    TCF is a decent place to work, but there is quite a bit of turnaround at the Colorado branches.

    Banking Sales Representative II (Former Employee) Littleton, CO

    ProsCoworkers were always friendly and helpful, especially after I finished the two week training. Since branch staff is small, we got to be kind of like a little family!

    ConsTraining was two weeks long but I feel that it didn't really prepare me for the branch as well as it probably should have. Selling accounts is required, but very difficult.

    Pretty good place

    Analyst (Current Employee) Wayzata, MN

    ProsPretty good work pace (not too busy nor too slow). Encourages & reimburses further training and education. Overall fairly friendly culture.

    ConsCulture includes some odd quirks, but that could be limited to my department. Nothing major.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work; some regionals need leadership training or give them the boot.

    Assistant Sales Manager (Current Employee) Livonia, MI

    ProsFamily atmosphere, wonderful employees, and most of all wonderful customers.

    ConsLeadership skills are lacking with regional manager; some regional managers think they're infallible; fi you're not the "right" person you're out. Training should be on-going in a manner that ensures mastery. Slow to new technology. I remember the quote -I'm para-phrasing, "we will not do internet banking." Guess what, TCF Bank now has internet banking. Thank the greedy ne'er-do-wells on Wall Street and smart legislation for curbing their appetite for overdraft fee revenue. They would never have changed if it weren't that. What a shame that government regulation

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall a great place to learn about banking, to work, and prove your mettle about achieving performance goals. Just make sure you figure out who your regional manager is and their reputation. The dumb ones offer no help and will set you up to fail. The smart ones know that failure is something that happens and will help you develop a pathway to succeed. Enjoy

    Great people, okay company

    Teller (Former Employee) Coon Rapids, MN

    ProsI had fun working with the people at my branch and had a great manager, there were lot's of opportunities to move up within the company

    ConsTCF is very sales heavy and pushes it's goals very hard on its employees, I didn't feel as if they always did the right thing for the customer, it was mostly about their profits rather than their customers or employees

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorry more about your employees and customers rather than your paychecks!

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
