    Pros

    This company truly walks the walk and talks the talk. They have consistently followed through with everything they promised in my interview/hire process. The learning process is fine tuned, minor glitches but so much better than anywhere else I've ever worked. Compensation plans are fair within the market, with a bonus payout that is incredible!

    Cons

    It is difficult to find cons - as always, I'm sure I would love more money, less conference calls and meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue moving forward with state-of-the-art systems, encouraging your staff to grow within themselves. You are already doing the right things, so keep up the good work!

    Pros

    ATB is an amazing company that genuinely cares about it's employees and customers. If anyone is considering applying to ATB, I would highly recommend it. It would take a LOT to get me to consider leaving this company

    Cons

    Parts of the company are members of AUPE, which is of no fault of ATB, however it does inhibit ATB's ability to effect positive changes for these employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build on the progress that has been made so far, and the employee engagement will keep climbing.

    Pros

    We encourage work life balance in a Results oriented work environment. I can get so many things done at work, at home and still find time to serve the community.

    Cons

    I have to enter at least 5 words for con. Let me think... Will get back to you next time :)

    Pros

    ATB is one of the most, if not the best organisation that I have worked for. I relocated from the UK and I cannot think of one FI that would mirror the work ethics and principles of ATB Financial. People are so diverse, creative, flexible, trustworthy and autonomous, putting YOU, the team member first and really demostrating that they care for you. Nothing is too much to ask for, and everyone that I work with is friendly, supportive, energetic and great company. The benefits package whihc I have just subscribe to again provides for so much, you really do have a great quality of life.

    Cons

    I can't think of any!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide consistency across the organisations so all team members have the opportunity to benefit and experience the great environment that you provide.

    Pros

    ATB is one of the few companies that I have found that actually walks the talk. They speak of a great place to work and plenty of diversity, and they show it. Salary is at the top of industry standard, and everyone is approachable. Love that Dave is such a great leader, always has time to stop and chat with you.

    Cons

    So far I have found no cons with working with ATB. Time live balance is great, the leaders are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up!
