Talmer Bank and Trust Reviews
“I actually worked for the company at a time when they bought out First Place Bank and as a result, I lost my job.”
Pros – First Place was a good place to work before the buy out, we have fun and worked well together and were all like family
Cons – A few crappy managers as always
Advice to Senior Management – Treat your employees with more respect, you have to give it to get it back.
Pros – Believe they know how to make money
Cons – They are getting ahead of themselves
Advice to Senior Management – Communicate
Pros – Location was close to home
Cons – Manager did not control long-time employees. They were allowed to do as they wish, blatantly disobey corporate rules, and treat employees rudely and with harassment. Family values were not important to this manager, as the main concern about was the bank, not the employees. This manager did not address serious issues brought up by some employees, " supposedly" referring junior management to the issues.
Advice to Senior Management – Take your job seriously. Corporate regulations and security issues are important, but if some employees are allowed to act inappropriately and rudely to fellow employees you will lose all your most efficient employees and Talmer Bank will be known as a bank where management is totally ineffective. Larger banks have failed for the same reasons!!
