    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Speed of action, Stable brands, committed to growth of business, and to a good extent, apolitical. Offers opportunities to anyone willing to stretch.

    Cons

    Highly transactional, considerable unwillingness to see people as humans. Rather view them as any other resource to extract business out of. HR is for namesakes, doesn't do anything concrete for employee wellbeing and engagement. Lives in their own little bubble. Poor work life balance. You are expected to put in late hours as a standard. Grossly lacks systems and processes required of a large business. Leaving... you to fend for yourself is a good thing but squarely putting the blame on the individual who tried, isn't. Not everyone in RB works to the pace that's demanded of the organisation and that leads to extreme lacuna. Some people are taking the organisation for a ride at the expense of hard working employees. Lack of systems ensures such people remain a blind spot for the management. Resistance to change, at times, too stubborn at the expense of the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Bench strength is fast depleting fast and RB is no longer what it used to be, maybe till five years ago. With so many people leaving, it's only a matter of time before the industry gets to know what's troubling RB and people think twice before joining.
