    Pros

    Parkway is a community bank that focuses on the customer's needs. We sell based on what the customer needs or wants, we don't sell for the sake of the sale. I appreciate my manager and her guidance. Benefits are very good. Nice family-feel place. You get to know everyone here. Room for growth and advancement if you want to work for it. Great work-life balance. 38 hour work week.

    Cons

    Salaries are average...could be higher.

    Pros

    It's a job. I get a check when I'm supposed to. And it's currently holding me over until my new job starts. That's it.

    Cons

    The Monday and Friday schedules are way too long If you know the CEO personally you're pretty much set with the company. Pay is terrible. Turnover for this company is horrible because of the pay. You will rarely find help from any of the upper management if you have a question about anything. No one wants to assume responsibility for anything and no one likes to admit when they are wrong. Opportunities for advancement are few and far between and when they do come up the favorites are chosen and not people who have been working hard. An assistant branch manager was stuck and couldn't move on to another branch because no one wanted her to leave her current slow branch since she was already there. You have to work here for 10+ years to even be considered for something else.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the real reasons as to why the turnover rate is so ridiculous. Ask yourselves why an assistant manager for 18 years from Parkway can find a job as a BANKER at a different bank and make more there than she did here. The executives are not the people at the front line handling the customers. Treat your tellers and bankers with a little more respect and MAYBE you can have some retention with the company.

    Pros

    Good people, good hours, amazing benefits plan. The hours aren't bad either.

    Cons

    Pay is a little lower than big banks which can get a little frustrating but once you've been in it for a while it seems to balance itself out.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on the people that work for you, I loved working for Parkway

    Pros

    Good for your resume for the future. It was fun because of the people I worked with. It really depends on your teller group.

    Cons

    The pay wasn't that great- but I did get a nice deferred compensation package. If you stay 5 years you become vested.


  7. Need more communication on key issues at middle/ower levels.

    Pros

    Plenty of interaction with other coworkers. Proximity to home is good if you live in the NW suburbs.

    Cons

    Limited communication between upper management and other officers/staff on key issues.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication on key issues.

    Pros

    I was very flexible. They were able to work with my school schedule and allowed me to change it as needed.

    Cons

    The management was not proper and professional in the way they handled employee issues and discrepancies. Not the best work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees because beleive it or not they have some very relative feedback. They are the ones that interact with the clientele.

    Pros

    Some people I worked with were great. Original promotion was fair and had me to my career, that i'm not satisfied with. Some of the work was kinda easy.

    Cons

    Most of the people were fools. If you were no in there club, then you were outcasted. The wrong people ran the show.

    Advice to Management

    Get better people to run to company
