    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time

    Pros

    People are nice, but still old school

    Cons

    Bringing in a lot of outside people, so opportunities for current employees are very little. In fact, often times external candidates are preferred.
    There is so much change it's hard to know if your job is safe.
    Everyone works crazy hours. Especially for Management + levels.
