  1. Nice family owned, publicly traded bank.

    I worked at Republic Bank & Trust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Republic Bank and Trust is not like the "Too Big To Fail" behemoth banks that are out there. You are treated as a person.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is that it takes a long time for advancement opportunities to come around.

    Advice to Management

    Promote the right people

  2. I enjoyed the company, they really promoted from within

    Pros

    Good people, Good location, decent compensation.

    Cons

    Boring: Before this gets written off, it's not the bank's fault that it's a boring place to work. Online banking really made the bank locations useless for most people.

    Pros

    The company culture is really nice. The upper management seems to care about the employees (for the most part)

    Cons

    The population in the company is mainly a bunch of conservatives who seem to be living in their own little world at times. They can be very hard to connect with, at times even seeming unwilling to connect with anyone not in their "group".

    Advice to Management

    Take some real time to get to know all aspects of the company. I feel that management should have at the very least, a general idea of what one job duty does and know quite a few of their tasks/ways in which they operate.

  6. Political!

    Pros

    Local company. Good pay and benefits. Liked the job and the duties of the job.

    Cons

    I feel they need to support working moms better.

    Advice to Management

    Change your upper management. They are not considerate at all.

    Pros

    A nice community to be a part of. Loyalty to employees when consistent hard work and effort are demonstrated. Decent benefit package. Principles and values clearly displayed, strong culture.

    Cons

    Salary levels are low to start and don't grow much. Not a lot of upward mobility, slow to climb.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment where people feel more valued by what they earn. Offer more bonus opportunities.

    Pros

    We treat our customers with care, courtesy, and respect. There is also a strong presence of encouragement from the managers in the mortgage department, but not in the retail banking department.

    Cons

    Education & college degrees are NOT valued at this company. Who you know and years of job experience are the only things valued.

    Advice to Management

    Beg your executives for a greater salary budget. You need stronger hiring power. The atmosphere is great in many departments, but it is extremely hard to raise a family with the salaries you provide.

  10. Easy to get your foot in the door, hard at times to get noticed but if you do, could be rewarding.
