    Pros

    work life balance and compensation.

    Cons

    not inclusive, unprofessional, immature senior management,

    Advice to Management

    Know the position you want to fill and understand the responsibilities, before hiring a professional for the position. One cannot hire a Chef to build a house, an executive to distribute mail or vice versa. Trust professionals to do their job.

    Make a new hire feel part of the organisation. Don't hire pawns to show the company's contributions to diversity. Do it only once management truly cares and fully understands the meaning of diversity and inclusiveness.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Loved the customers... truly miss them. Not many pros other then great customers that are getting ripped off with fees.

    Cons

    Scotiabank pretends to care about the customer.... They only care about the bottom line. They treat staff like slaves and have pushed out most of the more experienced staff hiring young kids and call them advisors. I get better advice from my garbage man. They have taken away the work life balance and make advisors work 80% of the extended hours shifts. I left Scotia to go to a company that actually treats staff and customers amazing. They really need a new CEO and not one the snipes out all his competition and squeezes all employees to fatten up his wallet.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to treating staff like people... they will work harder. Stop increasing goals by 40% year over year. Really create a work life balance and pay people more for the hard work they do!!!

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of. Colleagues at same level were easy to get along with.

    Cons

    There is no such thing as work life balance despite the fact they preach it. Rolling of the eyes if you need to take time off and lectured if you leave before 6pm. Don't support you if you become ill. And management is a joke. Promotions are rarely based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink management choices. Actually show you care for your employees. Practice what you preach such as work life balance and illness support (mental health).
