    Pros

    Pay is very good, and benefits are good. Great people around you to work with.

    Cons

    If your boss is on one side of the country and you're on the other, then they try to determine your future and your performance, it's really a recipe for disaster (your disaster and the company's).

    Advice to Management

    Drive down the values that you hold and communicate, and then make sure they perform your values, i.e. treat all employees with respect and appreciation.

    With improvements in technology they are looking for more part-time employees a less full-time tellers.

    Pros

    There are decent choices. They offer 3 different heath care provider choices. The 401 k match dollar for dollar is up to 3%, then .50 on the dollar from above 3% up to 5%. The insurance choices are good.

    Cons

    Dental and vision leave a bit to be desired. All health and dental require a bi-weekly contribution on your part. I've had employers pay for all of the costs before.

    Good pay! Much more than any other same position at any other Retail bank in the area. As of 2014.

    Cons

    Every internal system or outside corporate department you will interact with is slow, old and archaic, compared to any other Retail Banking job you can ever work at.

    Pros

    Benefit, pay is ok. Colleague were generally good people.

    Cons

    Management is awful. Almost every move they make annoy otherwise productive employees. Good ones would leave and those left can't find other jobs. This jibes with colleagues who left the place and found better-managed places. I hope it's not just "grass is always greener" - and in this case given what I have seen in the last 3 years, I'd have to agree with those observations.

    Advice to Management

    Get a job.
