  4. "A Rollercoaster!"

    Pros

    Lots of ups and downs with being at this company over 5 years! I’ve had great managers, awful managers that made me wonder how they even landed their jobs. Chill bosses, racist bosses. I was promoted often but none of my promotions really satisfied or challenged me how I wanted to be so I was always ready for the next step! Relaxed dress code, Easy to move up.

    Cons

    Uncompetitive pay, no structure. I witnessed people get fired for defending themselves against abusive customers and I’ve witnessed people get fired for making one deposit mistake, rather than being simply coached. The “favorites” get away with more. I’ve witnessed internal interview applicants be denied a promotion and watched the managers turn around and hire who they wanted in the position without even making them interview. Managers at this company definitely play favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent in your punishments (coaching). Too many gray areas.
