    Former Employee - Client Champion One in Green Bay, WI

    I worked at FirstMerit part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The personalities of the diverse staff is one of the greatest unadvertised pros to working for the company.
    My original managers were very hands on and interested in helping me with my development in the banking industry.

    Cons

    Interest from corporate office in the development of its young, branch staff employees was very minimal
    Bank did a very poor job at recruiting high quality, strong character employees. Often surrounded by team members who were only interested in collecting a paycheck and who struggled to separate work and personal lives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave the corporate headquarters on a regular basis so you can experience and full realize the true pulse and atmosphere of your company.

    Pros

    Smaller bank know the people you are working with and get to know backroom. Great employees

    Cons

    Decision making can be painfully slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline operations and have consistant procedures. Timely updates of changes to all staff. Departments can become islands need to work together and update each other.
