Pros

This company offers a competitive salary and is considered to be the best in its industry.

There has been a lot of strategic moves within the company that has caused some offices to close.

    -I work at a top performing branch that has great leadership. Only thing I can think of is not the company's fault. But I can't go by my bank unless I request time off.

    - Keep modeling after top performing branches! It works.
