    Pros

    Nice enough staff. Okay place to focus. Not so busy. It was a non branch though, so that's expecte.

    Cons

    Not a great structure.
    Poor communication between the manager and summer students.
    No real means of asking for clarification.
    My belief is that the direction and goals of management are not known to other levels. It's a bank.
    Not my type of work. I'm an innovator. So this review may not apply to your exp.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits, pension. Not as much required as the big 5 banks. Had an okay training program.

    Cons

    Where to start. Pushed out good employees. So much problems between employees. People will step on you and pretend to be your friend. It's a popularity contest. If your not liked your gone.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the old atb. The one that everyone was wanting to work for and employee moral was a lot higher. Better training as well for new employees

    Pros

    Decent culture if you're well liked.

    Cons

    Gross nepotism
    No intake or outtake process, people come and go on a whim

    Advice to Management

    Walk to the constant talk you talk. It's easy to say you're about your employees. Harder to show.

    Pros

    Great leadership from the executive and board. Flexible work arrangments. Love the ATBs. Focus is on team member and customer happiness with stories.

    Cons

    Perhaps should look at salaries, it is a very touchy topic and not necessarily welcomed with openess to at least hear.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Love it!!!
