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

    Pros

    - Benefits and employee share ownership program. - You also get a lot of support and also have access to many resources. - Meeting, learning and having good conversation with clients.

    Cons

    - Working at the branch on daily basis is not ideal if you are looking for flexibility. - Can stressful role as sales targets can be aggressive. You do get paid more than other banks so it comes with the compensation package. - You can be part of a branch/team that is does not have the culture/energy you like. A lot can depend on your direct manager as some can have micro management style.
