Account Manager (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls ONT – 27 June 2017
The commercial lending division of a major Canadian Chartered Bank. The job required the supervision of a commercial loan portfolio. This included both marketing and underwriting and also workouts and problem loans. My portfolio was one of the most profitable in the region
Fun workplace but not enough compensation for duties.
Credit Specialist and Team Lead (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 June 2017
As a credit specialist you are under a lot of stress from management and customers that you talk to on a day to day basis. Being in the office chair for long hours at a time can take a toll on your body.
Though they've changed locations, the work itself is tedious and boring as soon as you've become accustomed to it. Advancement is there, and the opportunity is amazing, but it does require a lot of work.
Personal Banking Advisor (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 25 June 2017
The people are great, however, the workload is always increasing. We do our jobs plus that of two other departments now for the same pay. It was a fun place to work 10 years ago but now the focus is less on staff and more on profits. It's a bank, after all. Having ergonomic work stations and chairs should be a cost that they would be willing to pay, but it's not.
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.

Market Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 19 June 2017
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.
