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

Pros

Some of the individuals within the bank are extremely intelligent, and they give access to upper management. Similarly, they have international rotational opportunities.

Cons

Culture is extremely cutthroat in investment banking and their is no sense of teamwork. Virtually no access to upper management as was once praised.

Advice to Management

Take time to train Jrs.
