    I have been working at The Adirondack Trust

    Pros

    Stable, will not be let go, can be fun, community support, well respected company, management in certain departments are very flexible and understanding, 8-4:30 always

    Cons

    Low Pay (typically in lowest 25% percentile of field) with many employees on need based assistance, old-fashioned thinking, closed minded, no opportunity for advancement, Byzantine raise system (they actually total up the total of the exempt/hourly *albeit separately* and then approve a % raise over that and that's all thats allowed to go around, no matter how hard you may have worked), low morale as of late.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying people livable wages especially in some of the non-technical departments and morale may improve a bit the cost of living in this area is very high. Listen to your personnel and not the salesmen when making IT decisions.

    Pros

    The company feels much like a family and the position you work in is what you make it. If you treat others well and show interest in and attempt to learn and improve on whatever position you hold, they will treat you well. I highly suggest this company.

    Cons

    If you do not like banking or find it uninteresting then it may not be the company for you. Although they have a number of other divisions (like Insurance), if the financial industry in general is not what you are looking for then don't take a position here. If it is, it is one of the best community banks I have ever seen/worked for.

    I have been working at The Adirondack Trust

    Pros

    Easy
    Get to know customers
    Very community oriented, really there for Saratoga
    Involved in the community
    Friendly staff
    New 401k program

    Cons

    Changes happen every week. One day you'll be doing something and the next day that way is wrong and you have to learn a whole new way of doing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more. Also, create a management trainee program. Someone with a College degree should not be a teller making $9/hr. Make use of the talent you have.
