    I worked at Scotiabank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    (At branch level)Great chance to network and expand one's personal career to other places

    Cons

    Branch managers have been there for long time. Most of them have been there since they were tellers. Growth opportunities are limited to you own motivation. Do not expect to be given this chance on your own. Make sure you demand time to do so. Bonus pay is only disbursed in December......if you leave early then it is not pro-rated! Remember that!

    Advice to Management

    Try and encourage staff to grow in Organization and allow employees to focus in and use their strength to your advantage. Coercive mentality does not work!


  2. "Great learning opportunity"

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Scotia is Canada's most international bank - It has been an amazing opportunity to learn different aspects of banking and finance. Management encourages movement and growth.

    Cons

    Not the highest paying bank - but they are very good to you in other ways, the opportunity to grow and move, they paid for certifications and in house Spanish lessons.
