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

ProsFirst 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.

ConsThe 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.
