    Personal Banker (Former Employee) Lansing, MI

    ProsThey have very good benefits. The pay is avg and if you need time off, it's available

    ConsIf you're willing to put forth 110% effort, many promotions are available. It is the manager and yourself responsible for your training. Use appropriate channels if your not being trained.

    Advice to Senior ManagementJust ensure that every branch is covered so they don't get behind. Personell should have a file of applicants they could hire for another branch but the employee wants to work at a specific branch closer to home.

    Great teams! Mediocre Management.

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Wilmington, DE

    ProsGreat place to work. Lots of flexibility and friendly work environment. Free covered parking. Onsite convenience store, showers, and banking center.

    ConsThe leadership team does not understand some parts of the business, so the strategy does not make sense and leads to unnessary work that does nothing to drive the business. Does not promote minorities as quickly as other, so many of them leave for opportunities elsewhere.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your foot soldiers or risk losing the war.

    Work review

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsQualified leadership, very low risk appetite, flexible working conditions, relatively good compensation package. Lots of accountability for managment of funds, schedule, and resources. Very good company to work for if you are female or a protected minority.

    ConsNot much consistency between appointing people to backfill vacancies and posting these positions. Very difficult to navigate the political structure of the organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
