    Loan Officer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWe have so many channels to approve mortgages. There isn't a bank in New York with more options.

    ConsThe rates on our jumbo products usually lags the larger banks.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work!

    Good benefits, but not a good company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe bank offers good benefits, such as health, dental and eye
    care, as well as a 401K.

    ConsMiddle/District management in some of the financial centers lack leadership qualities and fail to foster a positive environment. They prefer to produce results through threats and intimidation. They care about sales, not the clients. They resemble playground bullies. There is no room for individuality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to upper management is to become more connected with the employees in their financial centers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Beware of office politics!

    Vice President (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsWell designed secure workplace. The management obviously takes a lot of pride in the appearance of their offices.

    ConsDisgraceful office politics in at least one division that would best be described as being a good ole boy social club.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire business unit leaders that have real management experience instead of promoting salesmen masquerading as managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Great place to work.

    Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSNB is all about personal service. This means that the other employees that work there are very personable and make the office experience enjoyable. I loved the team I was working with. The location could not have been better either, right in the heart of Manhattan.

    ConsYou must keep your jacket on at all times when the Chairman is around. The bank is a bit conservative. They could use new technology in the office as well. They still ink your hand for finger prints while going through the hiring process.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work.

    +3

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Great Neck, NY

    ProsUpper management was very welcoming and employees made an effort to make you feel at home. Questions and emails were always answered and everyone gave their input and assistance at all times.

    ConsWhile I was there in 2007-2009 the banking industry was walking on eggshells and the economy was a total mess. Layoffs and cuts to employee staff was happening left and right, so needless to say everyone was nervous about their job security. It seemed that they took this to heart and communication between management and employees became very poor. From what I hear from former co-workers still much has not changed and upper management is still pinching pennies and not knowing where to make cut backs to save an employees job.
