    I have been working at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Senior management focused on profitability, client experience, employee experience, social responsibility, diversity... they seem to really care and to get it - Business managers treat people like people (not always the case in the mean streets of Finance) - NY office has a good collaborative set-up in a nice midtown building with free gym, etc. - You can work hard and still have a life... that seems to be peoples'...

    Cons

    - Smaller banking platform than major Canadian peers and much smaller than global or US peers (not necessarily a Con, but a fact nonetheless) - NY office not always front of mind for the bank's Montreal (and Toronto) leadership

    Advice to Management

    - Mostly keep doing what you're doing, but... >>> improve communication between groups >>> don't treat NY office like it's a provincial outpost...it's freakin' New York!
