    Good

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Transportation Alliance Bank

    Pros

    Great and smart people to work with. The pay is not bad. The work is rewarding. Overall, a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The benefits are not the best. The paid time off is horrible, and practically nonexistent. Training of new employees needs a lot of improvement. You're basically on your own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd consider improving the training and benefits, especially the paid time off.

    I have been working at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Freedom to take care of your job. Flexible scheduling, reasonable commute times and distances, employees have the opportunity to interact with and learn from Sr. Management on a regular basis. Lots of opportunity to learn new things about an interesting industry.

    Cons

    Communication between different business groups is not great. Some of the groups are very difficult to work with and do not seem to know or understand who their internal customers are or how to serve them. The company promotes information sharing but there is a significant lack of transparency to important information about the condition of the bank and decisions being made.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to treat your employees as an investment rather than the bank's largest expense; examples to refer to are Starbucks and Costco, you will likely see and feel improvements in the work environment.

    I have been working at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Amazing talented staff - great to work with
    Unique product offering
    Promotes training of employees to help them be successful at their jobs
    Seeks employees' input to try to help company culture/morale

    Cons

    A rough past has created a large hurdle to overcome for employee morale
    PTO - Benefits - Compensation all lack compared to workforce
    Lack of career path growth and limited opportunities
    FDIC blamed for everything instead of owning decisions
    CYA mentality

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management seems afraid of conflict. Instead of coaching and helping an employee to grow and perform, they tend to take away abilities to do a job preventing performing employees from accomplishing their jobs efficiently.
    Plan before implementing instead of implementing and then plan.

    I have been working at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time

    Pros

    Some lower-level employees are decent, location isn’t so bad

    Cons

    Managers don’t know how to manage, and have no experience doing so

    The bank tries to implement useless tactics to involve employees to boost morale, when it would just be easier to give raises and provide better benefits

    Bank-wide and even inter-departmental communication is shifty

    Employees are sitting around, talking and ‘having fun’ all day instead of focusing on work, and managers couldn’t care less

    Distribution of work is unfair, the more you can do, the more will be handed to you. So hardworking employees often get significantly more work, often for less pay

    Some people have worked here for up to 5 years with hardly any raise at all, while the brown-nosers have been promoted up, and have been given raises (and most of the promoted people are not as qualified)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find ways to keep decent employees around, promote better employees based on qualifications and not favoritism. The bank's business ideas are great, but the future success ultimately will depend on keeping competent employees satisfied so they stick around.

    Pros

    there are lots of nice people who work very hard

    Cons

    If you aren't one of the chosen favorites you can't move up. It feels like they don't care about all employees just some employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start annual increases in pay for everyone - not just management and favorites - it would go long way to improve morale and help us keep up with higher cost of living.

    I worked at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have some great employees at lower levels. The owner seems nice and the new president seems okay too. Benefits aren't as bad as they used to be.

    Cons

    No communication between management to employees. Badly damaged corporate culture and depressing place to work. Good employees are punished because management is constantly changing expectations. Low pay and raises don't go through even when manager promised a specific percent raise. No room for career growth and no cross-training available. Employees are overworked and stressed especially for the lower-than-average pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the owner-know your managers and how they are managing. Stop firing
     best employees and managers. Make sure your managers are qualified and able to manage rather than just giving the job to the person standing there after you fired your best, hard working and honest employees. To managers-adopt an open door policy without retaliation. Please listen without punishing your employees for speaking up.
