    I worked at Fulton Financial

    Pros

    Fulton Bank was a great place to work, the staff that I worked was friendly and very accommodating. Fulton is definitely a family atmosphere.

    Cons

    The only down side that I found was my ability to move on within the company. There was a lot of waiting for the right position to open up. In the end the wait was too long and it was time for me to move on, although I did gain a great deal of experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I appreciate the atmosphere and "family" type community, but it might be going too far. There is a lot of favoritism which makes it difficult to make it in to any other depatrment.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Total compensation is low for expected work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the recent change in senior management was a positive for the company. Right now I do not have any advice for senior management.

    Fulton has what it feels like working for a big family. People are very friendly and helpful. Senior management are very approachable. Very clear guidelines on job responsibilities and lots of opportunity to advance within the company.

    Cons

    People are too nice to offer suggestions on improvement needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the company needs to be a little more aggressive in its style.

    Pros

    They are very interested in you as a person, not just a worker drone. Competitive pay and benefits. Lovely working environment.

    Cons

    The cons in any sort of customer based services are of course the customers, some times. We have a mostly older customer base and a lot of them are awnry.

    I have been working at Fulton Financial

    Pros

    The people are wonderful and the hours and schedule are both very favorable. Both regional and company wide mamnagement are both very personable and don't seem to be affected by their positions. The company remains customer and community oriented despite growth and expansion along the eastern seaboard,

    Cons

    The pay is in the lower eschelon of the industry which is very unfortunate. The financial industry as a whole is very "what have you done for me lately" which can turn a stellar tenure with a few bad days into a negative review which is both physically and mentally taxing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get a handle on who an employee is by more than there yearly review, as looking only at that can lead to the promotion of consistantly adequate employees rather than exceptional employees with one or two larger mistakes.

    • Company is run by regulators, compliance and legal departments
    • Upper management "out-of-touch" with employees
    • Reputation in community beginning to sour

    Compensation and opportunities for personal growth really need to improve.

    I have been working at Fulton Financial (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    generous paid time off, ease of moving among departments within the corporation, tuition reimbursement (with subsequent time commitment required), senior executives very approachable, low turnover, especially for those who have never worked elsewhere.

    Cons

    Management, even at the senior level are generally unqualified and entitled. Some management have been there so long, some since fresh out of undergrad college, that there is a significant resistance to change and new ideas. Closed-minded, inexperienced outside of Fulton, management. There are many employees who are higher educated and have more outside, broad experience who will struggle with advancement since middle management has it made and would struggle to find anything outside of this company, hence why turnover is low. If it affects the bottom line, even if it is correct and generates long term improvement, it is a no-go. Don't think out of the box here, that may involve time and money. It's not about quality of work, it's about how quickly you can get it done. Pay is ok, but not comparable to industry competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay connected to business units and know where your corporate risks lie. The regulators do. Stagnant management equals mediocre work and product.
