    Pros

    decent work life balance

    Cons

    everyone says one thing, then does another, no funding for projects, constantly letting people go one quarter then hiring again the next so the bank can so profit. even tho everyone talks about agile its still basically waterfall... most employees have been there too long and feel like they know better than everyone even tho they have no industry knowledge outside of scotiabank, very dangerous to productivity and... agile transformation...
