    Pros

    Great work schedule, decent benefits, great customers.

    Cons

    Lacks good leadership and has little direction. High turn-over due to new employees "not meeting" their unrealistic sales goals. Tenured employees have left the bank because of poor managemnet and getting a promotion is unheard of as they only hire managers from other banks. It is very obvious that management cares more about making numbers than taking care of it's customers or employees.

    Advice to Management

    The Northwest Division is managed with an iron fist. Branch managers and employees have their job security threatened daily and that "they need to sell or find another position at another bank." Take a look at how many tenured employees have left the Northwest Division in the last 2 years.
