    Pros

    Great benefits.
    Exceptional training & availablity of classes to take.
    Company values inline with my own.
    Great company culture IF you are working at Rosemont location

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance.
    Mgmt expects branch employees to network during time off.
    Hard to be promoted within.
    Upper mgmt out of touch with location outside their office doors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For retail banking, management needs to decide on direction of getting and retaining customers.
    Bank @ work program bleeds money & doesn't not retain enough clients. (That's my raise I have yet to get)

    I have been working at MB Financial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a paycheck
    close to home
    nice community
    near shopping
    near resturants

    Cons

    I did not like the fact that the tellers had to sell, and I felt that little by little, we were less of tellers and more telemarketers, and I HATED the fact that our Regional Manager, (who is no longer with the company) referred to us as order takers when we did not make our sales. I eventually had to leave the company for personal reasons

    Also, I did not like that managers in our office played favorites to the "younger" employees woo often came to work hung over, Ion Saturdays, I watched when one girl, came in late, and hung over, running back and forth to the bathroom to throw up, and she was late everyday and nothing was done to her, and also some of the employees would come in on Saturday inappropriately dressed,

    When we had certain managers, they thought it was funny to play mean pranks on a few employes, one went so far as to lead one of the ladies, that our branch ws closing, she would have to be transferred to a branch some 30 miles away from her home, and also she would have to take banker classes as there were not going to be anymore tellers, and if she did not pass the class she would be terminated. just mean pranks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be very selective on the managers and emplorees

    I worked at MB Financial full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees are good people that care about more than just making money, Work/Life balance, Reputation, Community Impact, Volunteer Opportunities, Employee Benefits (loan forgiveness, tuition reimbursement)

    Cons

    Pay is low for a Chicago junior banker, Career Advancement, promotions, bank's approach to lending is too conservative (miss out on good opportunities because unwilling to think beyond simple ratios and numbers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to identify high performers early, and provide proper incentive and career advancement for them to stay

    I worked at MB Financial as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company Culture is very good. Everyone makes an effort to get to know you and help you out. I got to work with many different departments and many different individuals. My supervisors were very helpful and knowledgeable.

    Cons

    It would be beneficial to have more of a mentorship experience for the summer. More chances to get to know fellow interns would make the experience better.
