    I worked at Beal Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people there were very nice. Starting pay was decent. Work was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Senior management was not friendly or approachable. I never saw them smile. My department had a toxic environment due to it's management. Good work was unappreciated and personal initiative was stifled. Made very few mistakes, but couldn't take care of the smallest thing without unwarranted criticism. Raises are small.

    Advice to Management

    Replace managers who mistreat employees.

    Pros

    A lot of free time and a no pressure sales environment. Retention bonuses. Limited product line making it easy to stay on top of things and a good corporate strategy solidifying job security.... A lot of free time to read and peruse the Internet.

    Cons

    Small staff in branches, usually 4 people. One or two branches per market and banks are only in medium to large metro areas leaving little room for promotion and or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Have a management trainee program even if it means relocation after.

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

    Pros

    My co-workers were wonderful. Everyone put their hand in the pile to get the job done and helped each other. My managers were also very helpful and aggressive in helping you be better at your job. It was rare that I had to work overtime.

    Cons

    1. Job stability is non-existent. Over half of my department was laid off within a year of being hired. Unless you very successful in getting approved deals, keep your resume current. Lack of structure, performance evaluation was not clear, I never knew where I stood.

    Advice to Management

    n/a

    I have been working at Beal Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great learning experience - excellent during times of market stress - lot's of opportunities. Solid work/life balance most of the time.

    Cons

    Low compensation versus industry norms. Number of employees fluctuates greatly depending on market conditions - poor job security. Office politics - upper management definitely picks favorites.

    I have been working at Beal Bank full-time

    Pros

    Small so you can learn more and ask questions. Good for learning about the markets.

    Cons

    Small also makes it difficult to move up or to different departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep and open ear and continue to work with HR to make Beal a good company to work with.

    I worked at Beal Bank part-time

    Pros

    Professional looking from the outside and only from the outside

    Cons

    Violations galore which are hidden, poor management, good ole boy and rewards not based on individual merit. I would and did run! Pay is not where it should be and just not worth the risks and worry involved. At this rate, company will fold. Investors beware.

    Advice to Management

    Better keep a keener eye and the word is already out that this is not a good place to work, which will keep your turnover high. Only certain people are rewarded, those that help cover things up. Others are clueless. CEO must be oblivious or a big instigator part of the problem.
