    Pros

    Decent flexibility when it comes to days off, decent hourly wage,

    Cons

    procedures constantly changing, with no warning. Scheduling is done weekly. There is no room for advancement, just seems like they give you more work with no raise.

    I worked at Talmer Bank and Trust full-time

    Pros

    Funding was available for needed projects
    Most people are hard workers who want to get the job done.
    Excellent HR department
    My direct manager was one of the best bosses I've ever had.

    Cons

    Time was a luxury. Be prepared to work hard, long hours.
    Many new people are brought in from senior management's previous companies. You will see a lot of people who worked for Capital Bancorp and Republic Bancorp.
    Work can be at a pace that sacrifices quality.
    Many people are in positions because they were from the original bank, despite their level of ability. (This has changed a bit over the past 2 years though for the better)
    As an employee who was brought in from a bank acquisition, I never felt like a true team member.
    If you are in an operational role, expect to have your smartphone with you and be able to respond to email 24/7. (though not explicitly required, most of management works at all hours of the day)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees up front, they are in for a lot of hard work. Then, reward them for their hard work. I know people who worked endless hours on integration/conversion projects and countless days away from their families who were rewarded with a $5000 bonus. Give these hard working employees a real bonus or some stock and you'll convey your appreciation much better.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with more respect, you have to give it to get it back.

    I have been working at Talmer Bank and Trust full-time (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!!

    I enjoy the people but the systems are out dated and the help lines don't always know how to fix your issue.
