    I worked at Commerce Bank as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    I had become very disillusioned working in the corporate environment because oftentimes because of politics actual efforts towards meeting a organization's goals become secondary. However, working at Commerce Bank was a great environment and the team of individuals I worked with where an awesome group!

    Cons

    Sometimes the decision making process is lengthy with respect to projects and can result in lost time and money,

    I have been working at Commerce Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Community Bank, Consistent, Customer Focused, Team Oriented, Flat Hierarchy, Stable

    Cons

    Very Conservative, Slow moving, Siloed departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make benefits/salary more competitive to the job title at the industry level, not just geographical location. Try bonus/incentive programs in more than sales focused areas. It seems like the bank is always 5-10 years, if not more, behind technology and best practices. It would be nice to be a little closer to the industry.

    I have been working at Commerce Bank

    Pros

    I did not realize how truly dysfunctional my previous employer was until I came to Commerce and saw the complete opposite end of the spectrum. I'm a recent hire, in the interview process I spoke with 5 different people at different management levels. The overriding message I got was that people really like to work here. Now that I've been working at Commerce for a few months, I get it. At my old company there was a lot of lip service given to respect and dignity of employees but that was it. Commerce on the other hand, does it instead of just talking about it all the time. Management treats employees well, employees treat each other with respect, and there's a true sense that we're all working toward the same goals. There's also a refreshing focus on ethical values. I feel that regardless of level, every employee is made to feel as though they have a voice. No company is perfect but Commerce is really a great place to work.

    Cons

    Base pay is a little below market value. There is bonus opportunity to supplement base pay however. For me the work environment and work/life balance afforded by my position outweigh the higher pay somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commerce has great employees because they are treated with respect and dignity and feel as though their voices are heard. Don't lose this focus.
