Good work life balance. Great parties but slow systems. Hesitant to let people work from home, but covid has changed that. Flat organisational structure no room to grow, but if you want stability you will get it here. Good bonuses too.

Great organization if you are looking to come in at an entry level role and willing to learn new skills. Lots of growth opportunities, with the introduction of multiple products. Overall good culture.

The company itself is very progressive with technology and changes. Depending on which office you interview for, local management is very old school. BC and AB management is very conservative and don't embrace new ideas and change.

There were many opportunities to learn and experience tasks. Extremely big focus on equity ratio made people have to work harder than what may be normally expected.
Pros
Growing institution
Cons
Too many tasks heaped on people made the workload draining.

EQB is a workplace that feels like a family. Everyone knows each other and everyone care about each other about both their jobs and their casual life.

So so company. Micro management. Recent changes may have improved this though with addition of new products. However I think the old management is still there. I may have a chip on my shoulder since they let me go with no reason after a good annual review.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
Lower than undustry salary

The company itself is great to work with and there is no micro management although the role itself is very stressful and work load is overwhelming and not spread evenly amongst staff members. If you're shown to handle a lot on your plate they take advantage rather than help to remove work load. Management can also be selfish and restrict you from moving up if you're essential to the team. It sucks because the company itself is great, it just depends on who your manager is.

Enjoyed learning about mortgages and the B-lending industry in financial services. Management is overall good, but depends on your own department. Workplace culture is quite relaxed and fun, but hard work is required at times.

Just another bank job. No different than other banks. Smaller and a bit more agile. It is next to the subway stop but in the middle of the town. The building is ok

Highly recommended leadership courses.
Working at Equitable Bank there is a lack of management. There isn't a fair workload. VP needs to be more knowledgeable about the staff.

There is a lack of communication with staff. There is no set expectations and a lack of coaching.
Pros
Friendly staff
Cons
long hours

Equitable was in no place the company I should have wound up at, for for a company for which I was in no way intended, I couldn't have hoped for a more supportive and positive environment.

Equitable's bank culture and workplace environment surely are their strengths. They are a family oriented company that really understands your needs if you have to attend to family emergencies.
The workplace environment is fun and the managers make you feel at home. Their doors are always opened and they are always available for your. We have a lot of team building events and great parties!

On the other hand, the work load is pretty heavy and can be overwhelming at some times while the salary is on the lowest side. They rarely, if ever, approve overtime and, since you work very independently, managers do not seem to know or care if you are overloaded with things to do.
Pros
Fun work environment, benefits package, company culture.
Cons
Salary. Work load.
