Sterling Bancorp Reviews
Pros – We have so many channels to approve mortgages. There isn't a bank in New York with more options.
Cons – The rates on our jumbo products usually lags the larger banks.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep up the good work!
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – The bank offers good benefits, such as health, dental and eye
care, as well as a 401K.
Cons – Middle/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 Management – My advice to upper management is to become more connected with the employees in their financial centers.
Pros – benefits vacation work change women
Cons – the people the staff the workers too many fakes
“I have had no guidance, training, opportunities for growth or consistent management since day one.”
Pros – Benefits, large corporation, internal transfers
Cons – Turnover, buyout, no consistency in leadership, no guidance, no consideration of skill set to be of maximum use
Advice to Senior Management – Need department head with consistent management, expectations, training, insight, consideration of experience to direct to proper use, desire to help employees grow not just be a guinea pig
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Well designed secure workplace. The management obviously takes a lot of pride in the appearance of their offices.
Cons – Disgraceful office politics in at least one division that would best be described as being a good ole boy social club.
Advice to Senior Management – Hire 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
Pros – SNB 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.
Cons – You 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 Management – Keep up the great work.
“Sterling National Bank is very disorganized and loses alot of customers documents. Trust me, don't bank here”
Pros – Sterling Bank lets you get away with taking two hour lunches
Cons – loses customers documents, customers get bounced alot to different employees and get no satisfaction when phone call is over
Advice to Senior Management – wake up
Pros – nice working atmosphere very friendly staff
Cons – many hoops to jump through for a increase of salary
Advice to Senior Management – Immediate management was great, however difficult to rise up the ranks
Pros – Upper 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.
Cons – While 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.
