I have been working at First Citizens Bancorporation full-time for less than a year

Pros

They really value employees. People are happy to work for the company, they love the company. The company really cares about who you are as a person.

Cons

Health insurance costs are higher with First Citizens Bank than at my previous employer. Must be employed at least 1 year to get 401k options.

    I have been working at First Citizens Bancorporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are some of the best in the area. Bank is conservative and stable. Location downtown is nice for walking to eat. IT has a great work-life balance. 40-hour weeks, every week.

    Cons

    Employees in the tech center are "out to pasture". This is where you go at the end of your career to coast and build up that 401k. Slow to embrace technology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in technology--quit outsourcing to sister company. Take advantage of IT to streamline processes and increase efficiency.

    I worked at First Citizens Bancorporation

    Pros

    Good benefit package; very slow traffic bank, so lots of down time that most employees use for shopping/reading on the websites and on the personal phone calls including cellular phone on the teller line, can go out to grab snacks at anytime and bring in to share with others

    Cons

    if you are not a "yes-man" you are out the door. if they don't think they need you, no royalty...Saw lots of employees come and go, and some management had to pack immediately and escorted out from the bank

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the down time to train people for more sales opportunities or develope great customer services to relate to customers; then, maybe the bank traffic would pick up
