    Ok

    Personal Banker (Current Employee) Austin, TX

    ProsBCM and ABCM are very accomodating and are willing to coach you. Great place to get experience/start a career.

    ConsVery sells oriented. I've heard this bank used to be more customer service oriented, but now they are like Wells and BofA. They would rather have a new account then to keep a good, long time customer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    In a tough economy, Comerica is just good enough.

    Auditor (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

    ProsBenefits are still pretty good after all these years.

    Some good people to work with despite the overly politically correct culture.

    ConsBase pay is lower than industry average.

    Affirmative action is alive and well here.

    IT infrastructure/systems are aging and seem to be a long way off from catching up much less leading amongst peer banks.

    Many IT positions are being outsourced to Indian contractors.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook beyond the short term and manage for long term growth. IT may not be a source of revenue, but you have to invest in it more than once every couple decades in order to truly compete.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

     

    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.

    Constoo much politics. tellers and floor personal are not treated the same. No second chances if you make a mistake.No matter how long you've been with the company. One strike and your OUT

    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.
