      Positive Outlook
      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Scotiabank part-time for more than a year

      Pros

      In the right branch, the team energy is really amazing & supportive. Scotiabank generally pretends to have this energy. In some branches/departments it's real. In others it's really not. Very management-dependent.

      Cons

      In the wrong branch, it can be very stressful & no support from managers who just want to climb the ranks.

      Advice to Management

      Listen to your front line staff & customers. Just because an idea looks good on paper doesn't mean it will work in reality.
