    Pros

    Great place to start for the experience. Some exciting challenges to help Tellers meet their goals requirements.

    Cons

    Some locations have horrible Management with very nasty attitudes and even if reported the higher up look pass it.

    Advice to Management

    They need to give classes to Supervisors/Branch Managers on attitudes and on proper way to communicate with employees/customers

    Pros

    good atmosphere and people, the products are innovative and timely and they are making a good effort to improve in all phases of the business

    Cons

    May not be moving fast enough to keep up with the competition which is springing up on the accounts payable automation from non-bank companies that are even more innovative

    Pros

    People LOVE working here. They stay here. Seems people only leave because of relocation or some personal issues affecting their stability. There are good benefits, lots of promotion opportunities, the ability transfer to totally different states and stay with the company. My boss works with me on my family schedule. I'm fairly compensated. I'm pretty happy here!

    Cons

    Training for my position was more of a "ask questions if you've got them" type of situation. And it would be nice to have some good reference materials that I could use to search in and answer my own questions. Each branch and manager has its own experience though. If you are part time, you have to wait like a month to get your first check and that is a burden.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Commerce is a nice place to work. People are friendly, there is great job security, and they invest in their employees. Working from home is an option, and management is very nice about unexpected days off. The Core Values of the company are great, however I admit they aren't always followed. There are several working groups at Commerce attempting to change this, and they have met with moderate success.

    Cons

    The technology is falling behind, and nobody has a plan how to fix it. There is so much "business as usual" ingrained in the culture that attempts to change practices and solutions are met with lots of resistance. They say the do agile development, but in reality they don't. They say they want to continuously improve, but the second that means that someone's current way of working has to change, it gets put on a back burner. From an IT perspective, most of these problems originate from the lines of business, and the ramshackle excuse of a QA department that works there. Business partners from the lines of business refuse to pay for any technology upkeep, and the aforementioned QA teams are so set in their ways that modern software development is impossible. The great job security I mentioned comes from the fact that it is extremely difficult to get fired from Commerce, meaning that there are lots of people filling roles they have no business filling.

    Advice to Management

    Force people to change. If you can't fire them, than at least stop accepting their petty excuses. IT management MUST be willing to stand up to the lines of businesses, otherwise they have no right calling themselves managers. If you feel you aren't up to the task, step down as a manager, and find a role more suitable to your timid disposition. Commerce has far too many managers as it is.
