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

      Pros

      Great company with lots of organizational events (Summer fest, town halls, quarterly awards etc). Opportunity to grow your technical skills. Well organized. You're not forced to do lots of overtime (you're compensated by in-lieu time of you do OT) They have mandatory 2 days training for employees, which is good. Overall a very good organization to work for. Not a lot of politics, you can speak up and make things...

      Cons

      They don't allow work from home even though the offer letter states 1 day work from home per week is allowed. It's not easy to move within company (to different team) They're hiring more and more cheap offshore developers (and hiring contractors solely from TCS) who are just incompetent, making things a lot more difficult for onshore employees who end up having to fix things after them.

      Advice to Management

      Stop trying to save money by hiring cheap and incompetent offshore and TCS developers. You're just going to end up losing some good developers and employees as a result.

      Positive Outlook
      Approves of CEO

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

      Pros

      Emphasis on digital, but also on advice for clients, less pressure to sell even though you do have objectives

      Cons

      Working for a big company means a lot of possibilities, but almost too many to keep track of. Word doesn't get around easily enough about opportunities, and once you're in at a certain level, they'll string you along for a while before moving you up.

      Advice to Management

      Develop ways to fast track people who show potential into higher positions. Also that neat rotation program available only to students would be great for employees looking to make a change.
