    Working here will ensure that it is in fact your "Time to be First"... out the door

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    Pros--Better than slavery
    --Bonus perk: Management is indifferent to employees whisteling "Careless Whisper" by George Michael while at work

    Cons--Poor compensation for job positions compared to other bank's in the area
    --Inadequate training, yet management expects performance
    --Mediocre benefits

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere's a reason the employee turnover rate is so high--other Banks simply pay more for the same work.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Teller Service Representatives

    Teller (Current Employee)

    ProsExtensive benefits-$30 mo for full employee medical (Spouse or family over $300 additional),
    3% 401K match. Many locations- Referral bonus if goal is met.

    ConsMany locations very short staffed-I am an over 20 year employee who has so much non-teller work on my plate I can't stay on top of my game regarding products/services. Many great employees, and as many not-great. If you dont like SALES, dont apply! Your happiness will depend on the office you are placed. Highest raise humanly possible is 3% -(request a decent starting pay)

    Advice to Senior ManagementPlease let eveyone focus on their jobs and ease up on the "high-5" type emails. Allow cross over of regions for staff support-you would save so much time and cost. Live your code of ethics and the list won't be necessary. Honesty, Fairness, Professionalism??? --way too elementary. Remember, ACTIONS speak louder than words.

    Top Heavy Executive Structure

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you are breaking into banking there is an opportunity for you to move up the ranks if you are willing to trade a title for lack of salary. Most will work here get a title and then leave for "greener" pastures.

    ConsToo many Execs - There is a Executive for everything, which translates to higher options, higher pay for "elite" and lower more conservative pay for the rest

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed better sales tools, more defined leads development system, sales goals don't correlate to direct activity of sales people. Bonus structure is lacking. STOP HIRING EXECUTIVES FOR EVERYTHING!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
