    Pros

    Bonus structure was good and very visable and easy to track. Better commissions than prior employer at B of A.

    Cons

    Manager was more involved in her own life to notice the entire branch turned over in the 6 months that i was there, including me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manager requirements should be a little bit tougher. Regional should be able to identify this prior to having the entire staff request transfers or leave.

    Doesn't Recommend
