    Hires from within, good incentives for reaching sales goals, upper management is very involved with employees, good benefits, a comfortable work environment.

    The pay is low in comparison to other banks.

    Consider an annual bonus for ALL employees regardless of status in b5 and raising pay to match other banking institutions in our area.

    Busey regional bank located in Central Illinois. It has that small town feeling and is a great place to work.

    I worked at First Busey

    Pros

    Busey Bank is an incredibly flexible place when it comes to working around your personal scheduled and requesting days off.

    Cons

    Busey Bank does not offer much chance for advancement or promotions. I was working there for over a year and never was offered a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Busey Bank was an enjoyable experience for me because it allowed me to work around my class schedule, but I would have liked to been offered a job after college.

    Pros

    -Talented people in the investment arena
    -Learn a lot of transferable business skills
    -Resume builder
    -Can lead to full-time offer
    -Good networking opportunities

    Cons

    -Pay is lower
    -Sometimes work is not challenging (menial tasks)
    -Work to do during the day is sometimes limited
    -Employee time efficiency could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow interns and students to work in various departments of Busey (rotational program?). This includes loans, investments, and retail. It would help them see what their interests are if they intend on continuing a career with banking.
