Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on guiding employees to success and teach them how to use their resources and tools right from the get-go, there definitely is a learning curve.

    Fine pay but bad management and stupid goals

    I worked at Associated Banc-Corp full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    They paid me more than other banks to do less. They have a lot of technological advances that were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Management was unbearable. Once you're comfortable they really open up how things actually operate. Branch manager was pushy and cared only about the numbers and district manager belittled BM in front of other employees. The goals were unreasonable and caused harassment of customers and lying in order to keep your job. Kept just enough staff that if it was a slow day they would send you home, flip out over your lack of something to do, or tell you to read brochures. If someone called in it through off everything and branch manager would be upset over anyone calling in sick for themselves or their child (unless it was BM's child then it's totally ok to miss work).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Numbers aren't everything
    -If you tell employees they can't take their 15 minute breaks and freak out if they're 2 minutes late do not show up late every single day
    -Customers do not want to be sent to a banker every time they come in so you can sell them crap
    -Coaching is fine...but when it comes to the point of telling someone how to say "Hello" to a customer it's excessive

    Pros

    Decent salary, management has no idea what the staff is doing and does not care.

    Cons

    No clear direction, very "layered" management - not accessible and do not speak to their staff (don't have time and don't care). Very much a who you know environment, with dismal morale. Failure is the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the power struggle and focus on accomplishing something.
