    An unbelievable stretch of being part of something bigger than a bank, bigger than self. It was a great place to work.

    I worked at Johnson Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Even as my job was eliminated, they treated me with respect and generosity of spirit.

    Cons

    Having experienced an extreme level of family and trust going in all directions, it was difficult to feel what was so special return more toward the usual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How you achieve goals is as important as the goals you achieve.

    I have been working at Johnson Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is the most supportive, friendly company I've ever worked for or with. Co-workers and management truly want to see you succeed and will bend over backwards to help you get there.

    The company not only supports volunteerism in communities, it celebrates and participates in it. Most of the volunteer work that is done on behalf of both the company and the Johnson family goes unrecognized. It is refreshing.

    The leadership is actively moving the company forward with new technology and looking for areas of innovation and operational efficiencies.

    SC Johnson employee store is, of course, wonderful!

    Lots of encouragement from the company towards wellness, great rewards system, on-site fitness at the corp office, reduced club memberships and more.

    Cons

    Little flexibility in work hours and environment for those that don't need to be client facing, not as progressive as other companies. Every other company I've worked for has offered telecommuting or other flexible hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As we are moving towards being a more progressive company, consider adopting flexible working environments for those who will benefit from it, it improves creativity and loyalty. Some have long commutes and are happy to make them because we value Johnson Bank, it would be nice to know you trust us to work from home too so we can balance time with family too.

    Pros

    Privately held company is part of the SC Johnson Family. Has name recognition.

    Cons

    No clear vision from local management.
    Policies and practices from Wisconsin do not necessary align with Arizona Marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Implement effective local management.

    I have been working at Johnson Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Salary is pretty good for someone just starting out who does not have a degree. Awesome co-workers. Relaxed environment at the branch level.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for growth- very hard to move to other departments from what I've heard. Has recently become veryyyyy sales oriented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease up on the sales tactics. Calling customers out of the blue to "offer" them a service seems pushy. Besides, that was never what Johnson Financial was about. We're supposed to be here for our clients in times of need. Not push a new product onto them at every chance we get.

    Pros

    This job is not difficult. There is plenty of down time. The company itself is a great company!

    Cons

    As a Teller you are expected to do way more than you are paid for. you have make a set amount of referrals to business partners every month. Also you will never get promoted unless you meet these goals for at least 18 months straight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engage associates to measure culture and take tangible and measurable action steps. Accountability should be a two-way street, not only required by the associates.

    I worked at Johnson Financial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Good benefits. Access to company store, workout facility and daycare.

    Cons

    If you aren't in the "sorority" your life will be miserable. People that actually do the work don't get recognized. Instead, those that ACT like they work, succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have lost a lot of good people in recent years due to the cons listed above. Analyze the trends.
