    Former Employee - Institutional Sales 

    I worked at RBC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Good work life balance. -Easy discussion with upper management, everyone is willing to communicate with all levels. -Open culture. -Most management is open with your explorations within the business you own as long as you focus and the communication is close with managers. -Being able to work globally (You get the know most of the teammates from other centers)

    Cons

    -Bit on the political side when it comes to management. -High turnover on the front office desks. -As much as colleagues tell you that you will get a lot of support, it is in the end a one man show culture to succeed. You will need to learn a lot of things by your self and cannot rely on others. (Can be a pro/con depending on the culture you prefer)
