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.
Greta place to work, learn and advance. Typical day starts at 7:30 ends at 5 or 6. I like to come in a hour early to plan for the day so I am best prepared for client interactions. Best part of job is educating people on products and options that are available to them financially.
Client Advisor, Business Services (Former Employee) – High Prairie, AB – 9 May 2017
Worked in the midst of a lot of changes. It was very hard to start work in a place that was going through so many changes with management and staff. Staff didn't last very long and didn't have a lot of staff to begin with and still don't.
Program Manager Production Resiliency (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 5 May 2017
Offshoring and non technical management in IT is leading this once great company to near disaster in my opinion. As the leading bank in the country should show leadership in job creation and maintain a healthy job environment. Greed is killing IT.
Night Deposit Clerk (Former Employee) – Nassau, ON – 4 May 2017
in charge of entering deposits for clients accounts. Learned a little about business and how to be more responsible with my money. The culture in the workplace was simply production. This job required you to stay focus at all time to ensure to mistakes or misplacement of funds.
Experience will differ based on the manager you work with. My initial manger was knowledgeable and supportive and wasn't always about number. The work environment creates competition amongst peers which can be good and bad. Succession planning is evident but will be more favourable to individuals who are more influential and recognized by their managers.
Good bonuses based on performance.
Aiming for bonus can be harmful to the clients who depend on you for advice.
Central Teller (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 3 May 2017
RBC's an exciting, friendly professional place to work at. I started as training on the job and was able to advance to a position with high responsibilities within a short time after being hired on. The people were always friendly, open, curteous and always helpful. They always tried to stay up to date with new trends and always looking for ways to make things user friendly and helpful for the clients.
INSURANCE ADVISOR (Former Employee) – Oakville, ON – 3 May 2017
Very little traffic at the Insurance branch. Over 100 outbound calls daily. Building rapport with current RBC clients. Upsell and offer as many products as possible. Communicate with the community to become the referred advisor.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 30 April 2017
My direct manager was fantastic. Unfortunately, the project manager and main stakeholders wanted nothing more that to make themselves look good, while trying to use the business analyst as a scapegoat for their own lack of effort and clarity for their product roll-out. I would not recommend to anyone to work at RBC, either full time or contract. I was actually warned not to accept an opportunity there by fellow colleagues who had previously held positions within RBC.
