Pros

Good reputation in the industry, solid and stable business that has been around forever, overall high net worth clientele due to nature of business (private banking)

    Pros

    Overall good work life balance, nice people and steady company.

    Cons

    The people are hard working and really put forth an effort. The company is riddled by lifers that are hanging around and resist modernity. Not innovative, tradition takes president over common since.

    Advice to Management

    Inject new ideas, trust the experts you hire and embrace change. And for a lot of lifers retire and enjoy your stock.

    Pros

    Good Work/Life Balance Great People Good Benefits

    Cons

    Systyms need to be upgraded/too slow Although there are good opportunities throughout the organization; it is difficult to transition to certain areas (ie. Client Facing Roles, Human Resources) Transferrable skills are not always considered

    Advice to Management

    Rick Waddell is a great leader and walks the walk. He also holds his direct reports accountable for ensuring they stay close to their people and understand what is going on beyond the numbers. Stay focused on the internal talent and ensure there are opportunities for talented people to continue growing. Encourage all business units to consider transferable skills for opportunities beyond the "raw" experience within a certain area. Many transferrable skills can't be learned (ie. good management skills, communication skills, leadership, etc.) Business knowledge can be learned.
