    I worked at Heartland Financial USA full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Heartland was a great place to work. They cared about all of their employees at all of their banks, and it showed. I felt appreciated during my time with the company.

    Cons

    The pay was not as great as at other banks. However, there were sometimes bonuses at the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees a little better at the lower levels, and better use the staff you have so there is not so much turnover.

    I worked at Heartland Financial USA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers, health benefits, branch get-togethers

    Cons

    The company doesn't care about employees. They try to make it seem like they do, but it is a complete lie. They have no problem laying off people that have worked really hard for years. They have no problem demoting employees who are very valuable. Upper management in the mortgage department changes every year it seems like and each person has a different vision of how to run it. You have to work 2 years before receiving the company match for retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employees more.

    Pros

    They treat their employee's well, and they strive to hire from within. I enjoy working for them, and management cares about their employee's moral.

    Cons

    There are some departments that have stressful workloads, but management is working to correct these issues. Moral in the Roshek Building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue your efforts to raise employee moral- it really does matter to your employees.

    Pros

    Great office activities and contests like chili cook offs and volunteer days. Also lots of community involvement. Big company that owns lots of banks across the country.

    Cons

    there were some Management changes happening when I was working there. Also big buyouts of banks came with a lot of human resource work that wasn't the smoothest process

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
