Client Advisor (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – July 18, 2016
I found management unhelpful and could not seem to prioritize either our goals and/or purpose. Sales driven without equitable distribution of acknowledgement dispersed to all staff. Incredible pressure to achieve sales targets with "chats" if the sales were not achieved, even those employees that have been with RBC for going on 30 years were feeling threatened. Work/Life balance valuation is poor at best. Constant split days off and changes to job arrangements without any recourse for the employee. My schedule changed 3 times adding more hours and days with another change coming again in June which lead me to leave.
Year end bonus
Work arrangements changing constantly and sales pressure is intense

Very nice clients, very nice colleagues, difficulties with management. Branch environment is not the best of the company since it is very retail oriented- similar to a retail shop- accent is on Sales and work is late hours on end of week and Saturdays. The work is replaced by new technologies and is very repetitve otherwise. Advancement is extremely slowly at best of cases. Many people leaving or changing and never replaced which creates strains for the remaining. Could be extremely stressful because of ever growing sales targets. The company was really the best I have ever worked for only 8 years ago...since the retail concept was implemented, hard to believe it became such an impossible and neurotic environment !

There are both positive and negative things. Late hours are typical. The management, however, stimulates innovations and arranges periodically technological competitions on hottest topics. The working conditions vary heavily from department to department.

The company is a great to work for and colleagues are fairly decent. Pay is relatively good, benefits are average. Management - highs and lows, depends on the team you are in. There are areas in the bank where management is great.
There are areas in the bank where the staff are often made the scapegoat because the middle management make mistakes or do not take accountability for delivery that they are responsible for. Where management is comprised of people who where from the capital market side of the business, you need to be very careful. Always need to be vigilant and need to protect yourself. Mean, cheating, bullies and backstabbing is found very often.
co-workers, some very good management, challenging work
Top heavy, too many layers, low moral is some areas
