      Pros

      Good Benefits/ Work life balance, people are decent

      Cons

      Favoritism, difficult to advance unless you have friends in higher places, many layoffs, Alberta government bank so no salary increases for non-union for quite a few years. Too many constant changes in vision and direction. People get let go so company can say they made a profit year to year

      Pros

      Remote Work, Great Retirement Matching.

      Cons

      Lack of leadership has most of the company running around in circles. A financial institution built out of off-the-shelf SAP products which have been white-labelled and turned into financial products. Transactions are largely untraceable within the various plug-and-plug interconnected systems and outages are often 20+ person meetings with 3 key people with access rebooting systems to resume functionality.

      Same old excuse on salary Freeze

      Pros

      Fantastic people around you. Tech & Work wise they give you flexibility. Okay benefits.

      Cons

      The worst part is salary. You get less salary at first place and then this Salary freeze on top of it. I have been listening same excuse from CEO and leadership team since last 5 years that we are talking with Gove and we are doing this and that. But it isn't clearly working for them or for lower-to-middle class employees. I am sure leadership team wouldn't have any issue with this at all. Middle class people suffer a lot with this especially in times like this when everything costs too much and you don't get the salary increment.
