    I have been working at Univest full-time (more than a year)

    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    Outdated security and operational procedures and technology.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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Univest

    Pros

    Univest has a great work environment with a low key staff and reasonable sales goals. I've had the privilege of working with some great mentors to help me learn the banking industry.

    Cons

    There are limited positions in my area. There is too much required to move up; leadership training, principles of banking, etc, and it takes too long to be approved for those courses. The average pay is very low compared to larger commercial banks.

    I worked at Univest

    Pros

    Good benefits, close to home, fun coworkers

    Cons

    The low pay - one time my yearly raise was only .23 cents, which was an insult. I had a very good review and I wished they would recognize my hard work. Also, when I started as a regular teller in 2001, I was making $8.40/hr. A few years later, I found out that they were paying new tellers about $10/hr. Same for new branch managers and cust service reps (the new hires would start out with more than the current employees were making, at times).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More realistic pay scales, such as a "living wage." They wonder why there's a high turnover rate in the branches - it's because you don't usually get recognized fairly for hard work, and you aren't paid a fair salary. I finally quit a few years ago because I needed to make more money.
