    Former Employee - Proposal Writer in Milwaukee, WI

    Pros

    There is definitely a pride around the bank's ethics, strong standing in the industry, and culture of service and kindness. The pay was also good, and there are opportunities to learn and grow if you're interested in the industry.

    Cons

    Senior Management oversight was lacking in the sense that no feedback was a solicited and incompetent middle management was free to abuse power and create an atmosphere of mistrust and absence of leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, be sure to reach out at least quarterly to the directs reporting to middle management--those of us toughing it out on the ground level nine to ten hours a day need to know that you care if our manager is effective, challenging, and pro-active. When we contact you with feedback. act on it--rather than waiting for several of us to quit due to management inefficacy.

    Pros

    Great selection of talent. Great rewards for exceptional sales. CEO is amazing and is the voice of the entire financial industry with the president of the united states.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other companies. Sales Sales Sales. You feel like just a number. Managers cannot be managers....they have to be bankers, tellers, small business specialists, ops, vault, atm .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have small business specialists for a reason...don't make managers do it...it takes away from coaching and doing actual managerial things
