    Pros

    The company as a whole is very employee focused. They care about their employees and their community.

    Cons

    Some managers do not follow the corporate approach to being employee focused. Several managers appear to be in it for themselves and to build their own "empires" without consideration of existing employees. My interactions with IT were especially that way. Seems the head of IT was very self focused and thus his staff's hands were tied by his rules when it came to meeting our needs.

    Advice to Management

    CEO is awesome but needs to look closely at some of the senior management team.

    Pros

    They generally expect reasonable working hours of close to 40 hrs/wk
    It is a company that offers a friendly place to work.

    Cons

    It is pretty toxic when things turn against you. Management points their fingers and within a day or 2 you are gone. Seen it happen to 5 people in a 2 yr period who were good people/employees.
    You need to be very careful.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to own theirown mistakes.

    Pros

    CoBiz is a great place to work in most regards considering that it is still a corporate job. They treat employees fairly and offer many perks.

    Cons

    It can be difficult to feel appreciated in an environment where there are so many employees and much of the work is repetitive in nature.

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work. Overall satisfaction at CoBiz is high considering the other banking positions I have held. Thanks.

  7. An Okay place to start your career.

    Pros

    Small company, you have a lot of room to learn many new skills.

    Cons

    It is tough to get promoted, and there is not a room for career movement.

    Advice to Management

    Give people more job transfer opportunities, or job exchange. Give someone the opportunity to work in IT for the week, or learn to be a loan officer.
