    Pros

    Each office is run like a small bank so it doesn't feel micro-managed.
    Great benefits
    Good work/ life balance
    Long-tenure of employees and promotions from within
    Solid underwriting and common sense approach
    Each deal is customized to the customer which provides for more opportunity

    Cons

    Somewhat hierachical structure beyond individual office
    Formal culture that can tend to limit innovation
    Somewhat slow to adopt new technologies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frequently assess processes/ initiatives to see if they are still relevant and ask for suggestions from employees who are on the front-lines. Less top-down approach and more bottom-up initiatives. Employees on the front lines are most aware of customer desires and competition.

    Pros

    Management cares about employees, customers and shareholders. They tend to be pros who treat people fairly. Expectations for employees are reasonable, while everyone is expected to contribute the goals were reasonable relative to the resources and the market. Benefits are attractive and costs were reasonable.

    Cons

    Some bank systems need upgrading. The Bank did not invest in the latest IT hardware and software. The bank is slow to change and somewhat stodgy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strengthen the retail side of the Bank. Put more emphasis on customer service and less on rigid compliance. Yes, compliance is important but a fully compliant bank without customers is still out of business.
