    I have been working at City National Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work and grow! Everyone I have encountered has been here ATLEAST 3-25 years. They also continue to stay!!!!! Wonderful, Wonderful environment. Everyone is so kind and welcoming. I have been here for about four months and have been loving the learning experience. This is one of the best bank's to work for in DTLA! Everything is very efficient and modern. They have great perks, and lunch+learns, HR, and assistance if you ever need anything. I recommended it to all my colleagues.

    Pay is also very competitive, more so than other banks!!!!!

    Cons

    Have to pay for parking
    Parking lot is about 1 block away from building (5-8 minute walk)

    Advice to Management

    Great place!!! Keep up the good culture, and attitude. Everyone is really happy here.

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

    Pros

    Great company culture. Amazing benefits. Great people to work with. So much community involvement. It’s honorable. CNB is the best place I ever worked.

    Cons

    There is no room to grow and it’ll be very hard if you’re ambitious. You’ll work very hard and won’t be recognized or promoted. The company also doesn’t have a work from home policy, which makes commuting from all over Southern California to dtla very difficult and a kill overtime. I ultimately left for those two reasons, which was very sad considering how much I loved it there.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your stars. Allow room for growth versus just talking about opportunities for growth. Have a good policy on working from home so your employees will not be burned out.

    Pros

    Rapidly growing after RBC acquisition, strong bank in Los Angeles, managers care about your career growth, lots of growth opportunities within many different divisions in the bank. Work life balance is great, virtually no need for overtime unless it gets super busy.

    Cons

    Credit Analyst work involves lots of spreading, after a while it can get repetitive so it's up to you to pursue the next step
