Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your focus should be on your customers. Put more planning into the changes you make and make sure it will cause as little disruption and anger from current customers. Move BEYOND the "open a checking account, get XYZ for free". The days of free toasters are over. If you do not do something to stop hemorrhaging accounts, there will be nothing left. Spend the extra time and money to treat your loyal customers.

    I have been working at Midland States Bank

    Pros

    Great ancillary training; some mid-level managers that are fantastic - motivating, smart, very qualified.

    Cons

    Isolated senior management; too many decisions based on personality and not analysis and relevance. Disresgard for employee chosen career paths for personal agendas - HR is a significant failure. (see interview review for comments provided by someone else) It's like having to relive high school and not being in the small 'it' crowd all over again for most of the staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take off your blinders; survey employees and find our what's really going on. Listen and react.
