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

Pros

- Solid team of professionals
- Strong executive leadership
- Good opportunities for advancement

Cons

- Big organization means bureaucracy and a certain amount of red tape
- Not as much cross-training or opportunities to cross business lines as there should be

Advice to Management

Improvements to employee compensation should be explored. Initiatives to cross-train employees across business lines should be encouraged and championed as a matter of corporate policy and culture. Health and fitness initiatives should be encouraged. These measures may cost up front but they really are business enablers - they will improve overall employee satisfaction, quality and capacity of work.
