    I worked at B2B Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice salary, near the subway

    Cons

    If you enjoy working in an open environment with rude, arrogant, ignorant and dumb people (for example, management), this is a wonderful place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to change (out with the old, in with the new) in order for the company to have a better outlook.

    Pros

    Made some great friends , get to learn a lot about financial institutions and instruments, location is good.

    Cons

    Mutual funds department if you did good it would be a group thing but if you messed up everybody would take a step back and point fingers, management changed in the middle of my contract became very high school like micromanaged they would senior management would stand outside office to see if ppl would leave before 5 even 5 minutes before and get called out, they started doing round at 8.30am to see if anybody was late and if so would be called out again.
    Felt like my department had no growth ppl in my team were in the same position for 10 years or so.

    Advice to Management

    Need to treat employees with more independence , less micro management, certain departments should be injected with some growth opportunities as ppl have stagnanted their doing and being in the same position Years on.

    I have been working at B2B Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chance to be part of the transformation of a bank that is still quite young.
    Part time opportunities available for those pursuing other commitments.
    I have never enjoyed the company of my colleagues as well as I have here, we work hard and are there to help each other at every step.

    Cons

    Contract opportunities sometimes lead talented staff to move to full-time roles elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    The concerns are voiced and known. it is only a matter of time before we see the work that is currently under way. Keeping moving upwards and onwards!

    I worked at B2B Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good location downtown, new office with new furniture

    Cons

    Horrible management, they display open contempt for their staff and try to reduce everything to stats based on a system that doesn't work AT ALL. They need to upgrade software desperately, their workflow system is the absolute worst piece of crap ever invented. People who learn to manipulate it get great reviews, people who work hard and take on the difficult cases get screwed. When you explain this to your manager, they insist you follow the numbers even though you know they're telling the wrong story. They like to pretend that the staff review system is fair and unbiases but nothing could be further from the truth. I exceed expecations for 2 straight years, then I get a new manager and all of a sudden I'm a "needs to improve" even though I hit every one of my assigned targets. Not biased? It's a bad joke, and I'm so glad I left, the atmosphere was way too toxic for my liking.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the entire HR Department, develop an staff review system that actually works to reward the hard workers. Terrible managers never get judged because they get reviewed only by their direct manager and their staff reviews are ignored. Need to find a way to root out low quality managers as there are lots of them! When the Canadian housing bubble and stock market fall, B2B will be exposed for the lousy credit quality of its holdings, better start preparing before it's too late.
