    I worked at First Federal Savings and Loan of Charleston full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay a competitive wage, encourage education, provide a good product to the customer. promote and allow good stewardship in the community.

    Cons

    stopped promoting from within in 2011. made an intiative to bring down the silos between management divisions, but just ended up making them stronger. customers may question why we change products so often, cant you get it right the first time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    work harder to keep the management team in place that you worked so hard and so long to develop.
