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

    I worked at TCF Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers 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!

    Cons

    Training 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.

    Pros

    Managers trust employees to make decisions based on their experience and expertise.
    Managemet is conscientous of a work life balance, and are flexible when necessary.

    Cons

    Extremely conservative culture in terms of adapting to and accepting new and different ideas
    Team cohesiveness is lacking in some departments; a small number of individuals often shoulder the bulk of the responsibility

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

    Cons

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Leadership 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 ManagementAdvice

    Overall 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
