I worked at RB full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

There is always an opportunity to fix something
Challenging by nature to fix whatever issue/business situation you have inherited
Can grow in the ladder if you are smart to pick opportunities where you are able to deliver them fast.

Cons

Many projects die after months because the changes/turnover/lack of follow-up of the person that inherited the project.
RB is very international/multicultural company, this also implies you are in a "lottery" of personalities that will be your teamwork
You can perceive when people have been or not been raised within RB by identifying those that are constantly celebrating the "past glories".
It is not a company for people that are process oriented or are looking for a work/life balance
You need to be aware of your own development, RB will not offer you "formal" training. People that are >4 years within RB seems to forget what is happening in the external world in terms of best practices.
Career opportunities only come to mobile people

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As many other companies, communication would be really good to improve alignment to RB goals.
It is good the new vision build for the company and more investment in sustainability.
Use more the HR function to assess the climate within the departments of the company.

    My experience at RB started off well and within the last year our succesful business/team has been destroyed.

    Pros

    People, the challenge is all the good people have left, continue to leave and or intervewing.

    Cons

    What has happened to RB Food in the USA? In the last year we have have fallen off a cliff. How can a healthy business turn into a disaster zone? Why is everyone leaving? So many people including our current & future stars have left. The morale, values, poor leadership, decision making, promoting people who clearly are not ready and constant change in direction coming from the top has caused this. I speak for a lot of the people who have resigned and it is sad to see a successful business destroyed in one year. It is time for a change in leadership!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to walk the talk! You can't have mission statements & core values which are not followed even by the heads of the business.

    I have been working at RB full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working time is managable, can get in & leave as per schedule. No overtime needed.

    Cons

    Office politic is very strong, people get sacked easily for doing 1 thing wrong, career aspiration is not being considered, do not believe in promote from within (always looking for outsiders to fill in empty positions)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the people a bit more, understand each person's aspiration, value people's loyalty.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
