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.

    I have been working at KeyBank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always career opportunities to move around departments; although these opportunities are mostly all lateral moves, it's difficult to move "up" in the company.
    Decent benefits, 3 weeks vacation to start out.
    Kind of laid back for a bank, although the corporate culture is a little strange.

    Cons

    Low-balled wages/salaries. Denied annual raises and/bonuses even when the company is doing well; this seems to depend on the department you work for. Little to no work-life balance, even though they have the technology to allow more flexibility, this will also depend on the department/manager.

    Constantly eliminating positions to create smaller staff size, while the work volumes increase. Then expect the higher work volumes to be completed with less staff, while offering no pay increase or bonuses, noting the base rates are a low balled rate to begin with. Terrible for employee morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more fair pay and better work life balance.

    Pros

    Vacation time and flexibility...work from home, etc. Good work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Pay is on the lower end. Like all companies, your manager can make or break your experience.
