant/Project Manager (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 8 June 2017
A great place to learn new field of work. Working with contractors on-site and offshore is challenging at times due to different time zones. Hardest part of the job is prioritizing work items for different lines of business as they all want their items to be the top priority.
Bank Teller (Former Employee) – Cochrane, AB – 7 June 2017
Not a good place to work. You work your fingers to the bone with no reward. I spent 7 years there. The clients were lovely. The bank should go back to caring and not try to sell the same clients products they don't need. It's not retail.
