    Float Teller (Former Employee)
    Fredericksburg, VA

    ProsSolid community bank looking to treat customers well. Lots of branches so great for customer service positions.

    ConsHours started to get to long for customer service. Not enough float tellers to fill needed roles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep taking care of the employees.

    No support from area manager or bank in new markets!!

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)
    Harrisonburg, VA

    ProsNo sales pressure!!! Great people in some of the branches. Bank has potential.

    ConsNo sales pressure! No help from area manager or market exec! Bad training in branch! No lending training on how to sell to customers! If you don't speak up you will do well! Worst turn over I have ever seen in Shenandoah Valley market. Never fully staffed! Staff that stay are not appreciated! No career development! Area manager gossips with staff!

    Advice to Senior ManagementMUST change to be successful outside Richmond. Middle managers and up have no idea what makes a branch successful. RESHUFFLE management!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Oh how badly run!

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)
    Winchester, VA

    ProsGood staff in some branches. Good rep in Richmond area. GREAT potential if better managed.

    ConsShenandoah Valley Market is run horribly! Area management has no idea how to manage people. Staff in branches are very demotivated. Turn over is unbelievable, one branch has been through 3 whole sets of staff at a branch and the manager is still there!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to staff about area managers! You are wasting a great opportunity if you let the current situation continue. Great products and great set up, but could be doing so much better if you had a better understanding what was going on, in the branches.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pomotions are unlikely unless you have a degree.

    Loan Representative (Former Employee)
    Bowling Green, VA

    ProsThey allow for time off for Doctors appointments and other family business. There are great benefits. The pay is fair compared to other banking institutions. If you were out of sick time they would let you leave early for an appointment and then you could make up the time missed the following day.

    ConsSome employees have worked there for a long time and it is hard to get promoted due to this. It seems that if you have a degree then you are more likely to be promoted. I had over 15 years experience but it did not seem to get me the position that I wanted with this company

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo be trustworthy and respect every person as a working and valuable part of the institution.

    Oh the middle management!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat in other areas. Has great potential

    ConsManagers want to succeed but the area manager is lacking in experience, talent, man management skills, understanding of the sales processes, coaching and motivation. Could be wonderful place to work but no cohesion between team and middle management.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ok company

    Branch Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsAdvanced community bank. Technology is great!

    ConsRunning a drawer and managining branch sales at the same time. Aisle time is a little worrisom in the in-store branches too. Great hours for the customers but bad hours for the emloyees who work at in-store branches from 9-7 M-F and 9-2 on weekends. Open non-major holidays: MLK Day, Presiden't Day, etc. (all in-store branches). Expensive benefits package if you have a family.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease incentive

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
