    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to advance
    Friendly and very helpful colleagues in more professional level positions

    Cons

    Low pay
    Poor lower level management/supervision
    Absurdly high turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your front-line workers (retail) better to retain the gifted individuals you either lose to competition or to a better job within the company. Customer service is more than just an empty phrase.

    I have been working at IBC Bank

    Pros

    As a college student working towards a degree in Finance, I was looking for the right place to start at. My original plan was to gain the experience necessary to move on up to another company. Change of plans - I'm here to stay. The things I have learned at the bank have definitely helped me get through school. From banking terminology to legal procedures, I've had the opportunity of, not only learning, but applying these skills on a day-to-day basis.
    A great plus is the fact that you are given endless opportunities to advance within the company.
    All in all, it's a fun working environment and management will always welcome you with open arms. Got a problem? They're willing to work with you 100% and will go to great lengths to help you find a solution. All customers and employees are well taken care of.

    Cons

    no complaints for the last 4 years I've been employed there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing, providing the IBC Experience and encouraging a "We Do More" attitude

    Ability to move up. Great profit sharing plan. Training is awesome. The environment in the branches can be stressful but fun

    Pros

    Will give you an oppertunity where other banks will just look the other way.

    Cons

    Management refused to listen to staff and their concerns, as well as considering not setting up people to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff and actually hear what is important to them, understand they are an investment not a cost to the company. Also have trainers that are successful sales people recently, not people who were successful 10+ years ago.
