Great overall company for commercial banking. Salary on the low side.

Credit Analyst (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

I have been working at Wintrust Financial full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent people and training. The Company is growing quickly and there is ample opportunities to learn.

ConsSalary below market. Disconnect with senior management.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide internal raises and better evaluations, especially to those with less experience and fewer years in the industry. An excellent credit training program, but since you're educating general human capital, must ensure employees are properly compensated. Otherwise they will have an incentive to move taking the education you gave them.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
