    Pros

    Great Benefits, 401K, Pension Plan, Health Insurance and Incentive Plan.

    Cons

    Staffing, they want the employees to provide the Perfect Client Experience, but this cannot happen when you have one teller attending the Drive-up window and the front. You try your best but clients get really aggravated. Branches look like a ghost town, so many teller windows and desks and 3 people working.

    Advice to Management

    Create a Support Team, that way Branch can get the necessary help when there are emergencies and vacation.


  3. Great Culture!

    Pros

    Make you a better and more balanced banker, with opportunities to truly lean the art of being a banker.

    Cons

    Playing catch-up to the rest of the industry (for larger banks) in regards to sales, which makes there some growing pains to catch-up. Ask a lot of bankers, as opposed to other larger banks, which require you to focus solely on lending and banking, nothing else.
