Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Vaughan, ON10 November 2018
Scotiabank is a great company to work for however the job culture has been on the decline. Unfortunately with the changing market, there is a lot more competition with the need to be extremely sales focused.

Great coworkers below average pay
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON9 November 2018
I was fortunate to have a great team and great co workers. Unfortunate that bonuses and raise declined every year and management isn't willing to fight for us. On the HR site it shows what you make vs. what the market average is and what you make is significantly lower and told by management that you will never reach the market average.

Lack of consistency and support
RBO (Former Employee) –  Scarborough7 November 2018
Management do not provide the tools to be successful. Leadership expects staff to demonstrate an "above and beyond" attitude despite the known favouritism. People promoted to higher roles are pre-selected friends. Scotiabank is the lowest paying of the 5 big banks and benefits are mediocre. The customer experience takes priority over the employee experience. Lack of support from the leadership.
Pros
no fees on bank accounts
Cons
stressful work environment as a result of high volumes

Great place to work to gain industry knowledge on a large scale. Opportunities are there only for those who seek them out, and can take action to realize their goal. Management allows for an open discussion to help with future career goals and aspirations.
