    Pros

    This is a small bank so it is easy to speak and have visibility with senior management. However, it is not just a community bank. There are locations nationwide and clients served are also nationwide.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of opportunity for career growth within Bridge. Compared to the Bank's competition (not peer banks) compensation and 401K is under market.

    Advice to Management

    Although there are many pros to Bridge Bank, the low salaries paid to employees across the Bank results in much of the top talent leaving to other institutions.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Bridge Capital Holdings full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Bridge provides sparsely stocked kitchens and occasional access to C level executives.

    Cons

    Bridge suffers from a lack of established processes, lots of politics at all levels, unethical behavior by managers and poor underwriting standards. The division I worked in had people that were favorites of managers and were held to a double standard Promotions are based more on politics and shady business than meritocracy. Bridge does not provide adequate resources and expects originators to do a lot of paper pushing with minimal support. This created situations where I was expected to juggle a huge workload for minimal pay and lack of recognition. Avoid this Bank at all costs if you value your sanity and peace of mind. Most of the mid level management are not very friendly nor helpful in helping direct reports achieve their career goals. I have never worked at a place where people felt like they are on an island. Most people don't stay here very long because of what I have described. Other Banks provide better work environments.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people better and recognize people based on meritocracy instead of politics and favorites.
