    Excellent Benefits and Career Opportunities

    Human Resources (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsExcellent benefits, ability to work from home in some positions, 12 weeks paid maternity/paternity leave, advancement opportunities, competitive compensation, generous vacation and sick leave, back up child care program, company discounts, etc.

    ConsThe environment and culture are definitely big corporate. Sometimes you can feel like just a number. To work here you have to be very comfortable with constant change. Work/life balance is encouraged but it is still a stressful environment with an emphasis on production.

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

    Teller

    Teller (Current Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsGreat benefits, love working for the company, lots of upward movement

    ConsManagement is clicky in the banking centers. "Goals" keep rising and become unattainable, so you can feel like you're failing, even if you are doing everything right. They always have something to "coach" you on, sometimes stretching it to find something. Teller positions are going away though, my current position is being threatened to go to PT or even away completely.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe fair. AM's should NOT be best friends with a teller/banker. Favoritism is abundant.

    excellent company to be a part of

    Customer Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Brea, CA

    ProsExcellent benefits and an overall great company to work for. Although the wage rate seems to be lower than other banks, other things such as the company's culture definitely make up for it.

    ConsPromote more from within the company rather than hiring from outside the company. Nothing more is to be said in regards to the cons at this time

    Advice to Senior ManagementFrom my experience, I've had the opportunity to work with some of the greatest managers
