Does anyone have any idea how RBC New York is viewed on the street? What are the top groups and what do the exit opps look like? Does anyone from RBC tend to make it into PE mega funds or successful laterals to EB's or top BB's

Thanks

Not sure how viewed on jr. level but some groups have reputation for being sleazy. Leaky shop. Seniors have crook-like tendencies.

Really? Some people say they have decent culture - mainly a mixed bag. I've never heard of them being sleazy, I know they can be hardos trying to compete with the big boys. Any idea on what the exit opps are like? I want to work at large PE fund in NYC like Brookfield

Im not so sure about that sleazy opinion lmao, but they definitely can be tryhards

Inferiority complex? But they do some solid work. Any idea on exit opps?

Exit ops: federal prison (better hours)

Try to get into the M&A group if you're looking solely at exit opps. Heard culture is eh (people are super nice but don't do much together because the team is so large) and it's kind of a sweatshop (85-90ish on average for analysts - according to a younger friend who interned there last summer).

But it is by far the best group for exit opps at RBC. Megafund/UMM is possible but rare if you come from the right background (top target, gpa, etc) as I know people have placed at KKR, Blackstone, and L Catterton in the last two years. MM PE seems to be the norm and is more than doable. Exits are tough from other groups but heard they have much much better hours/culture than M&A so most ppl stick around for A to A

What does the recruiting process for PE look like? Do they still care about grades or the deals you have worked on. Do you know much about Brookfield PE in NYC?

Why are you obsessed with Brookfield (which by the way is real estate not traditional corp PE)
