    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

    Fun, forward-thinking, always challenging the status quo, wants to do things that other banks and investment firms wouldn't do, great total compensation and work-life balance, fun management, internal educational and networking opportunities, socially conscious

    Cons

    Very few...the only one I can think of is the inability to relocate elsewhere in Canada or the US as the company is provincially restricted. If somebody wanted to move to Toronto or Vancouver for any reason, they would likely not be able to transfer employment with ATB.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin' on...great job!

    Pros

    Co-workers are a pleasure to work with.
    I do feel that I can and do make a differance sharing my experience to the team. My area of expertise is team driven.

    Cons

    I'm not entirely sure the line of business we serve feels that we make a differance at times.
    ATB continues to be Executive driven. There is a lack of appreciation for the "experienced" associates, leading one to think that experienced people are considered a barrier to success in delivering the message.

    Advice to Management

    I firmly believe all employees live the ATB story every day. If we didn't there would be a lack of motivation for success, and I'm proud to say there is certainly no lack of motivation.
    What will be the next flavour of the week?
