I am so grateful for the experiences and knowledge I gained while working at RBC. It truly was an unmatched experience to my other co-op terms at different companies and it is a place that really promotes inclusion and diversity like no other organization I have worked at. I had ample opportunities to prove my abilities, show senior management what I was working on, and improve on my skills. As an RBC employee, you really feel valued and don't just feel like a number (even with over 80,000 employees). There are also ample opportunities to do work or participate in activities and events outside of your typical day job, so you can explore other interests or continue to learn something you're passionate about. If you have the opportunity to work at RBC, I strongly recommend that you act on it and take the role. You will not be disappointed!
No major downsides, only somewhat negative aspect was the loud work space (on occasion).
Very open, approachable management that never was intimidating and never treated co-ops like an inferior. My manager was always there for me and made it clear that he was there to help me succeed and achieve my goals.
Very relaxed, fun environment, no cubicles, and a very positive environment.
Be yourself, show your interests and be a genuine person!
