I have been working at Scotiabank

Pros

The company is in good shape at a time when the financial sector as a whole is in chaos. Offices and branches around the world mean opportunities for working abroad. There is an atmosphere if healthy competition, without much of the eat-rocks-and-crap-fire, alpha-dog stuff you might find elsewhere.

Cons

A fair amount of second-guessing; lots of paperwork; some of the same territoriality you will find in any big organization. Office location next to WTC site will be a downer for some (at least until something is finally built there).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep being cautious about risk and capital ratios. Maybe cut back a little on the strategic missives couched in wordy corporatese. When I read these, I'm not convinced that the thinking behind them is entirely clear.

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Gain experience, have rotational program to train you, great people that willing to teach and promote you. Will assist your career path. Helped my sister and brother in law to get a job. I attained my MBA with this company, my CMA designation, My house, and baby.

    Cons

    20% lower than market salary but will not fire ppl. Allow ppl to look for job even after sold of the department for a duration of 2 years. Treat mother differently, will not give so much challenge to you once you are a mother.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should have a annual career plan for staff, even after staff turn to a mother.
