    Pros

    Work-life balance is acceptable, though I have had better in private industry. Knowing that the work that you are doing is performing a social good.

    Cons

    Nothing ever seems to get done. Endless meetings on trivial things that a decent executive or manager could decide on in 5 minutes takes twenty staff 2 hours to get a draft document out.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved in the branch or business. Communicate to staff. Make a decision. Do something other than relationship manager at your level and above.
