    Pros

    You get to support a charity of the month to earn credits towards your support the company portion of the annual review, and earn the right to wear jeans to work.
    Staff and lower level management typically get along very well, until an upper manager gets involved in the mandatory monthly ranking of employees.

    Cons

    1% merit raise for core staff (most of whom make under 25K to begin with) for the second year in a row. Sick days cut from 12 to 6. Employee health benefit out of pocket cost have risen faster than inflation for the 3rd year in a row, in addition to many of their health provider options having been removed; such as moving from choice 100 to choice 500 plans. High turn over rates in both staff and management. Top level management keeps promoting one another, and renaming their job titles in order to hand out raises and bonuses to the senior management, while rank and file receive little to no raise and no hope of bonuses. Work loads have become excessive due to repeated layoffs and staff cuts.
    Other banks keep hiring our staff away from us; offering hourly salaries that are anywhere from 40% to 60% higher for doing the exact same job description and functions. Departments no longer have HR generalists, but are referred to a HR call bank (feels just like calling over seas for customer service).
    Monthly scorecards are handed out on a mandatory bell curve ranking system. You can perform at 100% of expectation and still end up at the bottom of the pile, and receive no pay raise for the next year, all because your fellow employees were better perceived by their unit manager on subjective criteria such as: participated in internal surveys, complained the least, handed out more holiday cards, dressed the nicest, gave extra funds to charity participation, etc...
