Pros

Very friendly management, very flexible with time off.

Cons

Pay is a joke, way behind industry standard. Recently financial health of the bank has become a question. Certain parts of the bank are being drug down by the retail branches.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the wages, santa barbara is a extremely expensive city

    Pros

    Santa Barbara is a great community to live or work in, Pacific Capital Bancorp has the potential to be better than it currently is but it will take stronger leadership than it currently has.

    Cons

    Very political atmosphere, bad morale due to layoffs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acting like teenage boys and start acting like the mature role models that you are supposed to be. Be kind, offer opportunities for growth and challenge, understand that consistent action speaks louder than inconsistent communication

    Pros

    Small but large community bank. Still a young bank. Has the potential to compete with large banks.

    Cons

    Its not what you know its who you know attitude. Senior leadership, Human Resources are not well trained. Have many employees who were trained in position of which they have no credentials. Many empoyees specially in Human Resources have no degrees and have many department which have many employees who are more qualified than their managers and have more experience. The Bank is going toward younger less experience higher paid managers who are "Yes Man"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have many smart and caring employees. Seek their advise and be sincere if what you hear is not alway what you were expecting. Just because you are a Senior leader does not make you smarter than anyone else. If you ask for employees advise do use it. Do not just go through the mention and seem like you care
