    I worked at Mercantile Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Mercantile are great. Overall very positive environment, a lot of involvement with community, a lot of encouragement to be involved in other groups, volunteer, etc. Also, you have a lot of visibility into how the company is run, the vision, etc., which is great. Great benefits, time off, etc. They will invest highly in training you.

    Cons

    Given that it is a smaller bank, there are not a lot of opportunities for promotion, advancement. The work load can be demanding at times, high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    The importance of mid level management is key to morale and overall happiness of employees.


  2. Good first job. Thorough training. Large turnover.

    Pros

    Structured company. Fun company. If you enjoy banking it is a good place to get your feet wet.

    Cons

    Not the best pay. Little room for growth after you hit senior analyst. Drives a quick turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Somehow incorporate a junior lending office role. Too many senior analysts. Increase in pay would also benefit people staying.
