    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings full-time for more than 8 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

    Pros

    Good company, great benefits, great pension plan if you stay with the company long term. New retail director Chris Maze has done a great job so far. Good company morale, good flexibility. Great retail management within the Metro-Vancouver region (Dennis Kuo, Cherise Nolin, Courtney Roth to name a few) Calvin appears to be a good CEO with a promising outlook. Great VP with Lisa. Coast has done a good job at recognizing...

    Cons

    More competitive pay for Financial Planners and Mobile Mortgage teams should be evaluated as there appears to be strong enough incentive to leave Coast Capital for a position within a private firm. Higher individual compensation for these crucial roles will cost Coast more upfront, but should negate situations where skilled people leave and bring a large chunk of business with them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster individual growth within your branches. Continue to broaden investment options for members.

          I started at a very busy period. Company got recently approved to go Federal and growing very fast. Some things have not been prepared upon my start date like my equipment (laptop, phone, etc) Getting a Parking Spot takes years.
