I have been working at National Bank of Canada full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Very nice people
Good benefits and a db pension
Cheap banking and loans (even compared to other banks)
Amazing work life balance
Lots of different job postings and easy mobility within
Smart managers - on average
Downtown location
On average at head office 4 layers of management from entry level job 2 ceo.
Built in annual raise and bonus

Cons

Very big so hard to move up. With thin management structure for a bank, many equals few jumps from salary band are in.
More francophone than english so must be bilingual or french speaking to move up.
Very quebec centric so while are offices across canada, if you want to move up must stay in quebec, with little travel.
Its banking....so its not a "cool" industry with cool innovations or on the job perks unless you are a trader.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have a management training program put In place which would be a fast track for talent.

Spend more time in the field.

    I have been working at National Bank of Canada full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Medium size bank that strive to grow provide opportunity to whoever has potential. Constant changes in the organization may be frustrating for some but definitely offer a platform for opportunities. Responsabilities are not too segregated, therefore the environment favors learning and satisfies curious minds.

    Cons

    Still some road to go before reaching a global size. Communication may not be a strength for BNC yet and constant changes create instability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick to this vision but make sure that the human assets are preserved. We cannot get there if we do not have the right people.
