    Pros

    People you work with on a daily basis and the Doyle Legacy.Location of the branches you can work.

    Cons

    Upper management, as evidenced by their recent losses. Their ineptness in management of employees and polices toward women. ( you have to be good looking to get ahead)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you tell your employees you make the bank the "Best" pay them the Best!!
    With the recent departure the bank should return to its former greatness.

    I worked at Exchange Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    None for lower management level personnel.

    Cons

    When upper management can never be accountable for bad decisions,(not even to minor stock holders) there is something ethically wrong with the leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility, and stop looking for fall guys.
    (Hard to do when you know you can never be fired)

    I have been working at Exchange Bank

    Pros

    Very nice place to work. Management is very helpul and easy to approach. Even though Exchange bank is goint through a diffcult time right now it still works with the community and gives back to the community. Exchange Bank is a very good place to work and balance your time with family and work.. You work 40 hours a week sometimes more but only if you choose to work more otherwise you are not expected to work more than that..

    Cons

    Itis not very easy to move up the ladder, but if you try hard you might go up some places.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Semior management is doing a good job right now.

    I have been working at Exchange Bank part-time

    Pros

    No sales pressure, barely any goals at all actually. Tellers are only required to get TWO sales a month! Set weekly schedules, although there's opportunity to take an extra day if a branch needs someone short notice. Decent starting pay for a teller position. Mostly friendly atmosphere between employees, although they can be a lot more serious than the bigger banks. Just a whole different atmosphere

    Cons

    Technology is quite inadequate for employees, it eats of a lot of time trying to make it work correctly or making up for pressing a wrong button. Vacation time can be hard to schedule if you are a newer employee as most other employees have been there for a couple decades, so no way you're getting any seniority. Slight lack of motivation with bankers since sales goals are low....oh, and there's basically ZERO compensation/bonus plan. Also, they use a ton of paper since they are not up with technology and lots of simple banking tasks have to be completed manually with a pen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think up some kind of incentive plan if you are looking for ways to bring the bank more customers and expand the number of products current customers hold. It can help with motivation.
