    I worked at ScotiaMcleod full-time

    Pros

    Can meet some smart and connected people

    Cons

    This is a mostly a team based environment so your experience will vary. If you end up on a bad team with a bad advisor then RUN!! Be prepared to be blamed for every mistake your boss does and thrown right under the boss. and There will also be plenty of back stabbing a lying just to get ahead. If the lead advisor is generating some good $ managment really won't care about anything else. Also watch out if you end... up with an advisor that will take his clients for a ride for fees charged just because they will get away with it most of the time. You are made to feel guilty for taking a lunch break for for more than 15 minutes. Technology is also horrible and will not allow you to do your job properly which usually result in you getting blamed for doing your job too slow or not up to standard. Finally will usually be quite bad after you factor in all the overtime worked which there is an unspoken rule that you are not entitled to.

    I have been working at ScotiaMcleod full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Soctia Mcleod was a good investment banking firm with solid reputation with clients.

    Cons

    While technology lacked and focus on small clients lacked, the overall approach I took in a detailed focus on my clients worked very well.
