Cole Taylor Bank has established a great leadership team, a lot of opportunity to advance

Vice President (Former Employee)
Ann Arbor, MI

ProsVery aggressive growth plan, the leadership team is very observant of individual performance both for the sales force and the operations team. This group has a very impressive track record in mortgage banking, they have applied what they have learned along the way and this venture seems to be bringing out the best of those experiences.

ConsMaybe growing a little too fast, always a challenge. A clerk could easily get lost in the shuffle if they are not willing to go the extra mile on a very regular basis. Be prepared for a lot of hours at the office if you want to be a standout employee in this group.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing in growth mode what you were doing when putting the foundation together. they had a very balanced approach to building the foundation, equal time was given to operations and sales. That is much harder to do as you get bigger, remember how valuable that balance was in the beginning.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
