I worked at National Bank Financial

Pros

Its a secure bank.
Compensation is ok.
They will give you a fair package if laid off.

Cons

Management at the brokerage division are poor and integrity is weak. They keep changing their mind about what they would like to be and have made some weak strategic decisions as a result.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do what is best for the wealth management area and stop listening to the high priced investment bankers and derivatives department.
