    I had a co-worker (banking advisor) who was able to change her schedule and breaks around so she could drop her kids off at school in the morning and pick them up from day-care on most days

I have been working at this company for almost 4 years and there are a lot of women working here, but they are all assistants. Even if you are a financial adviser people assume you are an assistant. RBC does not reward their employees either--in fact during annual reviews our manager confesses that RBC pressures her to give only "satisfactory" ratings to employees and if you are new to the firm you automatically receive the lowest rating.

RBC CM has grown exponentially in revenue and market share in the US. As a result there has been much management turn-over, which has been good. On the other hand, management is male-dominated and petty issues still affect work politics. As a Canadian company they perpetuate a theory of great work environment and respectful attitude. As with all large companies, that only goes so far for so long, there will always be people or days where that doesn't hold true. Maternity leave and vacation/sick pay are not exactly on par with the companies they want to compete with in the industry. They certainly don't offer what they offer to our Canadian counterpart. Further, the industry standard of vacation and sick leave, they are not matching their competitors. Four weeks of paid vacation and unlimited sick days are typical for the industry in New York. RBC in New York only offers four weeks of paid leave (vacation and sick days) and three days of floating holidays. Working remotely is also not easy to manage even though there are policies some departments are led by persons who hate the idea of it and are judged by their heads of the department for asking for such a plan. All-in-all, post maternity leave and child care concerns abound at this company because flexibility is not built in to the company framework. Someone considering employment should factor these in very carefully.

    Maybe. It's a very large company, even the U.S. division, RBC CM. There are many opportunities and many roles a woman can find fulfilling, but advancing your career is not done well here. Maternity leave is also not done well.

Review for New York/ New Jersey RBC CM finance office - Good company, quite conservative and therefore stable. It is mostly male dominated in management roles and it's quite hard to get promoted (for everyone, not just women) as the departmen is management heavy. There is no good career guidance. However, you start with 4 weeks of paid time off (vacation & sick leave) and 3 floaters (holidays that fall on working days). After 2 years with the company you receive additional 4 days off. Current maternity leave is 3 months which, sadly, in the United States is considered great. There is also paternity time allowed but not sure how many days. Lots of nice people work at RBC CM.
