Pros

Challenging position with plenty of training opportunities. Above average compensation and excellent benefits including 6% 401K match and Defined Benefit Pension Plan. For the most part the people I work with are great.

Cons

Like most companies these days they are taking advantage of the economy and not giving raises like they should. Sometimes technical decisions are made by middle managers that don't have a clue. They solicit advice and direction from the Sr. Engineers but often ignore it.

Advice to Management

You had better get with it on the yearly raises or you will start losing some very talented employees. There are some large companies moving into the area and they are actively recruiting top notch IT talent with attractive offers.

    Pros

    *Ability to move up in the company
    *Managers do try to coach and develop employees to perform at optimum level
    *great benefits, pension, and 401k

    Cons

    *In the branches it is highly sales focused and some employees are not sales driven
    *Could be a lot more personal recognition to reward employees
    *So many branches in a market but everyone is competing for the small customer
    *A lot of call nights/conferences to make weekly hours easily over 50+ hours and Saturday's

    Advice to Management

    I think that management really does try and focus on each employee.

    Pros

    Had the best clients while there.

    Cons

    No matter if you reach your goals you are told to do better without a thank you. Banking seems to be very deceptive. Its all about them making money no matter how they get it. They want you to put clients in products they don't really need so they have their claws in them and it makes it harder for client to switch banks.

    Advice to Management

    Be more ethical!!
