    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Scotiabank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Willing to promote from the Analyst level, small deal teams are great for taking on responsibility, most MDs are a pleasure to work for and take an interest in your development.

    Cons

    Investment banking group does not appear to be a priority of senior management and represents a small portion of overall bank profitability. League table performance has been lower than expected over the last several years.

    Advice to Management

    Strategy has been ill-conceived over the last half decade - not necessarily senior management's fault. Develop clear strategy and stick to it.
