    I have been working at Comerica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work-life balance is promoted, you cannot take your work home with you. Personal growth and on the job training are great. Some are lucky and get a great office culture. Insurance benefits are not that expensive and are worthwhile. Free program for weight managment and mental health calls. Decent 401K plan with up to full 4% match

    Cons

    High turn over can lead to lots of over-time, management change is hard for customers to accept and some employees may struggle to adjust. If you do not succeed on your sales, you will have trouble moving up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Heavy sales pressure leads to poor customer service and stressed out employees. Goals may be too high for some.

    I have been working at Comerica full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, 401k plan, medical, dental, PTO and sick time. If you do well you get rewarded. I won a 2 night stay anywhere in the US, at participating Hyatts.

    Cons

    Comerica is a very large company, but they have very few departments in San Diego which restricts career path options if you don't want to leave San Diego.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Auburn Hills, MI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Auburn Hills, MI

    I have been working at Comerica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Good support from Manager
    2. Extremely talented team members
    3. Eager to learn new tools/technology
    4. Hard/smart work environment
    5. Since it is a bank, many holidays to enjoy only if you are full time employee.
    6. Good benefits

    Cons

    Nothing specific. Every work place has some or the other deficiency, need to learn to live with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Good benefit package. Collaborative work between divisions to get things done.

    Cons

    Promotion process is not slow and painful. It takes more than outstanding work. You also need a boss that will fight with HR to justify it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be a more transparent path for promotions.

    Pros

    Great people across the board

    Cons

    Too many fiefdoms competing for IS resources; the silos may be gone, but the picket fences are everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consolidate IS as much as possible to improve integration and velocity of projects through Project Portfolio.
