    I have been working at First Midwest Bancorp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility is good - but is greatly dependent on your manager.
    Raises have remained at at least 3% - even in sour economy.
    If you work hard, you will have the chance to move up - just not very fast.

    Cons

    Like anyplace lately - theme is do more with less. Staffs are lean and budgets never go up - but rather down.
    Innovation is not something that occurs here. Slow to market, slow to innovate.
    Silo'd - new executives have done little to change this - if anything, it is worse than in years past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to spend money on technology - both for employees and for client facing products. Its 2013 not 1996.

    Realize you can only become so lean before morale and loyalty go out the window.
