    I have been working at Scotiabank (More than a year)

    Pros

    I joined Scotiabank in 2016 and started working in the Digital Factory - our innovation hub tasked with transforming the customer experience. There, I had the opportunity to work with the most talented group of individuals in my international career and have made significant impact to the work, culture and team. It's been an incredibly rewarding experience.

    I recently moved to another new group to the bank. Scotiabank saw this skill-set as being an important one for the bank so they invested in it's creation.I think that's pretty amazing.

    If you're looking for a place that will challenge you, offer meaningful training / development opportunities and give you access to some of the best leaders in the business (technology, retail banking, operations etc.) than this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Some processes need to be re-designed but it's in the works!

    Advice to Management

    Keep your foot on the gas and investing in skillsets that are going to continue to drive our transformational change.
