    I have been working at Scotiabank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I'm working at a rapid lab where we have been operating in the truest agile environment I've experienced to date. You can tell that Scotiabank has put a real emphasis on delivering functional software and has put a significant effort into delivering best in class Customer experiences.

    Cons

    Still need to work with departments that are very institutional. Legal departments are terrible for PR and customer experiences.

    Advice to Management

    Integration with legal teams should be considered.
