    Pros

    At branch level, this job is fun, full of customer service, and never boring. There are always things to be done and issues to be handled. If you're opening new accounts or product referrals you get little bonuses in your paycheck which is always nice.

    Cons

    It appears the company is slowly becoming more "Big Bang" than the family owned, local bank it has always been known for.

    They care about their customers and community. Love that.

    Cons

    Leadership is not too great at acknowledging young, fresh potential. Not the easiest for young professionals.

    Pros

    Senior leadership is very receptive and proactive towards providing a great product and great work environment.

    Cons

    Still adapting towards their recent growth and the transition of becoming a multi state bank.

    Advice to Management

    Some levels of senior management need to be coached up or out to provide better support for a larger company. Some are guilty of "thinking small".


  6. Energetic, honest competent staff and management provides a healthy, work environment with reasonably good compensation.

    Pros

    New regime is very interested in moving the company forward... things were changing for the better, but I opted to leave prior to those changes being made.

    Cons

    There were challenges based on the financial crisis, which led to stress and unpleasantness... many of the employees had been entitled, but I understand that most of those people have left the company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
