Pros

Wintrust professionals are up to bar among their peers and always look out for the customer, sometimes even more than the company.

Cons

Lack of growth opportunities; poor communication; very traditional.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Young professionals need more incentive to stay at the company.

    Quickly growing company that needs to collapse all the different charters and increase efficiency.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement. Highly regarded company within their market. Cash rich which allows one to cater to customers better than they would be able to otherwise. Very flexible with your vacation schedules and family time. Pay is within the normal range.

    Cons

    The company is very top heavy with a lot of SVP and higher employees and much fewer worker bees causing everyone to be hectic at all times. The company is very inefficient with its fifteen charters and I have yet to see a benefit to all the small banks. Their continued purchases of failed banks and cutting 80% + of their employees has caused many departments to be overworked and slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Collapse some of the charters to improve efficiency. Slow down and ensure that every department has sufficient support staff and competent management to accomplish goals.
