    I worked at Valley National Bancorp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Solid if not inspirational leadership but high on class and ethics, putting doing the "right" thing for the company and its shareholders over quick profits and the allure of deal making.

    Cons

    The very conservative nature that allowed them to escape difficulty and over leveraging during the financial crisis, contributes to an analytic paralysis when deals that are just outside of their comfort level are presented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A bit more aggressive posture, expand the envelope, not ethically but by taking on a bit more risk, profits will flow.
