    I have been working at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work culture, diversity, team effort as opposed to all individual targets, focuses on client relationships not just sales primarily. Benefits are standard, bonuses good and profit sharing also an option.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities unless willing to relocate. Mostly french, in Quebec but growing in the rest of Canada. Training could have been better. 3 month training period but mostly knowledge rather than hands on experience.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, rather than the bank. Employee retention is low, focus on making staff happy and new clients will come. If your staff are happy, they will work well.

    Pros

    Work from home office amazing vacation policy get to build strong relationships with FA's, all the staff benefits banking health insurance...

    Cons

    Very little training in beginning, volume expectations, long hours working evenings and weekends , average 10 to11 hours per day plus during the week . Very low compensation for the effort put into it.if you want work life balance this is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Give better incentives to employees to improve attrition, positive feedback coaching is nice however .... with huge over exuberant wage gap between this job level and senior executives like all big banks there is room for improving compensation to your hard working dedicated staff.

    I have been working at Banque Nationale du Canada/National Bank of Canada full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    National Bank is a very close knit Bank that feels like family. Many of our customers are dis satisfied with larger banks and feel that we give them more personal service. There is a great balance between work and family life. Pay, benefits, bonuses are all very good.

    Cons

    Too many changes in a short amount of time. While trying to improve technology is great, there has been considerable amount of changes in a short period of time making it hard to keep up with.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints. Management is awesome to work with.
