    I worked at RBC Capital Markets full-time

    Pros

    - friendly culture
    - decent work/life balance
    - opportunities for internal positions
    - competitive benefits

    Cons

    - could do more to provide employees with professional qualifications
    - salary and compensation slightly below market rate

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management are very personable and approachable at all levels. While this is a plus point in the main, one could argue that a little more authority from management would yield better performance.
