    I worked at First Busey


    Busey leadership is strong, and they are always on the leading edge of new developments. The people that work there are great and there is always a positive atmosphere. Busey is involved in the various communities where their offices are located and many of their employees volunteer in community activities.


    Supervisors are not always alert to underlying causes of job performance. I think this is true of many companies.
