    Retail Personal Banker

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsHigher than average salary. Good benefits. Focus is on small business clients. More flexibility. A lot of outbound sales activities - canvassing.

    ConsShitty systems - very hard to accomplish simple tasks - makes job very complicated. Extremely high goals. Managers have sales goals too. All banking centers are short staffed, which putts a lot of pressure on other colleagues. Products are worse and more expensive than average. No brand recognition in CA. Hard to advance in career.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove systems for clients and employees.

    Credit Specialist

    Credit Specialist (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsNot a micro-managed position
    Great work-life balance
    Great people and very professional coworkers
    Friendly upper management

    ConsNo career advancement
    Negative views toward promoting from within company
    Low pay for position and very high expectation
    Job title only unique to this company may not resonate with other companies
    Lack of new software applications (mainframes) and technology not for high-tech people
    Manual approaches to every daily task no simplified workflow tools

    Advice to Senior ManagementRestructure each department with realistic/standard job titles. Require educational standards higher that high school diploma based on the expectations of this position (e.g. Bachelor degree). Increase the pay to reflect current job market and actually become competitive with other companies in this industry.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Conservative values keep this bank grounded but also make changes difficult

    Vice President (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsComerica is a great place to start a career and one of the only banks that has a credit training program. Many of the employees have been at the bank for many years and that is invaluable from a training and transfer of knowledge standpoint.

    ConsThe conservative culture has kept this company in business, but it also limits growth. The conservative nature also limits the ability of young talent to be noticied due to the layers of management. This has driven away countless young ambitious individuals that get fed up with not having their voices heard or their talent overlooked.

    no room for growth

    Customer Service Representative I (Current Employee)
    Huntington Beach, CA

    Prosflexible shifts (if the branch is fully staffed), nice benefits and paid holidays even for part time employees

    ConsHIGH sales goals- Comerica needs to expand in order to reach sales goals. Comerica thinks its on the same playing field as Chase, Wells Fargo and Citibank.

    Advice to Senior Managementpromote from within. Stop trying to hire another "experienced" outside candidates.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent Bank to work for!

    Senior Vice President Retail Banking (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsManagement was very fair and opportunities were endless. Pay was commensurate with other banks with like positions. Training was very detailed and depending upon the position, you were set-up with a "buddy mentor."

    ConsAt times, goals did not properly manage up with the community that branch location was in, but senior management would work with you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let down on the service levels as that is what makes Comerica so great!

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