Pros

Good culture, decent benefits, never felt like I was forced to sell something that someone didn't need. Promote a lot from within.

Cons

Recently changed checking accounts and they are less competative
Rates are not very competative either

Advice to Management

Need to establish a training program for people that want to be promoted. The do great at promoting from within but are terrible at training them for the position.

    Pros

    You will work with some great people in the Chicago market. The benefits are (health, dental, 401K) decent. You can also purchase extra vacation time if your manager approves. Depending on your manager and their clout you can take advantage of the vast array of e-learning's available. Respectable super-regional financial institution that can be a decent stepping stone and pad your resume.

    Cons

    In no particular order: low salaries for PB/LPBi's, severe micro-management, unattainable goals that are VERY unit driven (think Wells Fargo), very poor quarterly compensation program based off of retail banking product sales it is VERY bad, Investment comp plan is OK but has started to decline over the past 2 yr's, low CEI (customer service score) payouts even though they are a major challenge to get an 'A' consistently, very political in terms of how you can grow your career promotions are given to friends or 'superstar' sales people that close and open checking accounts or out right lie to customers to get them to do what's in the best interest of the banker not the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting people based off of how they manipulate the KPI system, these people are not leaders and cannot be expected to live or promote the company's values. Senior management at 222 in Chicago needs to gain a better understanding of what really goes on at the branches versus what their regional managers tell them, stop being hypocritical and promote the right people not the ones self-dealing or gaming. Do a better job of rewarding the honest hard working people that do things by the book, they are your real superstars.
