It's a big bank, typical day at work is expected to be very busy. It is a very political work place, expect to spend time to put up a good show to meet the demand from the management.
Staff in IT are subjected to a mandatory 40 hours of training each year on a vast selection of in house training courses and very few are turn out to be of much of a use to day to day work.
Had a new VP came from Royal Bank last year and a lot of hard working people were not even given the basic cost of living adjustment due to his "new policy" handed down to the managers. It looks like not giving a salary increase is the norm.
We have endless repeating system problems to look after on a day to day basis, it's best if you need training on trouble shooting system problems. Lots of seniors have been working there for many years and they certainly have not a chance to learn anything outside of the bank, you have lots of chances to see them doing things other companies would advise against.
On call pay is a joke and it's absolutely no worth the effort.
A typical day at work is good if you can work like a robot.
You have a job in a big bank
Very political, not really a pay for talented people place.
