    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 a year)

    Pros

    A very value driven company, it lets us be the decision makers in creating value and helping our customers. ATB will look through every avenue before saying no to the client. As a leader I know there is so much personal development and support given to me to be better and ask the right questions.

    Cons

    not really a con, but hopefully in future we could choose where we worked from, even if it was out of the province and/or country.
    FIX the SAP, there needs to be some upgrades, it crashing all the time etc. is a hindrance for us to provide amazing customer experience.

    Advice to Management

    continue to drive the way you are, there is a reason we all work for ATB. Re-imagine the scorecard (RFS) so it is only based on CAI and CRI. A lot of the time no one wants to do "service work" as it doesn't get them units/revenue. I think by taking that away, everyone then delivers more towards the customer obsessed environment, and there is no more of having to find the one PB that will take accountability and help the customer.


  7. "A bit too much koolaid"

    I worked at ATB Financial full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility, friendly environment, progressive leadership

    Cons

    Lots of wasted time and money with daily changes to important decisions. Makes it hard to get any forward momentum.

    Advice to Management

    Read the book "Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble". Tone it down with all the koolaid talk. Feels like there's a lot of big talk but no substance.
