Worked diligently,multitasked, never late and was reliable. Never felt appreciated from Department Head.

Senior Associate Wire Transfer Operator (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Israel Discount Bank of New York full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGood medical benefits, 401k plan, great employees

ConsDepartment was always under pressure and performed with the least amount of errors throughout the bank. Bank needs completely think things through, before eliminating an employees position without thinking what dilemma they are putting on the department, not to say what will happen to an employee who has given his dedication and loyalty to the organization without giving them the consideration and place them in another position in order to finish out their full Retirement.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed leaders that understand the complete job functions their employees are performing on day to day and need to pitch in when department is understaffed. Need department Management to be able to listen to their workers and not continuously threatening them their positions. Overall, needs better leadership and management to be involved, rather then sit back and take no approach. Finally employees need extensive training to perform their functions with precise skills.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Good people but everything done on the cheap

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Israel Discount Bank of New York full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat people and functions like a family with all that implies

ConsManagement is always nickle and diming. The parent company in Israel has no idea how things function in the US so they are always cutting bonuses

Advice to Senior ManagementHave a strategic vision that emphasises the company's competitive advantages

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

What a nice internship!

Intern - Compliance (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Israel Discount Bank of New York as an intern for less than a year

ProsLoved the work atmosphere and the management was quite fantastic. The work paid $15 which for an internship entering college is quite great.

ConsIn compliance, things can get quite boring. You're essentially typing in the same things over and over into a computer but what do you expect as an intern? Beats the heck out of being unpaid!

Advice to Senior ManagementMore group outings!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
