    I worked at Comerica full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The department definitely embraced the concept of work/life balance. There was an opporutnity for alternative work schedules. There was very minimial required over time. For the most part, a lot of the people in the department were easy to work with and easy to get along with.

    Cons

    The pay was low in comparison to equivalent positions at other organizations. There was also issues with career mobility. These two factors were the top reasons for why there was a lot of turnover within the department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement bonuses are some other type of appreciation for employees. Ensure that pay is comparable to equivalent positions at other organizations.

    I have been working at Comerica full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good base pay, bank hours are always a plus. Good company to learn "Banking basics." District Manager for Houston West is very personable and talks with all employees regardless of title.

    Cons

    Base upon the location you are hired, customer traffic can be very slow. If seeking a job just to have extra cash then this is ideal. A person like me who is here for career advancement, not so much. Bank system is outdated by a couple of years. Can be hard for employee to learn the system without someone with experience to help. Bank help desk, is 50/50 reliable. When I have called on certain occasions the people who work in that department are usually rude and make you feel like you are disturbing them, even though its their job. Last but not least, certain branch managers are not qualified for the job. One particular I know is lazy and could have a drinking problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Branch locations need to expand, Houston is a rapid growing city and Comerica needs to address this. Customers number one complaint is locations are not convenient.

    Pros

    Wages for contracts were good, immediate management was very competent.

    Cons

    It's a bank, they pinch pennies run old hardware/software. If you want the latest tech look elsewhere, if you want to work on your duct tape and scripting skills this is a good stop.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run a cost analysis on your infrastructure, the old stuff may be costing you more than you think.

    Pros

    They have descent pay, and the corporate standard benefits, the best thing about Comerica is the good people doing the real work. Many have been their for years and for some reason are still loyal. .

    Cons

    Management always seems to have their own agendas, they can be a bit hostile between silos, opportunity limited to political environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people and act upon their advice, they are more experienced than you in many cases.

    Pros

    Decent to good pay; good benefits; nice people

    Cons

    Too political to get any real work accomplished. Mid Level to sneior management is more concerned with building their own brand then working for their pay check and the good of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management needs to clean house and put resources in place who are going to truly accomplish meaty goals on time.
