It's a conservative bank, what did you expect?

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL

Pros#1 Vacation days, #2 an emphasis on charity and community service, #3 Overtime was very rare

ConsI have never worked anywhere with so many people just waiting it out for retirement, or with such a cultish deference to management in every aspect of their work life. The pay was not competitive, but then, not much is expected of you. Put all of that together and you get a stifling environment where there are 5 middle managers involved in every decision, with their main criteria being what the manager above them will accept. I constantly felt that my work was mediocre.

Advice to Senior ManagementFlatten your management structure. If you are going to lay off employees, don't give your CEO 12-17 million pay packages. Strip everyone of their titles and start over again. Give less importance to your suit and your self importance, more to your work.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
