    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.
