    Pros

    Great place to work. Everyone absolutely loves being a part of this organization. Really a happy place.

    Cons

    I don't feel like they pay well enough for some of their more talented and knowledgeable people. Retaining top talent takes some money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize roadblocks and promote your hard working individuals. Challenge every department and cross train employees more so they can be self reliant

    I worked at City Holding

    Pros

    Paycheck. The job provides a paycheck, and sometimes the work is interesting. The people who work there are a nice group, but if you are really driven to advance your career, learn and get better at your craft (be it customer service, marketing, finance), this is NOT the place.

    Cons

    Working at City National, every one seems to have a job, as opposed to a career. And it shows in the amount of effort people make, the high turnover, and frankly, the morale. Financially, the Las Vegas market is not doing well, so don't expect bonuses, and I believe the last round of raises was 2% on average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward people for doing things the right way, and stop acting like you are doing people a favor since you didn't lay them off. Give your people opportunities, because they will get them one way or another, it just means they'll leave, and the institutional knowledge they've accumulated will go with them.

    I have been working at City Holding

    Pros

    The downtown location is great if you take public transportation because the company will subsidize it. There are tons of restaurants and decent bars within walking distance. It's located in the heart of the Financial District so on the streets you walk amongst other professionals and maybe the occasional bums but that is rare.

    The overall morale is high and the people here are generally happy. I sense a lot of company pride and spirit. Also, there is no denying that we have very intelligent colleagues. They have years and years of experience to back it up but there are no egos here. In fact, the camaraderie amongst the colleagues is really good and this is at all levels of the bank. Now, that's saying something!

    Cons

    As with any mid-sized and large companies, there is always the proverbial political red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to second guess senior level managers as they are not all as competent as they seem. There's an enormous talent pool but unfortunately, a few of the bad ones are starting to make some splashes.

    I worked at City Holding

    Pros

    It was a job and it paid the bills. Some nice perks with health insurance and other paid benefits. 401k was good.

    Cons

    many of the people are idiots. treat employees badly. Almost no raises. Expect you to always do more than you can.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take care of your employees and work on employee turnover. Care more about the customer so that turnover is not bad there either.
