    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 have been working at ATB Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Strong sense of purpose. Big time focus on customers and Alberta's greater good. A great work environment - - very inclusive where you can bring your true self to work . ATB is also google shop with tools for collaboration and agile practices. The CEO and senior executive team is open, approachable and caring.

    Cons

    The only con (which could also be a pro) is that the job opportunities are limited to within the province. That said, there is a small percentage of team members who live outside of Alberta and are still able to fullfill their job /role working remotely. The technology and collaboration tools makes it easy! (guess thats a pro too)

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture alive!

    I have been working at ATB Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have had the pleasure or working within the culture of ATB Financial well before we had the 11 ATB's.

    ATB Financial has continued to evolve and become better within each iteration to be THE PLACE TO BANK and most definitely THE PLACE TO WORK.

    As we continue to evolve while always growing pains, there is amazing opportunity for personal and professional growth along with conversations to align your talents to either the day to day job or experiential growth opportunities.

    Cons

    I don't believe I have any cons to comment on. Every business has items that one might not see eye to eye on. Having the honest conversations in an appropriate way is fundamental to relationships and personal brand.

    Advice to Management

    With growth the awkward stage of finding your feet is a component of doing business. Where team members want to pursue additional training the dollars spent are well worth the money.
