    An Incredible Opportunity

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsCoworkers are incredible, workplace is great, and the project you are given is interesting. Definitely a great place to work.

    ConsCan be stressful. You start off somewhat in a trial by fire. At least at the start, they expect you to be able to hit the ground running. If you can keep up, you'll do great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that your incoming staff is already overwhelmed. Try to ease them in appropriately. They will remember it, and be very appreciative.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Company

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Richmond, VA

    ProsGreat work environment and ability to grow as an employee

    ConsAs a call center agent, some of the demands of the job are unreasonable, especially coming from a manager who does not have to be on the phone all day, nor are they being "clocked" like us regular employees.

    Great Company

    Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsEmployee recognition is great. I am always being recognized, awarded or invited to recognition breakfasts and luncheons. The moral is awesome as well.

    ConsUnder staffed branches make work environment a little hostile. I do a lot of opens to close. I have very few lunch breaks.

    Good Company

    Branch Manager (Former Employee)

    Pros* Good culture, well meaning employees, work life balance. I enjoyed my time there. My supervisors were good and I appreciated the training.

    ConsRoles are very boring. traffic is slow. lack of infrastructure to support some branches, no exceptions to policy for promotion. Time in must be 1 year to move to any internal position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
