    Advice to Management

    Allow interns and students to work in various departments of Busey (rotational program?). This includes loans, investments, and retail. It would help them see what their interests are if they intend on continuing a career with banking.

  2. Busey has it's quirks but so do most places.

    Pros

    First Busey is a good company. They might have been a little too overreaching with their loan portfolio but it is a solid company. Busey offers a lot of training and making sure that you understand your job as well as others in the bank.

    Cons

    The major downside to Busey is it is a community bank that thinks it can alienate other markets because it is based in Champaign, IL. There are other branches and markets that seem to putter along with no real growth and so if you aren't in Champaign, you might as well not exist.
