    "Registered Client Associate"

    Star Star Star Star Star

    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    None, they lead you to believe you are valuable and then display passive aggressive behaviors when they see what a hard worker you really are each day. They don't want to work as hard so choose to eliminate your position.

    Cons

    Support staff management is very controlling, OCD, and her way or the highway. No room for growth and threats of no bonus based on her mood that day.

    Advisors are fearful of management and not hard working.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at who you have managing/controlling the puppets. It all comes from the top.

    "Great company and culture"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I have been working at RBC (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Despite the traditionally high hours of investment banker, my employer made it enjoyable by ensuring I learn a lot, from time management to modeling skills.

    Cons

    I have no complaints; the employer meets or leads industry standards in training, culture, and work, so there are no difficulties specific to the employer that should be fixed.

    Advice to Management

    From my perspective, it appears that management has remained conservative yet thoughtful with its strategic outlook, so it is nice seeing the deliberate and steady strategy come to fruition.
