    Pros

    Nice enough staff. Okay place to focus. Not so busy. It was a non branch though, so that's expecte.

    Cons

    Not a great structure.
    Poor communication between the manager and summer students.
    No real means of asking for clarification.
    My belief is that the direction and goals of management are not known to other levels. It's a bank.
    Not my type of work. I'm an innovator. So this review may not apply to your exp.

    I worked at ATB Financial full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is good, benefits are great, there is lots of room and areas to move around the organization. Lots of volunteer activities to get involved in, being able to work remotely is a plus for sure. Some leaders are great including my direct supervisor.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, people get promoted/given promotions based on favoritism and friendships. Lack of accountability amongst upper management, be careful about challenging the norm or direction of management. This will put a target on your back and limit your career opportunities, management does not like to be shown they are wrong or misguided. Very little walking the talk, director took very little interest in getting to know team members, simply showed up when decisions were handed down, didn't actually know our business.

    Pros

    Lots of internal postings available. Been lucky so far because the people I worked with are nice. Well, most of them. Lot's of stuff to learn and training videos available.

    Cons

    Had only less than a week if shadowing and training. Then you have to find time to do training using videos but it has always been busy to do so.

    Highly innovative and team spirit is high. Career opportunities are endless once you get in and is millennial-friendly.

    Cons

    With innovation comes changes. People must be able to adapt to constant changes if you want to move up the ladder. Comp is so-so but perks are reasonable.
