    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Scotiabank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff rate, staff accounts, great team work environment, opportunities to learn new things, some benefits, annual bonus

    Cons

    Very little pay for such a high stress and high responsibility position. Lack of sufficient opportunities for career advancement. The department is almost always short-staffed which leads to a highly inconsistent lunch schedule and a total lack of breaks. Highly stressful training process, which felt more like a survival of the fittest challenge. Very outdated technology and problematic communication between branches makes the job even harder. Expected to work full time hours for a part time compensation and benefits. The workload has been gradually increasing, while many positions were eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting support staff positions. Be honest with your subordinates about work expectations and objectives. Strive for a long term efficiency. Give full time positions and promotions to your most loyal and performing staff members. If nothing above is done, the talent will flee.
