    Pros

    Great organization, with dedicated employees. Good overall employee tenure with the company. The benefits were great. One example is the bank owned a mortgage company one of the benefits included a 1/2 percent rebate on the balance of your loan as long as you got the loan through the company and were still employed each year.

    Cons

    There are no cons to list. Great company!

    Pros

    Flexible Hours because it is in non-banking I was able to come in between 7 am and 9am . leave between 3:30 and 5pm. Benefits were good. Independent work. Management was great when you needed to leave and/or have time off.

    Cons

    My experience with Chevy Chase Bank was a great. For this position I was not able to come up with any cons. Of course pay can always be more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always remember you are successful because of your great staff. Don't ever think that you are better than anyone. Everyone and all jobs are expendable.

    Pros

    Being a regional bank you got to know your co-workers and contacts. The Chevy Chase severance package and benefits were decent

    Cons

    Capital One changed the Chevy Chase corporate culture to one where Chevy Chase employees were treated like a losing sports team

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately, creating another bank too big to fail and too big to manage seems to be the order of the day and will keep Cap One around for quite awhile.

    Pros

    The bank has great benefit package. They offer about $5000 for reimbursement for school, but it is dependent of meeting your branch goals.

    Cons

    They say your sales numbers speak for themselves yet the people who get promoted numbers are only average.

    Pros

    Good benefits, pay is slightly above or on par compared to other banks. Commission sucks now and some of the goals are outrageous.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, district executives don't care about what you have to say and some of the immediate level managers are incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It wouldnt kill you to listen to some of your underlings! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
