    Best job ever

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat salary and bonus structure, good management and work atmosphere. Free lunch during end of month.

    ConsSometimes conflicts between what inside management wants and what outside account execs want. Puts the employee in the middle.

    Great Place to Work

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Downers Grove, IL

    ProsFremont was a great place to work and the pay was exceptional. Had a good support staff and the team structure was effective. Good benefits and management style allowed people to perform at their best.

    ConsThe normal dysfunction of a large publicly traded bank.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify and manage cash before the whole house of cards falls...oh, too late for that...

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

    The retail banking side of the company is NOT the same as the lending side

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Laguna Hills, CA

    ProsThis is one of the only companies that truly values employees. They spared no expense when it came to company picnics, employee appreciation days, etc. Benefits were great. The company strongly believed in a work-life balance. Another thing that was great was that the company was really into community service.

    ConsThere was not much growth because a lot of the people working in the branches had been with the company and had no desire to leave. Since the company didn't open any new branches there was no way to move up because there were so many people already waiting in line.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHopefully the new commercial banking business model doesn't negatively impact the savings and loan model that the company once had. That's what separated it from the others.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    **POOR LEADERSHIP**

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company was led by a group of greedy individuals. Management was hired based on who you know and not your abilities. Hence the fall of the company.

    ConsAll employees were led to believe this company was safe and secure. We were pushed and proded to do a good job to be led into a "slaughter house" so to speak.

    Advice to Senior Managementwe ultimately lost our jobs because CEO/Presidents/Regional Managers were greedy. Then sold off millions of dollars in stocks, which made the value crash, just in timefor us to in turn get screwed again when we tried to cash out our stocks that were once worth retirement amounts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
