Once a great bank that has been destroyed by current leadership.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Flint, MI

ProsFlexible work hours and a reasonable salary. It is Michigan and it is a job, but that's about it. Some managers understand how difficult it is to work here and make it tolerable for their employees. Others don't.

ConsThis was once a great bank to work at but the acquistion of Republic has completely destroyed employee faith in management. The Hartman era has been a complete failure. Operations and back room remain a debacle. Simple processing and data entry type errors made at an alarming rate. Absolutely no value proposition which makes selling very difficult. Senior management with a new strategy or focus each week. Very poor communication. Senior management still has country clubs, big bonuses, etc. while restricted stock and any form of a reasonable bonus has been cut from those doing all the work.

Advice to Senior ManagementPerform due diligence before making acquisitions. Try executing one strategy before heading down a completely different path. Cut out your country clubs, bonuses, restricted stock, etc. and feel the pain with the rest of us.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    This company treats its managers with a very condescending tone.

    I have been working at Citizens Republic Bancorp


    Pros: It is a place to work. That is about the best thing I can say.… Cons: They say they want people with sales backgrounds and then have managers with zero sales experience micro-manage the sales process.… Advice to Senior Management: Stop making people sit on the floor and speaking to them as if they were 4 years old. Whoever came up with that idea… More
