    I worked at Scotiabank (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment, and plenty scope for upward mobility. Caters to the well being of employees and encourages self development. Pretty decent benefit package inclusive of productivity bonus.

    Can be demanding and tilts the work/life balance more often than not in favor of work. No overtime compensation for extra hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more accommodating to employee suggestions as it relates to alternative methods to work processes. Usually the suggestions are directed to facilitate or achieve a better work/life balance. Listen to the person walking the talk. This will auger well for increased loyalty, respect, and productivity.
