Senior management was competent. The problem was with executive management. They foolishly moved into Florida markets via acquisitions despite ample warning from consultants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start giving realistic goals to Branch Manager, since we are not busy and it is hard to lure in new business.

    I worked at Whitney Holding

    Pros

    Bank holidays, no weekends, close at 4pm...
    Flexible work hours, great work life balance...
    Not like big bank sales atmosphere, more of a "relationship bank".

    Cons

    One of Top Personal Bankers in Company and still made less than $40k a year....
    They use typewriters nearly every day! Seriously! Little to no technology, even though it has been coming for years...
    No advancement potential. Horrible incentive pay. Health & Dental benefits are sub par outside of Louisiana

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being a "good ol' boys club". You keep bad managers just because you "like" them? Upper management seems to be oblivious to real world needs of retail staff. There are little to no documented procedures...I had to learn how to get things done by word of mouth by people that found out the hard way.
    Spend money on technology FAST!! You must be nearly 20 years behind bigger banks! Can you even catch up when you are that far behind in this day in age?
