    Awesome place!

    Personal Banker (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsWell known, good pay, lots of growth opportunity, amazing benefits (tuition, child care, 401k match, corporate discounts for a few), competitive environment

    ConsThe job is great as long as you have a manager who isn't emotional and a drama queen- some are detrimental to their employees growth and jealousy can be apparent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReally consider if a person is a leader or just a manager when promoting- don't let people get comfortable

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great learning opportunity

    Operations Representative (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsOK pay, bank holidays, lots to learn if you are interested in finance/banking/accounting. Beautiful campus in Jacksonville, FL.

    ConsLots of overtime expected in production environments. Scheduling time off is tricky because the bank only allows a certain amount of associates off at the same time for all sites in your department. Many people put their requests in early for Mondays, Fridays, and days around holidays.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease consider a formal mentor program to help newbies who want to advance.

    Unstable

    Process Design Consultant (Former Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsI do like the experience I gained

    ConsThe instability of the jobs at this company. They constantly lay off their employees, it doesn't matter if you do a good job or not

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to identify the real contributors in the company. I experienced my peers taking credit for my work to make themselves look good and get ahead

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Many Opportunities but Quite Bureaucratic

    Project Manager (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsExcellent Work-Life Balance; Many opportunities to move around and learn

    ConsBureaucratic institutions; the bigger the company, the more bureaucratic it becomes.

    An institution in which I was allowed to learn and grow easily.

    Technology Delivery Manager (Former Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsTraining was appropriate and always on time. Benefits were exemplary.

    ConsWork/life balance was touted but not necessarily practiced. Although vacation time was freely and generously given, time to perform responsibility interfered with time needed off. Management structure is constantly changing making it hard to have the time to build proper rapport with new management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Big company to learn, too difficult to do anything due to bureaucracy

    Technical Analyst (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    Prosgood work-life balance, good benefits, relaxed dress code, flexible schedule

    Constoo much bureaucracy, low salary, job is very unstable, almost impossible to have anything done, too much change, too much focus on risk mitigation

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    i have the opportunity for exposure to lots of different technologies but the whole experiences is less than fulfilling.

    Architect (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsVacations are plentiful as well as the individual holidays and pay is not that bat too. Because I am a contractor i can only work 40 hours so my work/life balance is great.

    ConsThe culture is one that makes it okay, for those who have made it to a particular level, to run people over and treat them as poorly as desired. There are people on my team who have been "MADE" and they can do nothing wrong even when they miss deadlines. Because I am not "MADE" i am required to not miss my deadlines and my ideas, in the past, were taken from me give to the "MADE" and credited to them as their ideas. The sad part is they didn't even refute ownership. Because i know my place now I offer no ideas and just keep my head down an doffer nothing but completed work on the assigned deadline. The work is very easy if you don't try to out-think the room or think you are the smartest person in the room.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop working harder for the sake of working harder and simply work smarter! it is okay to say no but just have an option to follow up the no with.

    Loved it

    Teller (Current Employee)
    Jacksonville, FL

    ProsPay and benefits great. People great.

    ConsI wasn't very good at referrals and they are required of most jobs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCoach on referrals more

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
