    Pros

    Univest is very supportive of work and life and creating a balance between the two. There are many fitness/wellbeing opportunities that Univest provides as perks and it makes working for this company that much more enjoyable. Executives are very open, humble and willing to help.

    Cons

    Not as many perks and time off like other banks in the area. Communication between departments and even inter-departmental could certainly do with some improvement. Consistency is also lacking due to the "more seasoned" employees doing things one way and the younger, fresher employees doing tasks another way.

    Advice to Management

    Please be open to more change and input from the younger employees as they are the ones who have to finish what the tenured folks start!

    Pros

    Good incentive plan available to employees who meet quarterly sales goals.

    Cons

    Terrible management who push sales to the point where they are not ethical

    Advice to Management

    Instead of micro managing spend time with employees to learn what works and what doesn't on the teller line.

    Pros

    decent pay and benfits, lots of employees with long tenure, friendly staff in branches, strong focus on customer satisfaction and community service. Bank appreciates that it is a small company so does not try to be something it is not by striving to keep up with the larger banks in the area.

    Cons

    Outdated security and operational procedures and technology. Teller computers ran on 10-year-old windows programs and teller system, meaning they would freeze or run extremely slow. Bank policy is "next-day availability" but everything deposited was available immediately (checks and cash). ATM deposits were available next day (at midnight), no matter the amount. Little guidance for operational integrity, even though the importance of branch audits were stressed. These issues leave the bank open for fraud and then look for a lower level employee to blame when bank losses occur instead of looking at procedural inefficiencies.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good hard look at operations and weigh the pros and cons with customer convenience. If you choose convenience over security, don't jump to terminate someone once bank losses occur just to feel better about yourselves.
