I have been working at Scotiabank

Pros

Big respectful company (that could be a plus i guess)
Stable environment.
Pays for courses related to your work duries.

Cons

The pay is below standard
Too much bureaucracy to change from contract to full-time, if even when their rules state that after 5 years on contracts you are automatically become full-time.
Very uptight and hierarchy structured

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the bureaucracy down, reward employees competitively, stay current on technological side and inspire emplooyees to work for you and be proud about it.

    Pros

    If you happen to get a good boss, you will have a decent work life balance.
    Lots of opportunities to move around. However, your previous experience matters.
    Benefits are similar to what the other banks offer.
    Good place to start your career as a new grad or new immigrant.

    Cons

    Scotiabank employees get paid the lowest when compared to the pay in other 4 big banks
    Employees are severely underpaid and overly worked
    Management is made of people who have risen up the ranks based on experience
    Systems are outdated
    No training is offered
    New hires from other organizations get paid more than the existing employees
    No one is ready to take responsibility of issues. It is always the case of passing the buck.
