    Pros

    Highly collaborative environment where employees are encouraged and expected to network, collaborate internally, both within the department and across departments. Ability and encouragement to find professional interests and strengths and to pursue them as it relates to building the department and the Bank. The Bank provides a lot of information to employees to enhance their work experience and to enhance their ability to perform their jobs. Great benefits. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some departments are slow in responding to break downs in operations. When things don't work well, employees spend a lot of time trying to convince management there is a problem. It can take a long time at the Bank to see change for the better. The Bank is also slow in responding to poor management performance, sometimes hiring someone not qualified for the position but trying to groom them in hopes they will grow into the position. In the meantime, direct reports experience a high level of frustration with the manager who is struggling. The Bank needs to be more open to new growth opportunities for the Bank.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to seek feedback from employees to make sure midlevel managers are performing according to expectations. Management needs to ask for feedback from employees who are client facing and be open to changing policies and procedures to make sure the Bank is providing an excellent client experience. A fairer process in decision making about which employees are selected to be a part of committees and teams that are charged with providing growth and guidance to the Bank. Their retirement benefits are generous but there are not enough investment choices in their 401(k) program.


  2. It was good years ago, but things have been different now. Many employees had left. Morale is bad.

    I have been working at Mechanics Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Provide basic health cares, stable income job, 401k matching 3% annually, profit sharing, and faithful customers

    Cons

    You don't feel rewarded for what you do everyday. No acknowledgement or encouragement from Upper Management. Low incentive.

    Advice to Management

    Show more caring and encouragement toward your employees. Once a good employee leaves, it would take twice as hard to find another good employee to replace.
