    Pros

    Great Culture. I loved working with ATB. Great coworkers and a very positive environment. Dave Mowat is the BEST

    Cons

    Very less pay. NO scope of growing even if you have related education and/or background. I completed the degree in finance with two dean's list awards. I was also pursuing CFA. I had great working and performance record in ATB... Still, it was so hard to even get to interviews.

    The flexibility between home and work life is wonderful and there is encouragement to advance in a your career with ATB.

    While working part time is great it is sometimes difficult to make a seamless working relationship among co-workers. As work expectations and communication breakdown sometimes happen.

    Pros

    ATB has such a great vision and isn't afraid to break new ground by doing things other banks wouldn't do and thinking by 10x and not just incrementally. Their workplace 2.0 and benefit plans are first class and also they way they value both their employees and their customers makes me proud to work here and be part of the future of banking

    Cons

    So many people love working here there is a long tenure in many positions that it can sometimes limit opportunities to move to different positions

    Stay focused on bringing the customer experience to a consistently exceptional level

    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.
