Slow moving bank
Senior Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 March 2019
Takes way too long for decisions to be made. Just another big bank that is being cheap and not willing to invest in its people. Key decisions are made at the top of house and forced onto its employees.

Not a great place
Associate Director, Oil Trading (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB14 March 2019
Locations not located at head office, there can be significant disparity between what head office mandates are for people returning to work due to health issues and what actually occurs upon return to work.

Most staff was supportive but select few were very bad.
Pros
Some good people
Cons
Some bad people

Work Culture in Scotiabank is really good. I never felt much stress out of office hours due to the overload of work. People respect their behaviour and work style.

Great place to work - depending on your manager!
Financial Advisor (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON12 March 2019
Worked for a few different managers, some are great but some are bitter and shouldn't be there any more. One manager I had would cherry-pick leads and clients (i.e. prospective sales) and take them off 1 advisers calendar and give them to her favorites.

After staff have been there for 10+ years they have a sense of "you can't fire me" and leadership (district & regional VPs) leave them alone.
Pros
Competitive salary and decent benefits
Cons
bad attitudes by some branch managers

Amazing Place to Work if you are Eager to Learn

Work life balance and benefits are amazing

Very bi-polar atmosphere.
Mid-office management (Former Employee) –  Beaumont, AB6 March 2019
The manager was easy to work with and quick to teach. Some of the other staff were a lot of fun and had a family feel when they were working. One however set the tone of the day, bullying and abusive for the most part but management would not ratify the situation despite the complaints by the other workers as this person had seniority. Work culture definitely allowed the harassment of other employees.

Large organisation with mixed bag of talent
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON5 March 2019
Being a financial institution it's only driven by delivering results to the majority stakeholders. They keep breaking revenue records but it's never enough.

Better to be unemployed
Customer Representative (Former Employee) –  Alliston, ON5 March 2019
This company is alright, though it is Canada's 3rd largest bank. The pay is c**p. As a Customer Representative I made just above minimum wage and managed a lot of physical cash. The training is awful, it does not prepare you for the job, and Management is non-supportive.

Benefits themselves were actually pretty good. Vacation time was very basic. You can't take sick or personal days before you have been there over 3 months.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
Terrible managers
