    Pros

    Good environment. Customer relationship is of high importance. A lot of events for the community. Very personable, CEO stays in touch with branches, visits at least once a year. Birthday cards from upper management

    Cons

    Budget cuts are easily being seen. Focus shifts every quarter. Becoming more and more sales based, similar to mainstream banks

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, it's working! By putting your employees first, you create a happy workplace.

    Pros

    Well run bank with newer locations. For the marketplace, they provide higher total compensation for surpassing goals. Well regarded on a national basis.

    Cons

    The private banking division lacks substantive product offering. We were really bankers without branches and lacked a service offering for high net worth clients or business owners. There is a paranoia across the bank that higher salaried employees are being terminated indiscriminately and replaced with lower salaried individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Build a more competitive product offering for private bankers.
