    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 efforts of employees, ensuring they have the support of management for career growth as well as rewarding employees who put in effort. Great lending benefits. Strong focus on work life balance, no unrealistic sales expectations. I have met nothing but great people in my few years here.

    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.

    I have been working at Coast Capital Savings part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fairly flexible scheduling, good pay, great people to work with. Good benefits and corporate culture. Expanding company, focused on helping their customers

    Cons

    Personally I hate sales so the role is very tiresome after 4+ years. Can be hard to move into other departments as roles rarely come up for back office

    Manager, People Solutions

    We wholly agree we are a “great company, with great people”. #smileyface We strive to provide a fun working culture for our employees that offers flexible scheduling, competitive pay and benefits and great people. And we are glad that you are a part of it! Sorry to hear sales has been so taxing on you! Being in sales is not for everyone so good to know you are exploring other opportunities within Coast Capital that are a better fit for you. We know other opportunities might not always be possible in a part time capacity, but you never know what a good career chat and some networking could result in.

    The quirkiness they pride themselves for can be really annoying and unprofessional Due to the size of the company, not much chance for career advancement Seemingly obsessed with giving things away for free when people are willing to pay Often seemed directionless
