    I worked at RBC full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    good work life balance: plenty of team meals/gatherings esp during holiday seasons, 2hr lunch acceptable, not much OT needed HR does try to organize events or training seminars once in a while. nice colleagues in general but it really depends on the RM you are serving. Wonderful Singapore Branch CEO who is very on the ground and cares for the team's welfare, amazing lady.

    Cons

    Substantial politicking , just like every other bank. Banking system and processes can be considered sub-par compared to other private banks Rigid procedures at times and it hinders work a couple of nasty people but no one speaks up against them cos of their intangible power (e.g. a certain PA). work can get monotonous, but it's a stable job for the assistants. RMs however have a higher KPI sales target to meet. management/HR will try all means to cut cost due to the ever rising competition in the industry, rather petty in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Too focused on driving revenue such that there's no distinct culture within the bank. but i guess it's common in the financial industry.

    I have been working at RBC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The culture is good. Work-Life balance is great. Laid-back Canadian lifestyle.

    Cons

    Smart people are few and most people are grandfathered in their jobs and have no motivation to do anything exciting. If you want a paycheck and go home, this is the place. Not many senior level positions to advance to.

    Advice to Management

    The bank needs to do a better job at incubating talent and ideas within all teams. PL07 and lower need to have a voice and their ideas need to be heard and taken seriously. Invest in new ideas, technology and talent.
