I have been working at City National Bank

Pros

Management is nice to let you balance your work life and your home life. There is room for movement upwards as long as you know how to play the corporate game, I have not cracked the solution yet though.

Cons

Pay is really poor compared to other places with job skills necessary for Business System Analyst. The culture is to hierarchical and rigid that nearly all managers are paranoid to share information/resources with one another as each is trying to protect their own.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide incentives for teams to work cross-functionally rather than such rigidly to allow for more agile and responsive service in all areas/departments.

    Conservatively run, not necessarily a bad thing - offer opportunities to gain wide breadth of experience.

    Pros

    On the smaller side, so you get to wear a lot of hats, which allows for good skill sets development. Very solid bank with a good focus on the right markets.

    Cons

    Pay is below market standars for all jobs, but Sales. Company can be too conservative and focused on this year's stock price vs. taking some risk in investment toward the future. This is getting better, but still needs improvement. Very political like all banks. Have to work relationships to get ahead more so than being kick*** at your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people by adding leadership development programs, better basic trainig programs, etc. In other words, grow the caliber of your people not only by giving them good opportunities for experience, but specific skills and knowledge to maximize each opportunity. Groom employees for management, create a management or leadership track so people feel like they are working towards something. Don't limit leadership programs by title since title levels are not equivalent or a good gauge of leadership bank wide.
