    Pros

    The company treats employees well and fairly. The company has an excellent reputation and I am proud to work here.

    Cons

    Typical negative of working for a very large corporation. You are unknown and not considered a part of the sucess of the company. Despite what management says.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally a good job, however lower level employees have little say or influence in how their job is done.

    Pros

    They offer very nice benefits such as discounts on many stores and items, 401K, health and dental insurances. The company has many job opportunities depending on your career path. This company has a very good work and life balance.

    Cons

    Transitioning into a new role is a bit difficult and requires a lot of effort. You need approval on some ways you want to invest your own money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improvement is needed in the training of new employees to understand the overview of the bank and how and the progression path of their career.

    Pros

    High talent. This company can attract a lot of new talent easily based on its industry reputation. If you have a fairly new manager 2-5years in their role, you will have a great learning and inclusive experience

    Cons

    There are a lot of people/managers (Bear heritage) that stay in there role to long. They become micro managers and expect you to know what they know in 6months to a year. They are very bitter people to work with

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive mobility needs to be encouraged and addressed to managers in their role for 10yrs+ to foster fresh thinking and new direction

    Pros

    With such a large company you have lots of opportunity to move around. Great place to start a career and figure out what you want to do. The culture is fairly young and encourages work-life balance.

    Cons

    If you are hourly you are expected to work long hours without necessarily being compensated for your time. Bureaucracy can be a very large issue and dealing with their many legacy systems can be very frustrating.
