Pros

A generally positive environment with leadership that is more than capable, if not always completely understanding. Typically bearable to enjoyable co-workers, customer base, and policies represent a small, but growing financial institution on the upward trend.

Cons

Potential for discord lurks beneath the surface, and it rarely surfaces, the possibility can be somewhat discouraging.

Advice to Management

While progressing strongly and with certainty, be sure to keep recognizing the front line employees, who do the company the biggest service by not only retaining clientele, but actively recruiting new clients, both in accordance with the sales goals, as well as with personal contact unrelated to sales. A disinterested or incompetent facadecan hide even the best run corporation.

    Pros

    Working for a small bank allows you to know every employee in the company. It allows you to know exactly who you need to call and in what department. It also allows the company to be very agile. I also believe this company is set in stone to be in business for a very long time. It is one of the best capitalized banks in the area, and the management is very capable. Simply the fact that most employees of the bank have been here at least 5 years, even on the retail side, speaks for itself.

    Cons

    Being a small company, the opportunity for advancement is small. There are less positions to fill, which can lead to frustration when opportunities do open up and there is a large pool of very deserving and able employees.

    Advice to Management

    When goals like two new branches per year are announced, try to stick to it. One full year without opening any branches, briefly after reinforcing the two branch per year standard is a bit confusing and frustrating.
