COMMITMENT TO DEVELOPMENT
Earlier this year, we held a series of onsite SQL training sessions for our Systems Analysts with more than 40 colleagues advancing their SQL skills. Additionally, the training provided valuable engagement and collaboration opportunities.
Several attendees were able to immediately apply skills learned. They were able to add hints to long running queries that improved performance, and solving a production report issue by using a SQL variable technique, demonstrated in the session. Even our most seasoned SQL professionals found the training valuable.
Session facilitators were very accommodating, and after soliciting feedback, geared the training toward topics of particular interest.
"I’m thrilled we were able to provide this training opportunity, which will enable colleagues to do their job better and more efficiently. This is important for both the quality of work and morale."
– Candice, Business Solutions Manager

I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp full-time (More than 10 years)
I have worked at Associated Bank for over 15 years, having started as an intern in college. I have been given multiple opportunities to take on new opportunities in different areas of the organization, and assist with special projects that resulted in meaningful changes to the organization. These movements coupled with other development opportunities allowed me to grow quite significantly as a professional.
With as much time as people spend at work, it is important to have a community of individuals whom you enjoy working with - in general, I love the people I work with and we have a great time.
The company is based in WI, but primary footprint also includes MN and IL; the company also has several remote locations in surrounding states. The geographic positioning allows branch colleagues to relocate branches if they move across the footprint which is great. Similarly, corporate support colleagues have flexibility in relocation but to a smaller extent which is a downside - support positions tend to be in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Stevens Point, and Chicago.
Advice to Management
Continue to encourage colleagues to move into new and varying positions across the organization.
I applied online. I interviewed at Associated Banc-Corp (Hayward, WI) in July 2017.
There was a phone interview followed by a face to face with two associated bank upper management. The interview was informative, and professional. Benefits were explained well as was the challenges one would face in this position.
