    Pros

    I worked in the Madisonville Office in IT. Great benefits. Plenty of time off. Upper management are strategic thinkers. Great in-house designers, developers, and testers. Some business partners were open minded and trusted internal recommendations.

    Cons

    Limited office space and slow to upgrade hardware. Ran 99.9% on Microsoft and getting new software approval required months approvals. Mostly partnered with offshore development firms instead of domestic development talent.

    Advice to Management

    Get some Macs and know how to support them. Reevaluate salary range for job titles.

    Pros

    -Tuition Reimbursement, extremely helpful for those working right out of college. -Benefits, this seems to be important to most people. -Helpful Coworkers, always willing to help with common tasks. -Travel Reimbursement, lots of travel in first few months and a quick time frame for reimbursement.

    Cons

    -Pay, they will try to give you a far lower salary that what is considered "competitive"

    Advice to Management

    Realize the value of your employees and stop being so stingy on compensation.

    Pros

    The benefits offered to part time employees is the same as full time employees, just less vacation and sick days, but they are amazing.

    Cons

    Management turnover was high; this year alone there were 5-6 branches without a manager in my region at the same time.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be setting the example for the rest of the employees. If the manager can't be to work on time, it sets a lower standard for the rest of their employees.

    Pros

    The branches and support team are phenomenal with this bank. you learn allot about the selling process

    Cons

    HR is extremely unorganized and cause you to waste alot of unwarranted time. There are several months of trainings.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to stay on hr more and communicate more effectively and refer that information to lower management in a more timely fashion.

    Cons

    as a lead you're in charge of pretty much all the operational aspects of your branch. It's an assistant branch manager position with less pay
