    Pros

    This bank is good for people looking to start in the financial services industry. Once you get some experience go and work for the other more professional banks

    Cons

    Career management is non existing. They do not reward or recognize talent. Most branch managers are extremely incompetent but have been there for decades, which exempts them from being efficient or even motivated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They promise a lot in terms of career advancement, they never deliver

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They have a good product line for their lenders.

    Cons

    Management was a joke. From their western head to the local area manager, the home financing advisor channel is the runt that Scotia keeps alive because they have to. They are a broker bank and brokers make them or break them. Had a number of deals that Scotia internally wouldn't do but if a broker brings it to Scotia they'll do it. Moreover, they pay brokers double for the same business. What a slap in the face.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to winning ideas. Realtors are everyone's bread and butter. It's time to find new ways to get business.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
