    Former Employee - Credit Analyst in Chicago, IL

    I worked at MB Financial full-time (less than an 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 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 as an intern (less than an 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.

    Mismanaged and poor treatment of employees

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at MB Financial

    Pros

    Some what routine working hours.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as resources rather than as people. There is very little effort to grow employees or build their strengths. Very conservative culture where feedback is not welcome. Many employees are very unhappy but do not have an outlet to address their concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to giving and receiving feedback. Employees are people and not numbers. Take a closer look at how managers' styles and ensure that employees are being treated fairly.

    Pros

    Company is awesome and benefits are wonderful.

    Cons

    Worst managers and they push you to get accounts no matter how. I am a new employee and they treated me very bad. All the management team is connected inside. I was performing good when hired after my probation period they put me on probabtion one more time because they want me to get fired or look for new job. They need accounts all the time I think I made a worst choice by selecting to work with this bank. Overall this is not a good company when it come to retail side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plz hire good managers and asst. managers who understand the staff.

    Although pay is low, it was a nice place to work. Nice culture committee efforts, monday morning ceo call nice touch.

    Cons

    Wow. Bringing over all that is bad from Cole Taylor, Cole Taylor had all sorts of skeletons in their closet, about to become MB s problem. Many of the Cole Taylor management team taking over key roles and ruining key departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If CT management team did a lousy job with Cole Taylor, why would you put them in charge? Mood has changed dramatically, lots of unhappy employees looking to leave.
