    Pros

    People were great. Benefits competitive. Size of bank provided lots of good experienced people to learn from.

    Cons

    Merger combined with economy created a few difficult years. Promotions were almost non-existent. Economic recovery coupled with new people bringing in "unbiased" feedback helped improve the work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Bank has now merged. Would advise making sure to view employees as assets and not expenses and let them know it. New management now in place should help.

    Pros

    Stable work enviroment. Strong, motivating leadership, truly lives by Mission, Vision and Core Values! What a refreshing company

    Cons

    Some systems (okay many systems) are behind the times, to say the least making growth and progress difficult

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to be out with the old and in with the new in the name of progress!

    Cons

    Processes are being put in place to mimic big banks operating style, yet the company lacks technology and efficiency to complete this process.

    Pros

    Fairly good benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Low pay, don't always hire from within, expect more than they are willing to pay for.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to advance within the company. Some people have been there for years and have not advanced as far as they could have with another company.

  10. Good place to work

    Pros

    Do not have someone constantly looking over your shoulder. You are trusted, respected, and expected to do your job. 401K match is attractive.

    Cons

    Company has not gotten over 2008 merger of equals, still an our bank vs. their bank attitude. Compensation is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Do the right things for StellarOne, not our bank or their bank. Be consistent bankwide. We are not ready to be a Wachovia.
