Customer Service Represenative/Greeter (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCOctober 15, 2013
Pros: good flexible working hours
Cons: nothing to note
I found it a generally well rounded cohesive place to work. I enjoyed the customer contact and new challenges that came every day. My co workers were agreeable and team players. The management for the most part was well trained and cordial. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with new mandates and courses, but kept you challenged.

Credit Risk Manager (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCAugust 25, 2013
Difficult to belong. Work with the right entourage, then you may be able to emotionally continue. A lot of favoritism, but if you like your job like as I do, should not matter.

Senior Business Consultant (Current Employee), Vancouver, BCAugust 2, 2013
Pros: deep knowledge of retail banking
Cons: long hours and working across different timezones
A typical day in office involves coordinating with Business,Offshore teams from China and India.Sometimes have to undergo requirement meetings with Brazil.

Learnt to work effectively work with global teams,understand their culture, respecting the working style and yet getting the best professional results.

Have really enhanced my management capabilities – more... as I have to undertake work across 3-4 countries,ensure functional and technical completeness of a project,manage diverse cultures.

The most hard part of my job was to create behemoth Functional specifications for a truly global product,getting the global requirements,convincing the regional sites to entail the additional cost. – less
