    Overall good place to work in a commercial banking environment.

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsI would say above avg health benefits, on-site gym at corp hq, good work-life balance. Company is still small to be nimble but big enough to make positive impact in the Chicago banking footprint. Overall nice employees to work with. Decent annual bonuses.

    ConsTop heavy organization with lots senor mgrs. Corp communications is probably the biggest cons as sr mgrs doesn't pass down goals, direction to middle and lower level analysts. I.e. the left hand doesn't talk to the right hand. Lack of remote access from home. Merit increases usually small, below industry avgs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo evaluation of senior managers, make more employees accountable for their actions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Quickly growing company that needs to collapse all the different charters and increase efficiency.

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Chicago, IL

    ProsGreat opportunities for advancement. Highly regarded company within their market. Cash rich which allows one to cater to customers better than they would be able to otherwise. Very flexible with your vacation schedules and family time. Pay is within the normal range.

    ConsThe company is very top heavy with a lot of SVP and higher employees and much fewer worker bees causing everyone to be hectic at all times. The company is very inefficient with its fifteen charters and I have yet to see a benefit to all the small banks. Their continued purchases of failed banks and cutting 80% + of their employees has caused many departments to be overworked and slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCollapse some of the charters to improve efficiency. Slow down and ensure that every department has sufficient support staff and competent management to accomplish goals.
