Nightmare Experience

1.0 of 5 stars

August 2017 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

The Investment Banking internship could have been worst, even though its hard to imagine how.

Downers

They sell the firm on the "culture" that the cultivate, but that couldn't be any further from the truth (especially within their Investment Banking Division). Diversity statistics were ridiculous (3 black interns out of 214), yelling and screaming was excessive and development and training of junior individuals was nonexistent (1 day of official intern training and the "intern project" was a fake presentation thrown together a the last minute).

Advice to Candidates

Run for the hills, and if you make the horrible choice to stay make sure you provide a honest review of how terrible the experience was because it's not fair for those that come after you to be warned.

Brutal culture

1.0 of 5 stars

December 2016 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Learned a lot while at my time there
Compensation was great
Working with other junior employees was the most rewarding part of the job

Downers

Culture was horrible - no respect for junior employees
Hours were the worst across the street easily. Consistently worked past 2AM every weekday.
No use of FactSet for excel modelling and building powerpoints. Are you kidding me? RBC invest in this instead of trying to hire a new crop of analysts 6 months.

Advice to Candidates

If you want to join RBC in Canada, be very wary that they are a churn and burn culture.

Midlevel in Fixed Income Capital Markets | New York, NY | 2015 | VERIFIED EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Opportunity, opportunity, opportunity, being able to be part of a growing bank stealing market share instead of defending it.

Advice to Candidates

My best advice to new candidates applying for jobs is to picture where you want to be in 2-5yrs after your internship. If the answer to that question is still grinding away making pitch books and working 90hr weeks... then this isn't the place for you. If you see yourself speaking with clients, coming up with trade ideas, running your own trading book... than RBC is the place for you.
