    Pros

    Great work/life balance and flexibility

    Cons

    Hard to move up because most of the good jobs are for Canadian employees in Toronto

    Advice to Management

    Recruit good talent in the US versus transplanting Canadians to take on leadership roles in the US. It's demoralizing for current employees and not developing local talent in the organization

    Pros

    Great place to work. No cap on incentive depends on how hard you work.
    Salary is higher than other local banks. Managers are great and seem to care about the team.

    Goals are high but attainable.

    More training to help less seasoned Bankers succeed. More time for Bankers to work with mentors to learn ways to be more successful.
