    I worked at Scotiabank full-time

    Pros

    Progressive, good support from Management

    Cons

    Big bank with long term goals, short term development (career development) and $$ to pay for educational programs are difficult to obtain and require approval from higher up that has no direct interaction with the employee, all based on budget.

    Advice to Management

    Help your colleagues through change management by offering info sessions and employee career development reviews should be held semi-annual vs. annual reviews as performance reviews are done annually, but the interest of career advancement may occur prior to that.
