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


    Hires from within, good incentives for reaching sales goals, upper management is very involved with employees, good benefits, a comfortable work environment.


    The pay is low in comparison to other banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider an annual bonus for ALL employees regardless of status in b5 and raising pay to match other banking institutions in our area.
