    I worked at Coast Capital Savings full-time

    Pros

    If you are thinking of joining Coast Capital, don't wait, jump right in. Some of the best colleagues you will encounter in your career work there. The pay is above market and everyone is gone by 5:00 pm! It's a great work life balance. I worked for other financial institutions and found this one to be the best. My circumstances personally changed and I moved, which is the reason I had to leave.

    Cons

    The pace is so so, although may of the 'lifers' complain it is bust there - they have no idea how good they have it by comparison. I worked at one bank where it was expected that you would take clients out three to four nights per week and the pressure was unbearable. People were literally crying.

    Advice to Management

    try to bring more things into market - while there has been really good progress, the organization needs to catch up in several areas that I can think of for sure

    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I recently joined and have to say, what a breath of fresh air compared to other banks and financial institutions that I've worked at before. The employees are super duper helpful and friendly, supervisors approachable and friendly, and the work conditions, pay, and benefits are all beyond my expectations.

    Cons

    I really struggle to find even one, single thing that I could think of that I don't like so far. If I think of something I will change my comments here

    Advice to Management

    Really just keep on doing what you are already doing, I mean, the organization is fantastic and it seems to have very bright plans and futures

    Unfortunately you don't have offices or branches in Ontario, where my partner and I moved to! gopefully some day you do and I can come back.

    Expand to other parts of Canada so more people can get the great Coast experience and it will create more opportunities for employees to develop and get promotions.
