    Pros

    Flexible scheduling due to longer banking hours. Very accommodating to college students and willing to work around your school schedule.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement and poor incentives for selling products to customers. Company lacks the ability to create enthusiasm amongst employees.

    Advice to Management

    Create incentive plans that will benefit the employee working on the front lines in retail banking to improve productivity and enthusiasm within the company.

    Pros

    Monday through Friday schedule because of my location. volunteer opportunities with local organizations. There are opportunities to advance in my building because you may be able to change departmants

    Cons

    From my point of view the products that we offer don't really allow us to grow our deposit base. It is hard work because essentially you're competing with your coworkers and other branches for essentially the same clients. The products that get you the most points can be the hardest to come by, such as business account, services and credit cards. The location I'm at has its advantages and disadvantages.

    Pros

    You feel a lot of responsibility at the lowest level. You are in charge of yourself and your own work throughout the day.

    Cons

    I didn't experience much that stood out to me as a con. I enjoyed my time with NYCB until it was time for me to move on.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to just continue to do what youre doing. I had a great experiencewith the managers I worked with.
