    I have been working at City National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Institutional knowledge is very deep, relationship-based business with great human capital, genuinely cares about customers, it's not all about greed

    Cons

    Integration with RBC still has a ways to go, some of the benefits of that integration won't be felt for a while

    Advice to Management

    Better leveraging RBC resources to improve platform integration. But otherwise, not a lot to criticize, this is the best culture I've seen before in finance.

    Pros

    Deep institutional knowledge, the Bank cares about colleagues and clients and wants to do the right thing. The move to 2CAL is great, the space is wonderful.

    Cons

    Coordination between divisions is not always as efficient as it could be - attributable to the growth since the RBC merger/acquisition.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lines of communication open on continued RBC integration. Great culture at the Bank and happy to be part of the team.

    I worked at City National Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    401k offered to full time or part-time employees with a matching of 50% of your 6% contribution ; health insurance, dental, paid sick days, HSA,profit sharing if fully vested.

    Cons

    If not fully vested, meaning 5 years working for the company, when leaving you cannot take the matching contribution to the next employer.

    Advice to Management

    The management should value the people not the numbers they represent on the balance sheet.

    I worked at City National Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of great colleagues and teams through the company

    Cons

    And, there are a lot of colleagues that are not so great across all lines of business. If you are looking to be hired into the MAPS department, I would think long and hard before you leap into this poorly managed department. From the executive to the senior manager, very poor leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and more so, be HONEST when communicating the findings of the company surveys.

    Pros

    Nice people. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    If you're not a banker, there's not as much opportunity for advancement. Salary progression is slow and painful.

    Pros

    City National Bank is expanding and there are lots of opportunities there.

    Cons

    They are moving everything to downtown. Makes it hard for those who dont live near there or dont have a way to take the train.

    You are spot-on with your comment about opportunities.
