    I have been working at First Busey full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company like to lend based on character rather than only credit metrics which is good for marginal credits. They truly value relationships.

    Cons

    If you do not come from the area there are no real opportunities for growth. You will not be trusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an open mind an try not to use nepotism for making decisions. There are other ways and other people who can help. There are other ways to grow the business not just cost cutting.

    I worked at First Busey

    Pros

    There is a very flat organization structure and its a small division for wealth management. This means that you get a lot of responsibilities right away.

    Cons

    Informal structure means that you do not have a defined assignment at times nor specific performance measures. Work is sometimes very meaningless and arbitrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be performance appraisals and more set work. There is no information on daily responsibilities or the impact of work done.

    No opinion of CEO
