I worked at FirstMerit

Pros

First Merit offers a training course and is a nice low pressure environment to work at if that is what you are looking for.

Cons

Software is a bit obsolete. Very high amount of turnover coupled with poor transparency some members of the management can be frustrating.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While my employment was an overall pleasant experience, I greatly would have appriciated more transparency in regards to my job and what plans were laid for me.

    Pros

    Employees are nice, they treat you with respect and make you feel a part of the team. Great place to work.

    Cons

    First Merit bank is a small neighborhood bank. There is not a lot of opportunity to move up in the corporation unless you live in Akron. People dont tend to leave their positions there to allow new openings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I like how the management throughout the corporation make you feel special. They are there to help build you and make their team stronger.
