    I worked at KeyBank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    base salary and bonus structure are great. Internal/support departments are incredibly helpful. I would consider working there again, just not in a sales role.

    Cons

    Upper management does not care about employees or customers. I often worked over 40 hours per week (which I expected and don't mind), but when I casually mentioned it to my manager I was told not to bring it up again. Ironically, there was a class-action lawsuit for just such practices and I did receive some extra pay. Investment Advisers chose mutual funds and annuities based on payout, not client needs. The final straw came when I attended a training led by the regional manager. His advice was to "twist the knife in our customer's weaknesses to convinced them our solutions are best". He's no longer with the company, but overall this is the companies mentality. Sales through fear, regardless of pay, is no way to conduct business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at company's true goals and adjust sales culture.

    No raises given to young technology employees, no incentive to stay

    I worked at KeyBank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable and subdued workplace, 401k match.

    Cons

    Culture involves fearmongering and control, poor opportunities for personal growth, poor salary increase schedule, regular rounds of layoffs, no respect for technical staff (they are considered disposable). Benefit cost high versus other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company will be more competitive with technical offerings, not more marketing and fees. Regarding technical staff as non-valued cost center employees who exist to fulfill whatever marketing develops is sure to result in technology product offerings that are unstable, non-innovative, and weak compared to competitors such as USAA FSB.
