Stressful environement
Financial Advisor (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 February 2018
At first this was a great place to work. But got moved around a lot between branches, with very little notice. High sales goals and pressures. Work place culture became more negative the longer I stayed, seemed like everyone was searching for a way out. Lots of micromanaging and lack of confidence in employees, felt very disposable as an employee. Work environment varied largely between branches and strongly reflected on managements goals and attitude. Extremely high turnover.
Pros
Bonus opportunities, high opportunity for advancement
Cons
Stressful, low salary, micromanagement, extensive training

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON22 February 2018
Having worked for this company for 10 years, I feel this speaks for itself on the company as a whole. Though restructures left me having to take another opportunity in order to grow in the way I felt I needed, it is a company loyal to it's employees and encourages advancement and growth if the path is right for you. Also has great employee appreciation standards.

Contractor through Tech Mahindra (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON21 February 2018
I like working here with professional co-workers and fun employees. Management has a good view of the bank future and I learn new thing everyday. The hardest part of the job, is the number of e-mails I receive on a daily basis (450 to 500) and the most enjoyable part of the job, is interacting with different areas and solving issues

insecure managers

Advisory Programmer Analyst (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON1 February 2018
Scotiabank is in re-org period. Everyday new change in the org structure now. So difficult to say anything stable. Any statement regarding Scotiabank will be changed in the next second now. Really difficult to state.

QA Test Lead / Senior Quality Assurance Tester (Former Employee) –  Scarborough, ON1 February 2018
Full-time employees and some contracted staff are wiling to provide some quality work, however, some contractors in charge of entire divisions are not.

Long ours for some projects.

Some contractors seems to focus more on their profits than delivering quality services.

Job security is very poor.
