    I worked at ATB Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    ATB was a really good place to work. As a crown corporation they don't have to perform like a publicly traded bank so very few budget constraints and not a lot performance targets. Just get along with the right people and say that the CEO is brilliant whenever you get the chance and you'll do just fine.

    Cons

    Not a great place for high performance people. Very political with the number one objective of good publicity for the bank and the CEO and to not catch any negative attention that would look bad on the government. You have to drink the Chief Evangelist's Kool-Aid or your out.

    Advice to Management

    Run it more like a bank than a public relations company.

    Pros

    Good benefits, lost clients are really great and want to establish long term working relationships.

    Cons

    Over the years the company has become very aggressive over sales and management has gone to the dogs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more realistic and focus on effective problem solving! remember that yelling, screaming and, having temper tantrums don't solve anything and don't motivate anyone. Also this is a financial institution and not a high school so please act like management instead of the cast of mean girls.
