    Pros

    Money is good, opportunities for growth, well known brand in the banking industry.

    Pros

    Everyone gets along pretty well. The "hammer" won't come down hard on you if you miss goals or make an error. Co-workers are friendly, definitely a no jerks allowed type of culture.

    Cons

    Pay. You really must go in with a mind-set that you will only see inflation bumps of 2-4% and occasional merit bumps of 6-8%. Must show proof of another offer to increase pay (and be wiling to take it).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce costs by increasing technology to increase pay. Simple.
