    I worked at BankAtlantic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great place to work. I worked at the Red Road Branch and My managers and colleagues were an awesome team. It was a fast paced environment, but we all worked together to run the branch smoothly. My manager Usha was the sweetest and most down to earth women. Javier, our branch manager was also very pleasant and would brew coffee for us every morning. It felt more like coming in to work with a team then just a normal job. The company overall had a lot of incentives that made your daily job more important. you were awarded for good work and were recognized. When the company decided to sell it's branched due to the falling housing crises, they were very considerate to their employees. The employees were given a 30 day noticed and the option to continue to work until we closed or to leave and find a new job. We were also given severance packages.

    Cons

    Due to the economy, the Bank was sold and a bulk of the staff were laid-off. This would have been an awesome career if the Bank did not close.


  3. BankAtlantic needed a re-vamping as they couldn't figure out their true niche.

    I worked at BankAtlantic full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the comraderie of my peers as everyone was very supportive and helpful. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Too many changes in upper management. Never knew from month to month who you were reporting to. No raises for over 5 yrs and this was never communicated during initial interview. Bank owners knew that they were planning to sell bank and employees suffered as a result.
