I worked at RBC Financial Group

ProsThe "Goldman" of Canada. Strong bank who avoided the problem of others. Second tier in terms of getting larger investment banking deals. People are friendly.

ConsBase salary and bonuses are below the street. Perhaps too risk adverse. Employees are not very interactive. Management oftent content and lacks innovation.
