    Pros

    One gains valuable experience if they're employed in the banking division. The other divisions (credit union, money transmitters division) are dead ends.
    Retirement benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive.
    If you're not employed in the banking section, this is a dead end job.
