    I have been working at Wintrust Financial full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Salary below market. Disconnect with senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide 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.

    I have been working at Wintrust Financial

    Pros

    Wintrust professionals are up to bar among their peers and always look out for the customer, sometimes even more than the company.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunities; poor communication; very traditional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Young professionals need more incentive to stay at the company.

    Pros

    Community driven and concious with lots of opportunity to advance and educate yourself and peers. Open work environment with management available to bounce ideas off of and offer advice.

    Cons

    Less competitive salary structure with no stock option opportunities for incentive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide opportunities for employees to receive options as an incentive/bonus and other stock rewards besides an employee stock purchasing plan.
