    Good first job experience

    Client Champion One (Former Employee)
    Green Bay, WI

    ProsThe 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.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
