Great Place to work!

Teller (Current Employee)
Sarasota, FL

I have been working at Synovus Bank

ProsGreat hours
Great benefits
Love my co-workers, easy to get along with
No pushy sales goals
Great pay in comparison to other institutions

ConsThere really aren't any true downsides to working here. The only complaint I could have is that the branch is slow, but it is also in competition with other large institutions around the area, so that is understandable.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe tellers and Bankers are the front lines and know more about the customers, so listen up more. Don't get defensive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great people, good place to work.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Synovus Bank full-time

ProsGreat people to work with.
Nice atmosphere -- people help each other.
Large enough to be effective in the marketplace.
Strong commercial lender.

ConsNeeds to be more forward thinking.
They lack a clear, cohesive strategy.
Feels as though they are stuck in the 1980's.

Advice to Senior ManagementYour strategy may have worked at one time but it is now outdated and will be a hindrance to your competitiveness going forward.

Box of idiots

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Synovus Bank full-time

ProsThere are none; plain and simple.

ConsNearly everyone there has been there for 40 years and the bank keeps them out of the goodness of their heart; which is admired but this bank is digging a grave for itself.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove the old-timers out of management slots and get some intelligent life into your institution.

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

Not a grat place

Data Entry (Current Employee)
Sumter, SC

I have been working at Synovus Bank

ProsBenefits are the vacation and holidays off as well as having health, vision, dental, and life insurance. The prices of the insurance is good and due to the vacation and holidays, I don't work a whole year.

ConsDownsides is that Synovus Management doesn't really care about their employees or customers. All they care about is the bottom line and how to save money. Also, they are very low paying.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to treat the customers and employees better. Give the people that actually do the work better pay.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
