    Pros

    Good pay and even better benefits. The commercial lending service is a solid product I felt good about providing to our clients.

    Cons

    Office politics create a hostile work environment. Managers often speak bad about other employees and other managers to their employees. Employees are encouraged to spy on each other and report back to managers. Yelling at employees in an open forum happened occasionally. Policies would change by verbal announcement by management then reverted six months later or even forgotten that they were changed. No written procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Show solidarity in leadership. Pull employees aside to speak to them about problems. Have clear and specific policies and procedures for employees to follow. Don't obviously show favoritism to individual employees.

    What could have been, had CSE not succumbed to buyout Millions for Senior Mgmt.

    Pros

    Relaxed, but growing and exciting deal environment with little direct non CBT training, and a huge awesome legacy from former CEO Delaney that is being destroyed by new Senior Mgmt.

    Cons

    Recently removed great benefits such as catered lunch and other Employee respectful and rewarding extras.

    Advice to Management

    go back to John D's approach of 'don't go cheap' in regards to Employees and Processes.
