    Pros

    compensation package, values, ability to grow, decision making ability at branch level, easy access to senior staff to share ideas.

    Cons

    salary is not comparable for the industry, must self train a lot to grow, challenges with work life balance, high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    I would work to raise salaries to retain quality employees, provide training to more senior managers who want to advance, add staff to key departments so that less work is handed down to branches and those departments are less o overwhelmed. .

  2. Mediocre

    Pros

    Compensation & Benefits, Training, Coworkers, Promotions

    Cons

    Banking Hours (10am - 6pm) - Work-Life Balance, Work Load, Technology

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is good; I'm satisfied with their efforts and encouragement with employees. They recently merged with another bank which made things a little rough at first, but things are getting better. Work load can be overwhelming especially if there's not enough staff to help out. A lot is expected from management teams in the individual branches, but not all branches are the same - Goals should be refined by each specific branch. Overall a good company to work for. Go local, go community banks!

  3. Great Culture and a confused outlook for the future

    Pros

    They have a great community bank feel and lots of personal empowerment to help customers. Great work schedule as well. Not open saturdays.

    Cons

    They continue to grow and are slowly losing the feel of a community bank. constant restructuring causes a lot of confusion. They claim to want to maintain a small bank culture but seem to be only interested in growth by acquisition.

    Pros

    I feel lucky to work for a strong bank here especially when many other banks are struggling. The bank's management and board care about the employees. The bank and staff member are heavily involved in the community.

    Cons

    "More with less"; The bank is small and many employees are stretched.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the bank going in the right direction.

    Pros

    It is a small community based bank that supports their employees. Bank of Marin recognizes every employee as team player. The company feels like an extended family.

    Cons

    None...right at this moment. I am less than a year working at Bank of Marin.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your are doing.

    Pros

    If you desperately need a job and live in Marin County...

    Cons

    Lack of communication and support, contradictory information, different rules for different folks...I worked there for 1 1/2 years without getting a review. I was written up for "not doing" things I was never told to do/trained to do/even knew existed. They play favorites, the benefits are outrageously expensive if you have a spouse/dependents. The service they provide to customers is inadequate due to staff limitations, lazy people in support positions, and a lousy computer system. They are cheap, even when making tons of money. (The sales reps were put on "commission only." In 20 years in banking I've never seen that! They bought paper for the ATM without the bank logo or even name on it-- so where did this receipt come from?)

    Advice to Management

    Get organized and fair. Train people adequately. Have workable rules, not moving targets.
