I have been working at RB full-time (less than a year)

Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to take on responsibility at a very early stage. There is also a great opportunity to travel and work across various brands.

Cons

There is a bad work life balance. Especially due to the awkward commute between London and Slough- lack of bars etc in Slough also mean less team bonding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Move out of Slough

    RB gives opportunity for a fast career development but the high level of management is cost centric.

    I worked at RB as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fast career development. There is an exceptional team spirit .Many and different responsibilities from day one which gives motivation to try harder.

    Cons

    Unfortunately is the example of a cost driven multinational company . In order to minimize the operating costs they sacrifice many talent managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest to become more anthropocentric and to take the advantage of your biggest asset, your employees.

    I have been working at RB full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, openness to new modes of thinking, Good office environment, Intelligent, globalized workforce, resistance to many of the pitfalls that usually ruin Chinese workplace environments

    Cons

    Lower-than-expected English proficicency in the workplace (particularly among less senior team members)... Tendency to delegate responsibilities such that difficult tasks roll down the hill to less senior team members, Long Hours, lack of formalized job training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more professional incentives for people lower on the ladder in terms of job title, reward people going above and beyond on a more consistent basis
