    Great Opportunities

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    ProsCompany promotes movement to enhance experience, also provides great benefits.

    ConsDepends from department to department. There is no consistency between departments, what is a "company policy" in one department, or Comerica in general, is not "company policy" in another department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire based on skills/qualifications, not simply seniority. Experience should be considered in lieu of education for some positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Fair, understaffed, reasonable but sometimes tough sales goals, very corporate with upper managment.

    Personal Banker II (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsWilling to hire for personality and potential, not relient on experience. Great people to work with. Friendly Clients. Small bank feel.

    ConsUpper managment very critical and not in touch with day to day. Old clients (average age seems to be over 65). Terribly outdated technology, computers take FOREVER. Limited resources compared to goals.
    Too much training and meetings oriented around pep talks and goals, not skills training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop making it such a political game. Take critisism. Currently if you say anything "Everything is perfect, rainbows and sunshine" They will take it as an insult and you wont last long.
    Update technology! Even the senior citizens think things move slow here!

    ProsSales goals are realistic
    MInimal Micromanagement

    Politics
    Pay structure is poor and bonuses are very low
    No growth and no advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to improve on management

    Safe but Stale Bank

    Assistant Banking Center Manager (Former Employee)
    San Jose, CA

    ProsCustomer base is loyal and overall enjoyable. It has a small bank feel to it and you can really build relationships with co-workers and customers.
    There is an emphasis on sales, but the goals are very manageable. For the most part, you can excel as long as you are motivated and consistent (as with a majority of sales positions).
    Relative to other banks, base pay is also above average, however it is harder to increase your salary via commission.

    ConsIt is too safe and stale of an organization for me. As you work your way up in management you will begin to inherit many workers that have been in the same job for 20 years. It is full of very nice people, however very mediocre professionally and can even be very immature. There were times when you take a step back and realize there are a dozen 40+ employees acting as if this was the bank version of "Mean Girls" where both men and women play.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is really no substantial difference between those that excel and those who don't at Comerica. I was able to move up, however you have to be in a very specific position to do so. Most of the time, the people above you are 20 year dead weight and there is nowhere to go up, you have to go out of the company to move your career along.
    Also, move into the 20th

    Over all my experience was good.

    Account Reconcilement Processing Clerk (Former Employee)
    Livonia, MI

    ProsComerica Bank encourages their employees to work as a team. They offer educational programs to better your self both personally and improving your skills at work. The benefits are wonderful.

    ConsOne con at Comerica is low morale and the management is always wondering why and how to improve the morale problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be managers of departments would learn about how the work in their department is done. Possibly sitting with some of the employees and get a full understanding of how the work in their department is processed.

    Ok place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork life balance is good. Able to work from home as needed.

    ConsNot a lot of advancement available depending on the department you are working in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow others in group the opportunity for growth instead of over utilizing others on team. G

    Great learning opportunity and many different options for advancement

    Customer Service Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsThere are many different departments and job functions offered in this company. Many employee's I've worked with have worked with the bank on average I'd say of at least 15 years... Lots of seniority within the company, which says a lot. Paid holidays and PTO are great benefits. Company matches your 401k, good benefits, and also able to purchase/sell PTO.

    ConsBehind on technology and services. Work place interior and exterior designs are very out dated at the Banking Centers. HR could be more involved with employees to help them advance and find the best career path within the company. Processes could be improved for better efficiency. At banking centers, high pressure to exceed unrealistic sales goals, while staff is being cut and not replenished. Customer service workers are underpaid, they are the face of the company and drive the company's revenue. Limited to the company's footprint states, MI, TX, CA, AZ, FL for job opportunities. Do not offer internships.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBig separation between upper management and the "worker bees". I've felt that many upper management employees do not have a strong idea of what lower ranked employees do every day. Makes you feel under appreciated. Advice: really take the time to talk to staff, understand processes, and learn the job functions around you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
