    I have been working at First Banks full-time (more than an year)


    Relaxed atmosphere, flexible with school schedule, goals are not as harsh as other places, community based, pay is okay, and it's not all about sell, sell, and sell.


    New CEO, changing the direction of the company, wants to increases goals and quotas like the big banks without actually doing anything to make the bank a big bank, the pay does not compensate for what the change is going to do to people's jobs.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
