Excellent place to work. Flexible, allowed you to make your own decisions and valued my opinions.

Pros

Care about and value employees. Care about their customers!

Cons

Some time felt out of the know and discussions around major strategic decisions because headquarter is in Spokane. Lots more networking opportunities when you are in the Spokane headquarters.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good communication and letting employees know the state of the bank.

    Pros

    Sterling was a great place to work in terms of connection with the bank and other employees, including senior managment. The work-life balance was excellent, and I enjoyed going to work every day.

    Cons

    There were limited growth opportunities in areas I was interested in. I also noticed a lot of people stuck in the same position for a very long time.

    Pros

    Great hours and I loved the culture of the bank when I first started. Small-town friendly bank where everyone knows your name.

    Cons

    There were so many changes for the worse. No longer the small-town friendly bank, sales is all that matters, it doesn't matter how good you are with customers. Absolutely no room to move up unless you "know" someone or have worked for the company 10+ years. Some of the management and employees settled into their positions and did nothing to improve the company. If you want a position where you are challenged, opportunity to learn new things, move up within the company, this is not the place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the Lifers, they are weighing your company down,
