    Pros

    Not many. Nice employees. City exec was good.

    Cons

    Small minded leaders, conflicting information, good ole boy network, no training, poor communication of company's strategy. I could go on and on but my advice is look somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what customer service is. Develop a consistent strategy that the employees can support. Invest in your staff.

    Pros

    The people were nice and friendly. It was easy to get alone with others. Everyone was willing to talk and communicate.

    Cons

    Low pay, which should be higher. There are better opportunities at other banks in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay.

    Pros

    great co-workers, laid back branch, standard banking products

    Cons

    "jump in and figure it out" is something that happens a lot. You can call the same department with the same question and get a different answer for each person you ask. There really needs to be standard training for all positions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, make opportunities available to employees regarding training

    Pros

    This is a financially sound community bank with a long history.

    Cons

    Complete lack of communication and appropriate training for new employees. It's kind of like "jump in and figure it out.....yourself".

    Advice to Management

    communication and spend some money on technology
