    Pros

    The region I worked for in my opinion had great condition-workers and good management. Pay for my region I believe was slightly above average and training is good at this institute.

    Cons

    I feel like this company does like to promote from within but due to in my division having smaller branches the only positions that ever became available were entry jobs it was harder to move up. Incentives are not the best they could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do... I feel like you are doing a good job.

    Friendly work place and good management. Seems like a company that a person could really move forward in if they wanted.

    Cons

    I had trouble getting off a a few times, but I think that was just my branch.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the front line staff. We were able to get to know many of our frequent customers and it was great being able to build those friendships.

    Cons

    Raises were minimal and bonuses were nonexistent. Management often seemed condescending and
    rude to lower level staff.

    Advice to Management

    Management should do more to foster company morale.

  8. Sometimes frustrating and sometimes rewarding.

    Pros

    Lots of training, decent 401k plan,

    Cons

    Pay is low, not much room for advancement, not much structure and every branch does different things, nothing is done the same.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the tellers. I will never understand why a teller gets paid the least. That's sad when ebanking makes more. Tellers are the bank. No tellers, no business. Focus on what's going on in the branches you already have instead of purchasing more. I worked at a branch with a horrible manager and watched them run off 8 great employees, while HR did nothing about it and they were called several times. That person is still there and just ran another employee off. Get it together. Your loosing great lifetime workers bc nobody pays attention to the branches. They are way to worried about becoming a big bank.

    Pros

    Acquire new customers, turn non-active customers into producing customers, building a strong client base

    Cons

    No set territory so you always had to check your leads with the "keeper of the customer list". It had no confidential information which should have been easily accessible to check your leads so you did not call on existing customers as prospects. Another disadvantage was the keeper of the list did not always know how to look up customers correctly.

    Advice to Management

    You need to empower your employees so they can do their piece of the overall puzzles with less hinderence. Also, everything seemed secrectivewhich led people to lie and set other people up to take the fall and be fired when a second chance was the proper thing to do especially when I am a loyal and trustworthy person to my employer.

  11. Blind sided about company...

    Pros

    Monday thru Friday operations.

    Cons

    Lean staff and very underpaid for the work load. Benefits are not great. Pay is below compared to other banks.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more personnel to assist in providing efficient customer service and Teller transactions. This is a microwave society and custmers want quick quality service. Another headquarters need to be in Charlotte to assist the new banks that were bought. Branch managers should focus on new businesses and proper management rather than Teller transactions die to short staff.
