    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to advance or change positions. Since there are 15 banks, if no opportunities are open at one bank, something will probably come up at another bank.

    Cons

    There seems to be some political maneuvering at headquarters--some people trying to make names for themselves without taking ownership of their actions (or lack of action).

    Advice to Management

    Before asking banks to staff themselves leaner, look at Rosemont's productivity.
