Great Employer
Senior Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ONFebruary 12, 2016
My experience with Royal Bank of Canada has been truly amazing. A great place to work with lots of learning opportunities. Every day was exciting with new challenges and learning. The management was very supportive and understanding and strongly believed in open-door policy. Similar to Facebook, RBC has internal social networking platform where all employees are welcome to share their views, experiences, opinions, best practices, product information, even start a blog. I love my co-workers and every day look forward to meeting them and working in collaboration as partners.

Working for RBC is a great experience to expand your skills and understanding. Co-workers are extremely friendly. Hours are a little bit to handle since its a 24 hour environment but manageable. It is office work, computer work you are constantly sitting down.

Varies from department to department. Overall culture has cost cutting as the overriding theme and can be challenging from a capacity perspective.

Good place to work for sales oriented people
Disputes Advisor (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QCJanuary 23, 2016
Benefits and salary were fair. Corporate culture is a bit like a propaganda machine shoved down your throat and contradictory. If you are good at sales or respect/appreciate a sales focused company, you'll be satisfied. Sales aspect seems to be pervasive in the vast majority of roles at this bank. Usage of sports team psychology and coaching techniques are at times insulting to intelligence.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Corporate Propaganda

a good place to start your career
Customer Services Representative (Former Employee) –  Victoria, BCJanuary 22, 2016
When I worked there was definitely a glass ceiling. Guys with less education and experience got promoted faster than women.

Some of the women in power were hard to get a long with.

Technical Lead (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJanuary 19, 2016
Though it is nice place to work, i would like to explore different opportunities and different work environments.

Most of the time, we used to occupy complete 8 hours and along with that we used to have our offshore call after hours.We have very healthy work environment and got a chance to learn many things.

Rewarding and enjoyable work atmosphere with great colleagues
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ONJanuary 7, 2016
Working for the RBC was a great work experience as I had the opportunity to move around to several locations, as I was hired on a contract to help cover maternity leave, vacations, sick leave etc. of full time employes, so I was able to learn a lot of the financial industry from a wide range of different people and costumers. There were obviously many obstacles to overcome, but everyone worked quite well as mentors and a team.
Pros
Great CSR experience
Cons
Long commutes

Stable employment, little/no opportunity for growth
Office Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONDecember 30, 2015
RBC is a stable, well-respected organization, highly conservative and still quite traditional in thinking. The organization desires growth, but is unable/unwilling to invest the time/resources to be agile and transformative.
