Pros

The bank has some great locations in NC and SC, they are a family owned that prides itself on their people, there are many educational oppurtinities with the bank to advance yourself, they also have in house training which is nice for a bank this size. Most areas do not work on Saturdays and close at 530 on Fridays, Thursday being the late day most work, alot better than Fridays which alot of banks are going to. Bank is big on cross training employees to do several jobs that can work for you or against you depending on what area your in.

Cons

Medium sized bank works for and against you in several ways by limiting position opennings and your abiltiy to moved into them vs the bank bringing in someone from a competitor, which happens... Human Resources will promise things that city exe will not follow, thus be sure to get anything in writing or at least have some sort of management acknowledge comments made by human resources. Being located mostly in the southeast, if you plan to move elsewhere, transferring will not be an option, once you reach branch management, you've topped out as business bankers, etc do not leave these positions very often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Human resources does not always let seior management know what is going on with employees and deals they have worked on with employees. Senoir management needs to do thier job and then infor HR what needs to be done, instead of the other way around. Area Exe's are too busy dealing with their bottom line to worry about whats going on in the branches, I do not know if there is anyway to make the system any better, but the communication lines do need to be openned up more than they currently are.

    Pros

    The pay is very decent, and the work is pretty easy.

    Cons

    No challenges. When you do a good job, no one acknowledges your work. Extremely boring as you sit at a desk waiting for people to walk into the bank all day. It's quite obvious that Senior Management is most concerned with their paychecks over your career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees - really. Don't just pretend you do.
