    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.

    Pros

    The variety of duties is refreshing. It keeps the day-to-day responsibilities from getting old. The people are incredibly helpful and are always willing to assist one another. The systems we use are easy to utilize and understand. The contact between bankers and operations is very good.

    Cons

    Promotions and positions are readily available, but the movement can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    This won't matter since the bank is getting bought, but other employers should take note that ACB is one fine establishment. We as employees have been spoiled with flexibility and more opportunities to wear multiple hats than any other company I have heard of to this caliber. You won't get the flexibility and easy opportunity like the big corporate banks. So I'm just gonna enjoy this while it lasts!

    Cons

    Because of the smaller nature of the bank, it is limiting to move about and try something else unless a position does become open. Which, when you have many people average 10+ years of employment, it's hard to find variety.

    Advice to Management

    Wish you could figure out a way to keep things going and not be bought. I know we're doing well and it's a shame investors have to be paid but that's a dream world. They of course need to be paid. Wish we hadn't needed investors 5 years ago but who knows if ACB would still exist without them.
