    Not bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent benefits and mostly good people. Overall a pretty good place to work.

    ConsEmployee growth was pretty much a myth. Job opportunities far too often went to outside hires even when qualified applicants where in house. Far too often good people left the company because promotions could only be found outside the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to better engage employees.

    It's a job.

    Relationship Banker I (Current Employee) Lancaster, PA

    ProsNice people generally. They pay you.

    ConsLittle to no recognition for work done if it's not sales. Constantly changing goals and focus... literally every 6 weeks. Low wages, non competitive and minuscule increases.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
