    Pros

    Really care about employees; good, solid, stable company, exciting work; generous time off and other benefits including employee banking perks

    Cons

    Exceedingly conservative; small-town values and office locations might turn off some employees; some aspects of banking might be "boring" to those looking for exciting or fast-paced work

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - record quarterly earnings is something to be admired

    Pros

    No pros that I can recall.

    Cons

    1. 50-60 hour work weeks.
    2. Pay is pathetic compared to the competition.
    3. Very political organization and hard to move up within the ranks if your not smoozing with senior management.
    4. Call nights several times a month (which do not guarantee any further sales results).
    5. Sales, Sales, Sales, Sales driven - Senior Management is highly driven by your production figures.
    6. Monthly sales meetings are the same bunch of bogus every month (area managers talk down to us like we're elementary children ..."remember to always open a checking account, blah blah blah).
    7. Never had an opportunity to recruit and select my own staff from interviewing.
    8. Constant shortage of staff within branch - yet goals are still held to par (in 2012 I averaged 1 teller).
    9. Inconsistent underwriting among managers.
    10. Vacation times only permitted if appropriate coverage within branch.

    ....the list goes on...

    Advice to Management

    Try to spend more time within the branches leading rather than preaching what actions to follow. Promote people equally based on production success rather than political status quo within company.
