Pros

work hours are 9-5, very slow in making decisions

Cons

The Manager is clueless about the job at hand, no experience either in technology or in the domain. Very disruptive management has the talent leaving. It is a revolving door with people coming in and leaving within weeks/months.

Advice to Management

Fire the senior management staff that cannot deliver results. Not worth it to keep them on the roster, they are doing more harm to the company. Sort out the internal politics, not good to see the managers openly conspiring against each other. Staff is not slave to be directed at the management's command and will.

    Pros

    Good company to work for,. goals are reasonable some room for advancement at lower levels.

    Cons

    when you get a promotion there is not a big raise. if you get promoted several times then you will be far behind in pay.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro managing everything, Trust your employees to get the job done and stop trying to be like Wells Fargo.

    Pros

    Awesome management, very supportive and career focused. People at every level treat you with respect and work together with you. Large bank with small town atmosphere; the way banking used to be and the way customers love!

    Cons

    Hard to move into management positions; everyone loves their jobs so much they don't move on too often. It is the mark of a great workplace!

    Advice to Management

    Internships and management training programs would be great to have implemented for those seeking to move up in their careers without having to leave to get the experience.
