    I worked at Inland Bancorp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent staff with great experience - they staff appropriately and make people feel valued. The business model of the bank is a good one and the opportunities to grow within organization are for the mist part, excellent. They also naked an effort to build positive staff morale and keep people involved and informed.

    Cons

    Growing too fast and president picked favorites and gave them too much power

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let management do their jobs - some really good people with a good business model but president tended to ignore their advice

    I worked at Inland Bancorp part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people were probably the only thing that they had going for them.

    Cons

    Backwards management. They were all set o n sales and only hiring people who were like used cars salesmen. Upper management doesnt have a clue and they have unrealistic unattainable goals for everyone. They all need more education, especially in employee relations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit relying on sales so much. Your bank is not Chase Bank and you should not strive to be. Also don't pretend to be a community bank when you clearly are not. Focus more on customer service rather than selling a customer things they don't need. Ask the people who actually service the customers what is the best products for them. Stop trying to force so many issues.
