    Pros

    Good benefits and overall good atmosphere.

    Cons

    Upper management has a communication problem. They make decisions and hope for the best.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with the team. Gather input and intelligence before making big decisions. There is a lot of awesome capable people at Shawmut that the leadership could tap into if they just looked for it.


  2. Work/life balance needs to be emphasized, other than that i am immensely proud to be part of this well rooted company.

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits and compensation. The senior management lets you in on what their strategy is, and keeps you up to date. I rarely if ever feel out of the loop at this company. I think they keep the correct people for the job, for the most part, and know when that persons time is up in his or her position, when its time to let them go. There are good values to go by, and management sticks to them and references them heavily in meetings. Most employees are happy to be working here and it shows in the amount of hours they put in.

    Cons

    There is little emphasis on work life balance. While higher ups state that its ok if you go to the gym, or leave early, as long as you get the work done, i feel that you are still looked down upon if you aren't going 100 miles an hour all the time. You work long hours and i feel like the one time you leave early because you can, you get looked down upon for doing so. Also, vacations are tough to schedule because of the projects that are in progress. It takes a good amount of planning to actually leave work for a week.

    Advice to Management

    Treat good employees well, and they will stick around. So far so good!
