Pros

The upper management is very reception to conversation if you are a performer. If not, I can't say the same. The benefits are very good. The hours are great, and the working environment is very good.

Cons

The lower level management structure is not good. Retail managers act in a manner consistent with call center managers. Rewards are "dangled" to motivate staff with not much hope of achieving goals. Coaching sessions are more like inquiry or interrogations. The title of manager should lend to the assumption that the individual holding the title has the ability to effectively manage a staff. Unfortunately that is not the case. The branch manager, or FCL, (in my experience) does not typically have the ability to handle pressure or stress appropriately. Thusly, the staff bears the weight. Not good at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The training for lending and cross selling is abundant; however, teach the managers how to effectively manage a staff. FINANCIAL CENTER LEADER. A leader is someone who can lead a team to a group goal. Ensure that the FCL's can lead their team and not turn into a taskmaster.

    Pros

    Organizational culture is fantastic and the employees are wonderful. They have Loyal Clients

    Cons

    No growth or shall I say slow growth. I am ambitious and they really don't promote growth in the San Diego office. Basically if you want an easy job to do til you are 65 this is the place I'd go to

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement growth

    Pros

    The hours are bankers hours. The 401K plan matches 6 percent and the attendance policy is very lax.

    Cons

    No upward movement. Very little opportunity for advancement. Raises are 1 to 2 percent annually. Too much emphasis on the numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that your employees have a lot of influence with clients. People do not want to bank where employees are unhappy. Start promoting from within.
