    Pros

    Great culture without a lot of toxic politics. Employees are well respected and tons of folks actually go home at 5:00, which is unheard of nowadays.

    Cons

    The company refuses to invest in technology and eCommerce. Very old-fashion business model that relies mostly on person-to-person selling. This is fine for the investment banking and commercial banks, but that's not how retail bank works anymore. Also does not advertise much nor invest in branding.

    Advice to Management

    Please take the time to study the competition and how they constantly adapt to emerging technologies and changing client behaviors. Also, please invest a bit on brand-building.

    Pros

    Great benefits, small bank but big enough to be credible and resourceful. Great upper management, and great growth opportunities. Also if you live in an area where corporate headquarters are, there are even more job opportunities.

    Cons

    Kind of a pro and a con, but most if not all tellers receive cash bonuses as a tip for sales referrals, which can be good or bad for some people. Also very cross selling driven, but what bank isn't now a days.

    Advice to Management

    I haven't worked there in 2 years, but possibly more training in cross selling products might be more beneficial to the branch staff.


  11. There are plenty of job opportunities within the company with its acquisitions and merger.

    Pros

    Excellent atmosphere to work with and employees always provided utmost respect and services to fellow employees.

    Cons

    The downsizing parts of course but it's the nature of the business to make the company most profitable for shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management continuously communicated with employees the upcoming business movements good or bad and reminded to provide excellent goods and services to customers.
