Pros

There're some very nice and easy going people

Cons

UPPER management is very cheap in terms of giving rewards to hard working employees. They cannot retain good/talented employees

Advice to Management

The upper management does not realize that the bank has doubled its size but all they do is keep pushing people work harder but they do not return reasonable rewards. They actually hired many talent people from bigger and more prestigious firms, but they just cannot retain talent people with their managing styles. Many people in my department left within 1 year of employments. They really need to think of ways to retain people instead of only knowing how to push people. People do have options to work somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great People, smaller bank, not too many hoops to jump through. you are lucky enough to Rub elbows with the big guys

    Cons

    There aren't really any downsides. I think like all companies the more paid time you have would be great. So more paid time off would be nice. Only 2 weeks a year.

    Pros

    Good Pay and people who do work hard.

    Cons

    Departments are disjointed. Bank trying to be something they are not. Trying to Grow too fast, and make fast moves. Do not communicate changes well.

    Advice to Management

    know the bank's culture, and work within it. Do not treat people as a doormat.
