    I worked at East Boston Savings Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    EBSB' success and expansion in the last few years is mainly attributed to its CEO, who is a strong visionary and knows how to retain talent with his personable, humorous, larger-than-the-room and likable personality. I left to pursue an MBA in another country, but leaving EBSB for me was difficult because it was the happiest work environment I've experienced to date.

    The VP is also extremely friendly and jovial; both he and the CEO take time to visit employees at each branch and of all levels how they're doing professionally and personally. I was surprised how congratulatory fellow employees are, as in many work environments things can get competitive. But some employees have been at EBSB for decades, working their way up from teller to manager.

    EBSB gives chances to employees to move up--I was promoted within a year and half.

    Key pros for me were:
    - very good ork-life balance
    - charter bank with family culture, coworkers happy and root for your success
    - CEO gives out his cell number and is reachable by all staff and all customers
    - open-door policy with all senior staff and bosses, spend time with you, asking how you're doing and really listen
    - management asks what your career goals are and give advice and chances for you to get there
    - lots of networking opportunities around Boston, as the Bank has many contacts
    - Bank continues to expand

    Cons

    - training if you don't have much experience in certain areas tend to be learn-as-you-go, so it's not formally in place and you'll need to ask a lot of people a lot of questions to learn the ropes, best practices
    - pay is a bit lower than competitors (but personally, the warm culture, CEO and team made up for it)
    - some people may free-ride

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at East Boston Savings Bank.

    Interview

    It was a great interview. The branch manager was pleasant, thoughtful, and asked very interesting questions. This was probably one of the best interviews I had. He wanted to know more about my character as a person, and how that translated to my work ethics/ habits rather than my previous work experiences. I felt comfortable, and at ease. It was great knowing that my hiring was based upon who I was, and not purely on my past work experiences (or lack of).
