    Pros

    Competitive pay, easy for tenured employees to keep their job (unless branch closures prevent that)

    Cons

    Sr Management is floundering in this low rate environment. Rates and regulations have DRASTICALLY cut profits, Sr managements pursues non-sensical initiatives and abandons them part way, such as scrapping a multi-BILLION dollar systems update after realizing it was not compatible with any of our existing systems, (whoops?) Mid-management continues to turn up the pressure and stress, while handing down layoffs, announcing branch closures, and setting impossible "stretch" goals and non-stop "campaigns". Morale is at an all time low and doesn't seem to be changing any time soon.

    Advice to Management

    Step 1: Determine a target market (are we targeting the affluent and understanding the low volume that entails?, or are we mass market realizing quality of client will suffer?). Step 2: learn how to win within that market using excellent service and specific product. Step 3: deploy a plan that sets realistic goals, backed by sufficient marketing, and supported by all departments.

    Pros

    Great benefits and training programs. Flexible work/ life balance. Perfect working environment for 50+ age group.

    Cons

    Manager tended to micromanage. employees are expected to follow the rules and were disciplined No room for creativity and non recognition of efforts. Archaic practices are fully embraced and upper management very resistant to change. Terrible work environment. Although HR and Departments claim there is career advancement, there is no possibility of vertical or horizontal movement.
    If you are looking for a role that would provide insight, career advancement and in essence a challenge, this company will not fulfill.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Senior Management – more recognition and less micro managing. Focus on retaining team members.
