    Pros

    Really like the new location the BSC is for Scotiabank. A lot of opportunity to network and learn more about services Scotiabank has to offer clients. The company is very focused on excellent customer service and following bank policies.

    Cons

    The location it has moved to is in a very secluded area and there is not much places to go out and eat so you're stuck ordering or having to drive out somewhere. Not so bad though.
