    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people, stability, decent benefits, and is a large organization so there's lots of mobility and growth. Generally, a relaxed work culture.

    Cons

    Poor senior management leadership, sometimes projects and initiatives feel like they are spinning their wheels and are poorly managed leading to inefficiency and waste. Not a good environment if you want to challenge the status quo or get things done quickly. Internal politics creates highly dysfunctional operating structure.

    Advice to Management

    Approach growth with a longer term mentality . Be more bold, otherwise risk always being behind the other large Canadian banks (TD, RBC).

    Pros

    Great people to work with, I have learned a lot and I genuinely enjoy coming to work every day

    Depending on the department, economic outlook and due to structural rigidity, there is sometimes not a ton of opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing, just be sure to recognize and promote potential.

    I have been working at Scotiabank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work Load is optimal I hope like mine other managers and their bosses are reasonably cool as well If you are smart you will get the path for your growth without much struggle Use industry best practice and up to date tools Pay optimally more than what you expect from #3 rank bank on bay street - better than CIBC and TD, (PS: CIBC is worst in all sense)

    Cons

    No freebies! Watch late comers and lazy people with zoom and very shrewd in telling you that you are not following work ethic - so beware if you are lazy and better settle for less money somewhere else Healthy competition with in teams, average guys will not get opportunity to grow easily just because their hire above average talent by paying more and then they have to put all effort to get ahead of all Imbalance...

    Advice to Management

    Run some skill matrix analysis and use your talent on rotational roles. Watch the rejections more closely than the selections and ask them for reviews. You are doing good already but employee engagement for strategic goals is way to low. Avoid external consultants for advise and use internal candidates for better utilization of salary you pay and experience they have gained while working for you. our employees know...

    I worked at Scotiabank for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was fortunate to have my contract renewed continuously for 3.5 years (every 6 months) My managers were very supportive and I enjoyed my work there.

    Cons

    I became very ill in May 2015 and was in ICU for a month then in hospital rehab for another month. When I was able to come back to work they said there were budget cuts and terminated my contract. If I was fulltime I would have had more job security but that's the risk you take!! I then applied for other jobs at Scotia but didn't even get called in for an interview....have now got another contract at a smaller financial...
