    Overall, a good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPlenty 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.

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementBefore asking banks to staff themselves leaner, look at Rosemont's productivity.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good company overall - Good benefits

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Rosemont, IL

    ProsGood benefits. Have on-site gym equipped with fitness classes for all employees free of charge. Two week vacation and unlimited sick days. Provides 401k match, medical (BCBS IL), dental and vision insurance. Discounts for AT&T, Jos A. Banks, etc.

    ConsCommunication within departments is limited. A lot of micro managing. In order to fit in you must have a traditional mindset. Not very open to new ideas. Very cut throat environment. Not a team environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to offer work/life balance. Offer remote access to all employees to allow all departments to remain functional and allow for work/life balance.

    Great overall company for commercial banking. Salary on the low side.

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsExcellent people and training. The Company is growing quickly and there is ample opportunities to learn.

    ConsSalary below market. Disconnect with senior management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide internal raises and better evaluations, especially to those with less experience and fewer years in the industry. An excellent credit training program, but since you're educating general human capital, must ensure employees are properly compensated. Otherwise they will have an incentive to move taking the education you gave them.
