    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 (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You will enjoy a lot of freedom in how you do your work. Many have the flexibility to work from home. Great benefits package.

    Cons

    Management is very quick to dismiss people from the organization. ATB has a long standing reputation for this. Their Transformation program is chaotic making it difficult to navigate the organization. Finally, they are very inefficient in how they do things when compared to other banks, expect this to become a challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Stop thinking ATB is so special that you need to ignore industry best practice. Adapt it and leverage it to your advantage, it's the result collaboration by some of the smartest people in the world. Get more efficient so you can give more back to Albertans since your are a crown corporation.
