    Pros

    Company promotes from within and it's easier to move up. The company does give you a fair chance to succeed in the job and there is a lot of positions within the company. If you're a business major then the company offers to help you with school while you're with them.

    Cons

    They change their main focus quite a bit and expect quite a bit of production that doesn't support the markets we're in. Sometimes the job can be quite stressful and with all the changes that happen so quickly, its easy to be left behind. The pay isn't very good compared to other companies

    Pros

    It's a good starter bank if you don't have any banking experience.

    Cons

    The management is horrible, I worked there for 2 years and went through 2 branch managers, the turnover is crazy, no one wants to stick around because the pay is way low compared to any other bank. It's all about sales and how you are going to reach them. They have you ask all of your family and friends to open accounts, after a while you run out of people to ask. If you don't reach goals they threaten you about your job.

    Advice to Management

    Help out your team instead of telling them your job is in jeopardy if you don't reach your sales goal.

    Pros

    The company is going through many changes and there is opportunity for those who want to affect change. Almost everyone is very nice to work with.

    Cons

    The pay is not great. You can make much more money by leaving and coming back then you can by working your way up.

    Advice to Management

    Reward loyalty and find a way to retain systems knowledge.

    Pros

    The departments are lean so top performers rise to the top. Lots of access to management and communications about company strategy. Strong work life balance.

    Cons

    Beyond the Director level, opportunities become more limited since there are few positions available. Most people rise through the ranks so there's not a lot of diverse thought leadership.


  9. Fine, overall a pretty good experience for entry-level.
