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

    Pros

    I was a past employee of CNB and I recently accepted an offer to become a colleague once again. Everyone here wants you to succeed. Help is always available and colleagues are usually always willing to be of assistance when anything comes up. There is lots of room for growth and CNB will invest in its people to make sure they grow professionally and personally. Truly a great place for a challenge and a career.

    Cons

    None that come to mind readily. Other than traffic in the DTLA area; but there is nothing CNB can do about that one! That's good ol' LA.

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking care of your employees! They truly appreciate it!

    Pros

    CNB encourages growth and promotes within the company. Excellent and reputable company to work for.

    Cons

    It may take a little longer to climb up the corporate ladder because people stay in their positions for quite a while

    Pros

    Very supportive, open, and positive corporate culture. People are very nice to work with and they compensate very competitively. If you are a motivated results oriented person this is a great place to work. I have worked at a lot of companies and this has been by far the best experience I have had to date.

    Cons

    Sort of a pro and con, at the time of this writing the bank is undergoing explosive growth. There is a lot of work to do so be ready for a challenge. This is not a place to work if you are looking to coast.

    Pros

    This company has a unique and supportive culture. I've worked hard here and it has been some of the most satisfying work of my career.

    Cons

    The commute has, at times, been difficult as I don't live close to my office in downtown Los Angeles. The company has been flexible to some degree in this area, but I would like to see more flexibility there.

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

    Pros

    The executive and senior leadership was outstanding while I was there. I joined the bank in 2005 and witnessed many other banks, especially of similar size, go through layoffs and stop their 401k matching during the height of the financial crisis - not CNB. The company was not involved in high-risk mortgage lending, so its loan portfolio remained very healthy. Once the economy recovered, merit increases returned to normal and salaries eventually recovered nicely. The company is well run, has a very strong sense of professionalism and client service. I'm not sure what the effect of the RBC acquisition has been as that happened after I left.

    Cons

    Nothing systemically wrong or bad about this company.

    Pros

    Great people (mostly), integrity is built into the culture, lots of company pride, interesting client base, main focus is on helping one another to best serve clients

    Cons

    Slow to change/adapt to changes in the competitive landscape, outdated technology, a bit of institutional arrogance

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire so many people from the big banks...it is changing the culture, and not for the better
