    Pros

    If you like productions support and drain away your career, then this is your jam.

    Cons

    The environment is nowhere even near other companies. Discourage learning and new technologies. Zero job security and downsizing is a common event at Scotia.

    Pay your employees more and try to listen to their concerns
