  1. A satisfying work experience but little room for growth. My great boss is what has kept me here for so long.

    I have been working at The Bancorp full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company has grown steadily in the past 5 years and shows no signs of stopping.

    Cons

    Very small annual increases. The "economy" excuse was used for too many years in my opinion. The company is obviously growing and thriving but that didn't seem to trickle down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the company infrastructure to accommodate the growth. Pay more attention to better raises.

    I worked at The Bancorp full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fun working environment; people cared about you--good benefits too. I enjoyed going to work each day, and felt respected.

    Cons

    Growth and acquisitions move a little fast, and then much catch up time is needed to re-smooth out operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in on-going industry education.

    I worked at The Bancorp

    Pros

    Benefits and salary are excellent.

    Cons

    I was told I was hired because "the higher ups told us we had to hire a third person". I basically answered phones, that's it. I asked constantly for work to do, asked my co-workers if I could help them with anything every day. One co-worker was on the phone screaming and cursing on the phone in the open office space. The other employee was constantly lying to management, lying to her co-workers, playing people against each other, and texting on her cell phone under her desk all day, plus going into the hallway to take personal calls on her cell throughout the day. The supervisor discussed employees with other employees behind their backs, acting like a pal instead of a boss. I did everything and anything that was asked of me, was always respectful and professional, and was an excellent employee. Clear out of the blue, I am told I am being terminated. The reason? None. Just because they "don't have to give a reason in the first 90 days. We just decided to do this." Not once was I talked to about any problems whatsoever. Not once did anyone address any concern with me at all. Just, "We can terminate for no reason, so we are." Timesheets were also altered to avoid paying overtime, and worked-through lunches were not paid. Very distasteful, very unprofessional, very disappointing company for which to work.
