    I worked at American Chartered full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, PTO, co-workers.
    15 years ago, your were treated like family.
    We used to have group building exercises at the park, which was really a picnic playing games, great holiday parties, no bonus but your were given a turkey or a box of fruits. You felt like the company cared. I really thing think they did at that time, but somewhere along they the way they got lost and it all became about the bottom line. Sad,Sad,Sad...

    Cons

    Branch managers, HR
    Managers have a click, talk about employees, show clear favortism. When confronted they become defense and your the bad guy.
    HR will alway be on managements side even as they humor you by listening with concern.

    I have been working at American Chartered full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is a great pay for performance culture. Clients are highly respected and hard work is rewarded. Very little politics as performance is tracked with hard data regularly.

    Cons

    This can be a tough environment if you aren't a self starter. Commercial bankers are given leeway to do their job but are held accountable for loan quality and client satisfaction.

    I have been working at American Chartered full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people are great. There have been lots of opportunities to learn and grow for someone startin out as a rotational trainee.

    Cons

    Once you become an officer it's very difficult to get promoted beyond that. Training and development are not a top priority.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication of major changes within the organization would be beneficial for all.
