Pros

MB offers a positive, collaborative culture with open communication, great employees and a great team spirit! The training and educational opportunities are top notch and I have already been promoted within a year of employment. MB cares about their employees and this is felt across the organization as a whole. We have great employee events and even competitions like a Baggo tournament with participation of our CEO. I have never worked for a company where you are invited to lunch with the President within two months of your hire date, or where the President speaks to the company at large every week! People respect each other here and are willing to assist one another even if it goes beyond their job duties. I would recommend this company to anyone who wants to be challenged and wants to work in a cooperative, supportive setting.

Cons

Can't think of a single negative!

Advice to Management

Keep up the great culture!

    Pros

    Most employees are helpful and hardworking. 2011 retail sales training area created was good and well organized. Red Checking account was a proactive and well positioned product for the low interest rate environment.

    Cons

    Computer systems are way behind the norm (circa 1985?) and difficult to use/learn. Retail management team is not well organized. Unlikely to get promoted unless you came up through MB's training program out of college. Most mid- to low-level acquired employees are assumed to be stupid, yet they are frequently more knowledgeable and experienced than their supervisors. Many great employees leave or are shoved out. HR dept did a poor job of keeping positions filled - average hire took 6 months.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money on better technology. Assess the actual skill level of all employees. The right employees in the right positions will retain and grow client base and broaden client relationships.

    Pros

    The emplyees are nice bankwide and the offer decent benefits.

    Cons

    MB has turned into a chop shop for commercial banking. Employee morale is horrible and it's a pure sales enviornment. The retail enviornment is similar in that they push sales and their is virtually no opportunity for career movement.

    Advice to Management

    Quit hiring from the outside and do a better job of focusing in on your current employees.
