    I have been working at Provident New York Bancorp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people that work at the bank are very nice. They are always friendly, helpful and willing to pitch in and share their expertise on a project

    Cons

    Provident is a community bank trying to be a regional bank so it's going through some growing pains with employees, vendors and clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The strategy for growth is a good one but recognize where you are currently and the reality of what you need to do to accomplish where you want to go

    Pros

    Expanding footprint; Pending merger appears to complement both bank's businesses.

    Cons

    Unfair treatment, employees motivated by fear and not by a positive environment. Upper management tries to improve morale by having pizza and ice cream days but everyone knows it is a smokescreen and more of a token than real effort to make things better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Watch out for negative effects of improper employee treatment

    I have been working at Provident New York Bancorp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great training, when there was new things to be learned. I took advantage of training classes and potential growth.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional, the staff was very young. There was no potential to grow. I would never bank there. They was once provident bank. Now there M&T. That says a lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need more training than the tellers. My manager was dumb as a door n
    Knob. She relayed on the tellers to do her work. And I am a true believer that its not what you know it's who you know because she should have never had that position very unhealthy work environment.

    I have been working at Provident New York Bancorp full-time

    Pros

    Provident has been transforming itself in the past year or so to take a more agressive stance towards sales and customer service. Teamwork is encouraged and everyone is friendly. Results are coming thorugh and the Street is recognizing this by being able to raise capital easily as well as getting positive ratings from analysts. I believe we are in more bigger and better things from the bank. Customer products and services are top notch and the bank which inlcudes management is very customer centric.

    Cons

    Could look into expanding ATM network by joining an ATM network like Allpoint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look into better employee engagement at the lower ranks. Maybe by having a quarterly meeting with all bank staff recognizing goal makers as well as any news, plans, promotions, new employees, etc. This will make all employees feel like they are in touch.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly. There is a lot of room for growth within the company. Overall a good experience.

    Cons

    Teamwork is not always encouraged. Sometimes people just end up doing their own thing. This could be a con people but maybe not for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage more teamwork. Give more incentives for completing work. Ask for employee feedback to see how everything is going.
