  8. "Great ideas and the culture shift from the C-level never make it to regular employees..."

    Pros

    - The ability to work from home and other benefits (banking, pension plan).
    - Flexible workday.
    - Most of colleagues are awesome!

    Cons

    - Great ideas and the culture shift from the C-level do not seem to make it to regular employees due to the "filter" (people) below them.
    - Some managers are quite incompetent and play too much politics instead of doing their work and what is better for their people and the company.

    Advice to Management

    - C-level: make sure your messages do go through to all people not just to the managers. When you transform - make sure you do not get rid of and do keep the competent employees (I do not see that so far).
    - Mid-level management: do not be afraid to speak up!

    Pros

    ATB financial is an amazing employer. They provide various benefits such as health, RRSP contribution, Pension matching etc.

    I will highly recommend anyone to work here

    Cons

    There are changes occuring. The people are great however the settling time is very less. I guess the structure is evolving for the better hence there will be a time when this is no longer a con

    Advice to Management

    Management is great and very supportive of the employees. they are very open minded and always looking to hire progressive employees. The work culture which is designed is amazing and very few companies in the world follow the same routine

    I have been working at ATB Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The Flex Benefit plan is great. I have comprehensive coverage and based on my current needs I don't have to offset the cost of coverage through payroll deductions. I like that there is a defined pension plan although the contribution rate takes a bite out of my salary - no doubt when I retire I won't mind having contributed to a pension all these years. The Employee and Family Assistance Program is another great perk - it's always there day or night and I ended up using it a couple of years ago and it was a tremendous help. My current position is non-geographic so despite the fact that I live in a rural community I have been able to progress in my career without having to relocate.

    Cons

    The only con I can honestly think of at this present moment is that salaries have been frozen for the last few years. I have continued to expand and develop in my role and even introduced some process improvements that reduced costs by thousands of dollars per year. An increase to salary, however minimal, would at least give the illusion that your contributions are valued and appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Changes should be implemented throughout the company consistently. Some areas of the company are enjoying the latest technology while others are severely hindered with antiquated resources. In the case of the latter, it is especially frustrating when the technology exists and numerous other banks and credit unions are leveraging it and it seems we have yet to even start talking about it.
