Pros

Full line of benefits, many tenured teammates, many good coworkers to work with, relationship building with clients

Cons

Out of touch executive and senior management spending too much time micromanaging....too many chiefs....on the retail side you might have a branch manager coaching a teller while being coached by a Area Manager who at the same time is being coached by the Region Executive who at the same time is being coached by the Geographic Exec and if your really lucky they will also have an HR consultant with them all. CRAZY

You have to know somebody or kiss up to survive.

Advice to Management

How about all the above mentioned stay out of the branches and let us do our job.....

Also...CEO how about you take some of that $9,2 salary and reinvest in some of the good people vs continuing to lay them off.

TOOOOOO many senior management levels taking down big salaries vs staffing to support clients.

    Pros

    Decent starting salary, good training and clear message from upper management

    Cons

    I was a branch manager in Orlando market and it was the worst bank management experience of my career of 15 years as a bank manager. They had almost 100 percent turnover in last year and each manager had individual sales goals that pitted them against the staff as we had to fight for customers in lobby. No team concept. No recognition of rest of staff. They say they are focused on customers and that is true. However, there focus is not a team concept, the incentive plan was pitiful and upper management bullies anyone that is not producing daily or hourly. Horrific. Most managers worked open to close..745 to 615 or later..every day..plus Saturdays..Run..run.. the other way.

    Advice to Management
