If you work hard, it's ok

International Operations (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Commerce Bank full-time for less than a year

ProsThe pay is ok. The company offers great experience. There are many opportunities for advancement within the company. Paid holidays and plant of vacation is available. The people are typically great to work with as well. The company sponsors many incentives such as picnics, free tickets to events, free checking acts, etc

ConsIf you are not experienced in the banking industry and you don't' start out in an entry level position as I didn't, the work is kind of thrown at you all to quick. My training was inadequate and I was worried about my job security for the first 3 months of working.

Strong, conservative community bank with great potential for the future

Treasury Services Product Development (Current Employee)
Kansas City, MO

I have been working at Commerce Bank

ProsFinancial stability and strength of the bank, federal holidays, generous vacation/timeoff, location, tutition assistance, 401(k) profit sharing (when goals are met), reputation of the bank and its senior-level managers, personal development opportunities

ConsStigma associated with working for any bank, very conservative bank - to the point of being behind the curve of all other banks, too much emphasis on meetings with all people before any decision can be made, unclear how one can receive a promotion or why some people are promoted over others, inconsistency among different departments when it comes to timeoff, limited advancement opportunities (in certain areas of the bank) because many individuals remain in the same position for entire career, too much emphasis on short-term cost-cutting measures over long-term growth opportunities

Advice to Senior ManagementDevelope employees for a career rather than a job, streamline decision process to take advantage of new opportunities and technologies, look beyond short-term cost-cutting measures to increase profit and revenue, take more risks that will payoff in the long-term, support all levels of personel and staff rather than certain areas (sales and commercial lending "appear" to be preferred over most all other areas of the bank)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
