Pros

The pay was very good on the base salary.

Cons

The payout on the investement side was miniscule, between 3-15%. The management is poorly structured with a divide between the investment and bank side and the LFCs caught in between. Some of the Branch Managers have the old mentality that you selling investments is taking away from their deposit base. There is a lack of a good support system. The branch managers spend 75% of their time our of the office on "business calls." When the branch manager is in the office, they refuse to actually do any work, such as opening accounts. I actually had multiple ocassions when I was in the break room eating lunch, and the branch manager came and got me to have me open an account, even though they were doing nothing. The disciplinary techniques are very strange. Your manager will not say anything to you about how you are doing, but then will write you up for something that they never got an explanation for, until the write-up is occurring, and when there is a completely logical explanation, they don't care.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Actually ask questions before writing somebody up, and don't write people up based on hearsay. Have some integrity.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities for advancement. Promotes from within.

    Cons

    The pay doesn't seem to be the best, and not most qualified necessarily in supervisory roles (I have never applied to be a supervisor just an observation).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Merit increases should be based on merit
