    Would recommend RBC

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRBC continues to grow, not only in business, but in the community - helping children with their education, mentoring them and providing guidance to help prepare them for their futures; playing a part in the process of protecting our water supply; and in various other ways. Also, RBC encourages and supports work-life balance.

    ConsDepending on the manager, career advancement can be challenging.

    I liked it.

    Equity Trader (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsHigh payout. Access to capital. Good support. Good benefits. I liked working there was profitable every month I worked there.

    ConsManagement wanted to change my deal as soon as financial crisis hit. Was profitable every month, never took drawdowns, they didnt care. Raised commisions, lowered payout. So I left

    Advice to Senior ManagementDont change employees deals for no reason. Asses each person on their own merits and dont force profitable traders to subsidize unprofitable ones.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
