not a equal opportunity employer for people who have epilepsy
Call Centre Representative (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON11 June 2017
my manager would not allow me to discuss how to safely deal with my epilepsy because she said it made people scared. I just wanted to make sure no one would injure themselves me or trying to help me. Unsafe environment that put my life in danger.

Productive, culturally diverse and friendly environment
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 June 2017
My environment was bright and spacious, with access to kitchenettes and common areas.
Management was helpful, friendly and supportive.
Co-workers were sociable and helpful.
Work environment was steady and busier at peak times.
Deadlines were the hardest part (usually encountered overtime monthly, quarterly and yearly)
There were perks of banking with Scotiabank, Staff social events, performance bonuses, and a shuttle service to and from Union Station.
Pros
Shuttle Service
Cons
Long Hours

Great people to work with!
Senior Manager (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 June 2017
The people make the organization! Scotiabank has amazing people under its roof. From Front-line, retail to back end IT, the employees are warm and come with so many insights and talents..working cross-functionally with many people in the organization has been a great experience.
SB's generally provides a good salary base and benefits.
Moving more towards project-based work and agile methodology, but with some old-school mentality.
The downfall for SB is its aging infrastructure and slow move to digital working practices. The other major aspect is all the recent "transformation: and downsizing of staff has left many feeling unstable and unsure of their future.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
bank transformation - less stable work environment

Senior Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 June 2017
Work environment is as expected at any large Banking institution. Working hours can be extensive but really depends on the group that you're working in and how your boss decides to run said group.

No room for growth
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 May 2017
Poorly managed company. Salary is much less than the industry average. Inexperienced and immature management. Change in the industry led to change in the job, however, poorly executed and planning.
