Pros

Feedback is given on a regular basis in a set and fair way.

Cons

They hire outside employees and pay them more than employees who have been there for years. They will sometimes hire from outside even if there is a qualified person internally.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management should work to eliminate the cliques present.

    I worked at First Midwest Bancorp

    Pros

    Great Benefits - a lot of vacation from the first day on the job, good Health Insurance;
    Good Pay, compared to other similar companies.

    Cons

    Very bad mid management. Something is very wrong with those people. Disrespectful and unable to motivate employees. As a result, there is huge turnover, despite the great benefits.
    HR is terrible - not protecting employees rights, but rather trying to alienate them even more.
    Upper management has good intentions, but the whole strategy is poorly implemented because of the lack of coordination with the retail floor. They simply don't know what is going on in those branches - the information they're getting is filtered by branch managers to make them look good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to better control that mid management and HR are in line with the mission of the company.
