Some candid feedback on middle market banking

Business Relationship Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

ProsGrowth of company creates opportunities. Seems to value results but does not seem to like dissent.

ConsVery conservative credit culture. Senior management needs to have a better grip on the "nuts and bolts" of how the operation is run and how to improve it as there is much room for improvement.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor senior management of middle market baking - stop being so heavy handed and inflexible.

Although they are clearly smart people, they need to get a better feel for middle market lending, the people that work for them, the customers, and credit (our #1 product). It is very clear that they have little actual experience in the US middle market.

Also - need to stop forcing corporate initiatives (the brand, one bank, etc.) that may not be applicable in each segment of the business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
