    I have been working at RBC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Reasonable salaries, amazing benefits, great work-life balance, modern tech, comfortable and modern workspace, can work from home, love my co-workers

    Cons

    Huge pile of legacy software to wrangle with, management not always the best, too many contractors/consultants

    Advice to Management

    Let your devs pick the technology to use instead of backroom deals, stop hiring so many useless contractors and overpriced consultants

    "Best in class large organization"

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at RBC full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Good pay that becomes materially more attractive at the director and senior director level - Generally good work life balance but this will depend on team and project - Tons of ways to get involved in initiatives around corporate social responsibility - Politically correct organization - Infrequent firings and layoffs, roughly 1 signficant re-org resulting in significant layoffs per decade (1 per CEO)

    Cons

    - Large organization results in slower turnaround - Systemically important financial profile results in bureaucracy and lots of checks and balances - Infrequent layoffs result in lots of deadweight, people who occupy office and create presence through throwing hurdles

    Advice to Management

    - Restructure more often to eliminate dead weight and reward performance, formalize education commitment for employees, create formal career paths for specialist role (e.g structured development in key specialist roles such as credit risk, statistics, modellers, developers, marketers)

    Pros

    Friendly environment, opportunities to meet people with different background. Management varies from team to team, some of them are well managed, some are messy. Good work/life balance for most of the time.

    Cons

    Low pay, and the business has a negative prospect.

    For the most part, great people to work with, friendly work environment, good work life balance. Competitive salary and benefits.

    You have great people that really care about what they do. They just need to be put in a position to succeed.
