I was at RMB Private Bank for a year and a half. I learned a lot and the people you work with are great. It is a stressful environment but this helps you in becoming a better employee.

This place felt like home from the beginning, It was work from day 1 with gifts daily for the 1st week. The environment is a little hectic at times as with any other financial institution but I found a lot of support and my bosses are the best and most patient people I've worked for. The general atmosphere is relaxed though from time to time you deal with the odd person throwing a tantrum. I honestly hope to get a permanent position here as this is an environment I enjoy wholeheartedly

RMB Private Bank is a great step for career establishment. Hard work and long hours are needed to advance into a new role. Private Banking continues to offer great access to interesting clients however poor operations/processes don't allow bankers to reach optimum sales potential (This is the hardest part of the job) No offices abroad. Most enjoyable part of the job is turning upset clients into satisfied one's and salvage these relationships. Management is excellent, fair and represent great leadership.
Pros
28 days leave per annum
Cons
bottlenecks and poor processes leading to client complaints

My day at work most of the time is very unpredictable as there are alot of changes on a continuous basis. I have learned alot in terms of knowledge and the systems and also the different types of individuals that one has to work with. My co-workers are very diverse and I am an extrovert so I get along with everyone. The hardest part of my job is that of being treated like school kids. The most enjoyable part is that I love a challenge and I give it my best to achieve the best results.
Pros
free juice, coffee, tea
Cons
unable to work flexible hours, expected to work from home as well without pay.
