    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fayetteville, WV

    Pros

    Lots of room to advance if you're aggressive about it. Easy access to almost any level of employee if you have a problem.

    Cons

    Held on to old/cheap ways of doing business. Reluctant to upgrade. Reluctant to equip people well. Cheap was better than good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start spending money on keeping good employees. When you upgrade, upgrade to a system that is actually sufficient. Trust me, it'll keep you from having to upgrade twice.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Chantilly, VA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chantilly, VA

    Pros

    Casual Dress Code - That's about it

    Cons

    Cheap
    Lacking Communication
    Resistance to Change
    Old Technology
    HORRIBLE BENEFITS
    Incompetent Management Staff
    No Feedback on Performance
    Bias Treatment of Employees
    Unpaid Lunch Break
    Not Many Promotional Opportunities
    Deceiving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so cheap! If you're going to brag about how well the bank is doing in terms of revenue, then maybe you should ante up for some technology that was made in the new millennium - or at least something newer than GREEN SCREENS from the 80s, and also maybe pay your employees more, or invest in a health insurance plan that actually covers something medical. A better communication of an employees performance is HIGHLY needed - as nobody ever seems to know how they're doing. THERE IS ALSO NO TRAINING GIVEN!

    Decent benefits, but poor pay, coworkers, and hours.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    The work isn't hard. If you are full time the benefits aren't bad. They do try to promote from within.

    Cons

    The pay is pretty low. At the branch I was at my coworkers were miserable. If your in an in store branch you have crappy hours. You also have to deal with dumb, smelly, rude customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so cheap.

    Former Employee - Sales and Servuce Representative
    Former Employee - Sales and Servuce Representative

    Pros

    Benefits
    Hours
    Holidays
    Vacation Time
    Friendly Environment

    Cons

    Low Pay
    Slight lack in communication
    Staffing Issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you pay your employees more, they will definitely stay. There are MAJOR staffing issues and most times is left up to the employees to pick up the slack.
