    I have been working at Heartland Bank

    Pros

    Extremely flexible, ability to work across all levels of the company, willing to let you take on projects outside of your job duties

    Cons

    Going through some growing pains, somewhat disorganized because top management is still learning how to cope with a growing organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep checking in with your lower level employees. They're making your day-to-day business work. Be willing to address issues of office politics

    I have been working at Heartland Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The coworkers are great everyone is nice. Getting holidays and Sundays off is one of the only bonuses.close to home, many branches

    Cons

    They have you do multiple jobs with no pay raise and when you do get raise it is around $.05 for the year with increasing responsibilities and work. No recognition for good work. Mo wonder they are always hiring!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises to your employes when they go from RB 1 to RB2 or RB3. No raise for retail leads either. Pay your employees and you would not have such a high turn around

    I worked at Heartland Bank part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company (Love Holdings) has fun parties and events around the holidays, but not much fun going on in banking.

    Your experience at the bank relies heavily on who your co-workers are.

    Training was very helpful.

    I did like that managers rarely admitted fault when customers were in the wrong.

    Managers take sexual harassment and hostile work environments seriously.

    Performance reviews are helpful, but not much is done coaching wise.

    Cons

    Tellers are frequently left to blame for things that operations, or branch managers should have checked over.

    This industry is heavily regulated, so brace yourself for the mind numbing compliance.

    Prepare to get yelled at by customer's when they are at fault.

    The mortgage division was a pain to deal with.

    Even though training was very helpful, the company seems to change the rules on what is "ok" in operations, and what is not "ok" without much warning.

    When people were promoted, the pay increase was marginal.

    Banking people love their titles.

    Used outdated computer software, and machines. I frequently wanted to re-enact that scene from Office Space.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unless you are a branch manager, you feel like a drone.
