What is the investment banking culture like at RBC Capital Markets? Decent hours? Good deal flow? Less weekend work?
Currently working in Admin Services and I hate the culture can’t stand being treated like a servant. Literally went from doing actual client work where I was respected to getting paid to fetch coffee and water. (Not joking) I enjoy the company but my current role is demeaning. Any suggestions on how I can exit admin services? I’ve applied for several positions. However it’s starting to feel like I just won’t get the opportunity to do something challenging. My degree is in Criminal Justice and I’m currently finishing my project management certification. My HR manager is aware of my desire to move and suggested I network. Any other suggestions.

What does an Associate partner role at IBM looks like ? What is an average compensation + bonus. Appreciate your reply.
I’m finding that a weird side effect of losing my job in this climate is ad agencies taking advantage of my weakened position. They get in touch, proactively or in response to my reaching out, and they want to hire me as they are in good shape. When I reveal I was laid off, the offer changes to freelance or maybe nothing. My work, awards, the fact that they know me and approached me in the first place should be enough. I don’t want to lie about my situation. Any ideas how to avoid this?

I found out my mentors were laid off today and I’m devastated. I really can’t believe this, but at the same time I can. They’ve been at the company for over 20 years and have given so many people a chance when they would have otherwise been overlooked. I’m heartbroken for them and really wish there was something I could do. How could the leadership team not see how valuable they are? Who thought this was a good idea?
