    Pros

    Independence, set my own schedule, a decent paycheck, was able to source business that could have been considered quality investments within commercial mortgage lending. Good benefit package.

    Cons

    Management gives the appearance of incompetence particularly in my area of expertise. Unapproachable and from my experience had no vision. I was hired in a VP position but there was absolutely no training. In fact, I had no office support staff. I had no key to my office on the 18th floor for several weeks and no computer for 4 weeks. If I wanted to prepare a solicitation package I had to access the materials, draft the package myself , assemble it and with no adminstrative assistant help.

    Advice to Management

    Those in mid to senior management levels need to get their act together. When presented with a relationship-building opportunity, they need to have people in place who can recognize it for present and future dealmaking potential that can result in long-term relationships. Bank is multi-dimensional and has the potential to compete with similar regional banks.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Good monthly incentives if earned, learned a great deal out of the company, great co workers, always compensated me and recognized me for being a great teller.

    Cons

    not so good manager, could not advance to full-time, no communication with manager even though I tried, a lot of overturn within the company at that time.

    Advice to Management

    They were great with me as far as recognition for my great work but would not let me advance once I was at that branch to another location to full time.

    Pros

    There isn't any good reasons to work here, bank here, have your mortgage here. They treat their employees terrible and have no regards for work life balance. You are just a number to them and they do not train you properly for any job.

    Cons

    No training, terrible ethics, they make shady loans, and have terrible organizational leaders. Very poorly ran company. Management is a mess all the way to the top!!

    Advice to Management

    Get off your chair and help your employees

    Pros

    Really good growth opportunity to gain new customers since customers are unhappy with the dominate banks, Sincere genuine employees who care about the relationships they establish.

    Cons

    offices are run with minimal people and there are so many openings that current people are getting burned out

    Advice to Management

    the leader that runs the Tampa branches is very negative and sarcastic creates controversy and shows favoritism

    Restructure sales incentive plans to make them more attractive to attract new talent. Improve the sales/production reporting for individual sales contributors. Develop new employee on-boarding protocol. Overall, a good place to work.

    Pros

    Decent compensation. Decent benefits. Decent locations. Computer system is bettter than at many other banks. Training is pretty good and thorough.

    Cons

    Constant micro-management at every level. Very political. Always play favorites, even when the favorites performance does not warrant it. No work/life balance at all. Very short staffed. Goals change all the time, even in the middle of the month. Reviews are inconsistent. Very hard to work with HR on any disciplinary issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They might actually have some good advice instead of ruling from the ivory tower in Cincinnati. Too out of touch with the affiliates.
