I have been working at Scotiabank

Pros

Good entry job. Looks good on a resume, salary is in range for a new graduate. Subsidies on continuing learning.

Cons

Don't expect anything fantastic. This is very much a 9-5 job. Have to remain in the position for a minimum of two years before applying for a promotion.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on developing the skills of the bankers. Provide training programs so that we are ready to be promoted into a better position.

    Pros

    Scotia Capital is very flexible with time off and provides a good work / life balance. They are not extremely strict about tardiness as long as the work is completed on time and delivered.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no chance for growth in some of the departments. TAG in particular has seen budget cuts and eliminated projects across the board. Its not a good time (2011-2012) to be working for this place because Capital Markets is suffering.

    The management is completely clueless about what needs to be done from a technological perspective to improve the efficiency of the business and the place runs like it was still 1989 with ancient systems that needed to be removed in the 90s itself.

    In addition, the pay is extremely low in comparison to what is offered by TD, BMO or RBC right across the streets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees suggestions and remove the ancient systems to catch up on par with the other banks. Invest some time in getting to know your employees better because you don't know the names or roles of anyone sitting in the same floors as yourselves.

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great buildings, great locations

    Cons

    Senior managers need coaching on how to treat their managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Creating opportunities for senior managers so they can create opportunities to their subordinates and do not feel that they have to put them down

    No opinion of CEO
