I have been working at Scotiabank full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Solid team of professionals
- Strong executive leadership
- Good opportunities for advancement

Cons

- Big organization means bureaucracy and a certain amount of red tape
- Not as much cross-training or opportunities to cross business lines as there should be

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improvements to employee compensation should be explored. Initiatives to cross-train employees across business lines should be encouraged and championed as a matter of corporate policy and culture. Health and fitness initiatives should be encouraged. These measures may cost up front but they really are business enablers - they will improve overall employee satisfaction, quality and capacity of work.

    Office politics is rampant. Negativity is contagious and consequetive days of no sales can get you down. Horrible hours - 3 pm to 11pm
