    Great Company to work for, would probably be more successful if so much time wasn't wasted on micro-micro management.

    Pros

    The company in general tries to promote employees from within. They offer a lot of opportunities to learn and grow as a person and employee.

    Cons

    Although I understand the need for some limited micro management, the practice has become a burden to many of the employees to the extent that it is using valuable time that could be put to much better use.

    Advice to Management

    Back off on some of the micro management.

    I worked at KeyBank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small deal teams within the non-industrial groups so lots of autonomy. The work life balance is excellent relative to other banks.

    Cons

    There is a lot of pitching vs active deals so you don't learn as much. In addition, there is a lot of beaurcracy if you are in Headquarters

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at KeyBank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No pros at all in my opinion

    Cons

    Everything about the job is not what they tell you...stay away from the business banking area and tge CRM role

    Advice to Management

    Figure out who the manager will be, and lower the ridiculous expectations and the joke of a commission plan that comes with the role so it can be more appealing to real sales people and you won't have everyone leaving to go to a real job instead of the joke that this one is

    I worked at KeyBank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Training is exceptional, and benefits were excellent. They love to promote from within and offer tons of opportunities to cross train and move into other departments. Even though they are a big bank the teams are very much like a second family. Managers are accessible from all lines of business and everyone is very approachable.

    Cons

    The pay is mid to low end, and raises were minimal.
