    I have been working at RBC full-time

    Pros

    RBC is continuing to rise in the equity league tables and supports top analysts, but those at the lower end will find significantly less support. The bank tends to be conservative which is good in economic downturns.

    Cons

    Pay is a bit less than comparable Street positions and IT systems are behind the curve.

    Pros

    Coworkers are very talented and friendly, they are willing to help young employee to grow up. The culture of RBC truly differentiates itself from competitors.
