The people I worked with were very social and friendly. I was given truly valuable work that directly added value to the firm. I learned so much in regards to municipal finance and grew not only as a financier, but as a person.
I did put in a lot of hours, but I realize that in order to succeed with anything you pursue, hard work is necessary. Overall, RBCCM does everything to make the hours worth while and they really do take care of you with paid dinners and cabs everyday as well as a seriously amazing office space/building.
Advice to Potential Interns
You may have never heard of RBC Capital Markets before, as I did not before applying and interviewing. But, don't let that hold you back. RBC truly is a leader in the industry and just because it may not be as well-known in the U.S just yet doesn't mean it's not the right place for you. Trust me, the culture says it all here.
