    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Close knit, comforting and contentment. Never have I worked for a company that cares for you as much as Coast. The ability to advance is totally based on how much you apply yourself and drive yourself to succeed. I read through some of these comments and some make absolutely no sense. I've been here more than 10 years and have had the offers to move companies for more money, but Coast makes it so Money isn't the...

    Cons

    Not really a con. We are busy, people that is a good thing. Imagine if you weren't busy?

    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I have worked at CCS for 5 years now, in 3 different roles. The support I’ve received from different departments in my career growth has been greatly appreciated. I am proud to be a part of a growing, hardworking and successful EPMO team. A team with strong leadership, who supports staff and always has their back, to supportive and fun peers which I enjoy working with on a daily basis. I respect EPMO management's style...

    Cons

    Overall benefits - described as flexible, which yes there are choices you can make on coverage, however it is complicated and even the basic coverage cost the employee money Parking - parking is at a premium, this isn't a reflection on Coast, it's just something to be aware of, parking is limited in the area, no issues for those who can transit, as our office location is very convenient

    Advice to Management

    In regards to the overall CCS management teams, i'm excited for 2019, continue to stay aligned with each other and focus on the priories set up by our CEO and executive team. EPMO Management: I wouldn't ask you to change anything, continue to hold us accountable, push us out of our comfort zone, and support us, having our back means more than you know. We have such a great team right now, we've grown a lot, and we...

      Pros

      Very positive and inclusive work environment. Excellent salary ranges and annual bonus structure program. Great feedback and working relationships with the management team. Open and transparent processes. Encouragement for personal and professional growth. Plenty of opportunities to advance your career.

      Cons

      A little crowded on some of the workspaces, however this being said they are working on re-organizing the workplace.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for your transparency. I truly enjoy the time the directors and above take with the staff to update them on initiatives and just the 1:1 time that we get. Communication is always key and from my personal experience there is a great 2 way communication channel being implemented, which enables the employees to feel empowered and inspired. Thank you!

      Cons

      Not many, but as an IT person for operation, I'd say the workload is increasingly expanding, and this can be worse when all new projects are complete and in production. IT leadership needs to balance the priority of new projects and daily operations. The incident, which Vancity experienced in Oct 2018, i.e. its whole system was down for 4+ days, should be a good lesson to remind us how critical operations should be for...

      Advice to Management

      Need more attention to IT operations, establish some hybrid R&D teams to create some best practices to improve our operation efficiency and productivity so we are scalable in both capacity and capability for future workload. Two other important thing is 1. prevent excessive bureaucracy as CCS grows in scale. 2. our compensation package is matching market but is behind some heavy-weight companies, like Amazon/Facebook...
