I worked at First Busey

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.

    I worked at First Busey

    Pros

    There is a very flat organization structure and its a small division for wealth management. This means that you get a lot of responsibilities right away.

    Cons

    Informal structure means that you do not have a defined assignment at times nor specific performance measures. Work is sometimes very meaningless and arbitrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be performance appraisals and more set work. There is no information on daily responsibilities or the impact of work done.

    Hires from within, good incentives for reaching sales goals, upper management is very involved with employees, good benefits, a comfortable work environment.

    Cons

    The pay is low in comparison to other banks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider an annual bonus for ALL employees regardless of status in b5 and raising pay to match other banking institutions in our area.
