    I have been working at Fulton Financial full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good training for people early in their career. The employees are, for the most part, very nice. Stable jobs in an unstable employment market.

    Cons

    Pay is very low compared to industry standards. Benefits consistently are being cut. Not enough trained people in key departments. They do not promote internally, and once you are in, your pay raises are very very limited.

    Advice to Management

    Look to develop the talent that you have within instead of bringing in people from the outside and paying them more than you offer your internal candidates.

    Pros

    I love my direct manager and my staff. My manager has given me the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    Upper management is not supportive. No room for growth, stagnant atmosphere. Annual raises are pennies for those who work really hard, and there's no reward.

    Advice to Management

    Be more in tune with the "temperature" of your employees. Compensate your employees accordingly.


  3. Always looking for outside talent

    Pros

    Good benefits, friendly employees, education reimbursement

    Cons

    Very limited career advancement, management looks at outside candidates prior to internal candidates for most positions, low salaries compared to other mid-sized banks, work-life balance depends on your department

    Advice to Management

    Foster the talent you have and train to advance

  5. Senior management wants to play with the big boys, but doesn't have the vision to BE one of the big boys.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A steady paycheck, decent benefits. The amount of paid time off is above what I've had in the past.

    Cons

    Senior management does not have the vision to be one of the movers and shakers in the industry. They think that being the big fish in the little pond makes them special, but they are lost in the big pond.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic about Fulton Bank's place in the world. Mid-size banks have a place in the world and shouldn't try to compete as an equal with the big boys.
