    Pros

    Good benefits and retirement plan. Open door policy and management is accessible. Great work/life balance.

    It's a place to work, not easy to advance in your career. It could take you years to receive a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize employees. Reduce favoritism

    Former Employee - Officer in Pittsford, NY

    I worked at Canandaigua National

    Pros

    The benefits and retirement are ok, probably better than average. One can luck out and get to work with some nice people. If you are a rocket scientist you will stand out which is good and bad.

    Cons

    Very old fashioned thinking. Advancement and recognition based on who you know and how well you play the game. Performance seems almost secondary. Too many lifers who have never worked any place else and want to live back in the good ol'days. Just ask they will tell you. Not a place to keep your skills up or learn new things (keep up). Leadership lacks as does support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support staff are not holier than thou. There is too much power in the hands of those that really have no good reason for being in their positions other than they have been there for 20 or 30 years. Need to fire some of those people so that others can excel. Too bad it could be a good place if not for much of management.

    I worked at Canandaigua National

    Pros

    The bank has a relaxed and open culture and people are wiling to help out. Things are done very simply and there are generally no complications. It's a very low stress environment where people are totally committed to clients and customers.

    Cons

    Because things are so simple and relaxed it is not a place to work if you are competitive or want significant growth. People there are less interested in evolving and growing and more intersted in not changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to change and listen to people who are the experts in certain fields. There are a lot of very smart people in the bank but they are not able to contribute and help push the organization forward. Give them the opportunity to grow the bank into the type of company it is capable of becoming.
