    Pros

    Entrepreneurial atmosphere, strong management team that knows how to let people do their thing, good comp and benefits though benefits declined a bit after PWB merger. Still acts and feels like a small company even though it is a $15B bank now.

    Cons

    Burdens of being a federally regulated financial institution are annoying and can get in the way of doing good work, but it is not much of a detractor. Could use some formal training resources.
