    Pros

    Honestly , I don't see any Pros . If you are looking for a career I would not recommend this place at all.

    Cons

    Terrible atmosphere. Management don't get along with the employees. No opportunity for growth whatsoever. Dead end job. High turn over . (The same positions are advertised all the time). Apply at your own risk.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend a total change of behaviour . Try a closer relationship with your employees to start with.

    I worked at People's United Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fairly good with benefits and work environment with friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    Transitions, layoffs, consolidations, closures, internal changes, and lack of promotions and compensation for the lower level (admin/branch) employees is unsatisfactory. Greed at the top (officers/managers/and tier after tier above) is rampant and openly known.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They should do what they can to retain and satisfy the long term employees to assist with business continuity due to the forward thinking of management. Too disruptive to customers when the bank changes and the long term employees leave too.

    I worked at People's United Bank

    Pros

    Friendly environment. Average/competitive salaries. Great communication. Lots of room for advancement. A handful of really great senior managers. Lots of learning opportunities. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Recently, they have been closing many traditional branches, in favor of "in-store" branches located in supermarkets. Unfortunately, these locations are open seven days and late hours. Also, in my opinion, they do not give a professional appearance like a traditional branch does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to read your market better. What is successful in Connecticut may not be successful elsewhere.
