    Financial Analyst Intern

    Financial Analyst Intern (Former Employee) Bakersfield, CA

    ProsDecent hours, pretty low stress, good experience for someone looking to go into banking or finance, met with other interns across California 3 times throughout the summer. Travel all paid for.

    ConsSometimes ran out of work to do, not too much team collaboration

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould like to be able to learn more about the different aspects of banking. Would also like to be able gain a little more experience and not run out of work during the day.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    IT NY

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsEmployees are good people. Benefits are good.

    ConsManagement is totally disconnected from the work force. Manage by fear and intimidation. They give no sense of support towards the work that you do. Use a lot of desired culture driven terms like CRISP but do not practice what they preach.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe fear and lack of motivation is caused by senior management. Bad feedback from employee surveys is directed at senior managers not middle management. You can't fix motivation by giving objectives without supporting your managers.

    – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great benefits but very "corporate".

    ConsAfter the banking collapse at the end of 2008, Rabobank N.A. became very "corporate" and cut throat.

    The talent level varies across groups and it seems to be a slower move up the ladder if you're not Dutch

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros-Friendly and professional environment
    -Strong credit culture and conservative environment, not likely to blow up
    -Focus on growing and sustainable businesses - food, agriculture, renewables

    Cons-My group works long hours 60+/week for not much bonus
    -Dutch colleagues from the home country tend to get more promotions
    -I feel like there is deadweight in the company

    Advice to Senior Management-Promote people more based on a meritocracy
    -Pay people a competitive amount
    -Committ to initiatives you set out to achieve
