    I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, 4.5% match and pension.

    Cons

    Insurance plans are expensive, lots of turnover, a lack of care for customers has become the norm. Account requirement changes have soured a lot of long-standing relationships with good people that will now be charged for their accounts. Severe lack of sufficient communication from hiring teams to internal candidates.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever it takes to retain competent talent, especially in the retail management structure. Get rid of people that aren't respected, listen to your people.

    I worked at Associated Banc-Corp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It looks good on a resume that you had a job at a bank I suppose. That's it for pros.

    Cons

    Lies! They feed you lies on a daily basis. I suppose management believes them because they tell them daily. If they don't like you, don't expect a promotion. I was placed on disciplinary action because my manager had no legal grounds to fire me on and was hoping I would just quit. She even told me that (but said it was off the record so that made it ok...) this place is a joke. Management and HR was made aware of what...

    I worked at Associated Banc-Corp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Better "image" in Wisconsin than the Big Banks.

    Cons

    Too much focus on sales at the branch level. Although this may vary among branches, most of your day will likely NOT be spent in sale activities earning you commissions. It will be spent on activities such as issuing new debit cards for customers who lost theirs, helping with debit card purchase/ATM disputes, assisting at the teller line, and hearing endless complaints about bank fees from customers. While the company...

    Advice to Management

    Be more honest about the role when posting for new hires and wooing candidates for retail banker jobs. Don't say "The sky is the limit" when talking about incentive for a new Personal Banker. While the competition may also glorifying the Personal Banker position, it makes more business sense to be upfront about the role at the very beginning. People will know what they are getting into at the start and turnover will be...

    I worked at Associated Banc-Corp part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I appreciated the training I received and the patience of my bank manager when I was first hired and trained. Associated has a wonderful ongoing training program which was the best thing about this bank. I met many strong employees and great customers during my three plus years with this company.

    Cons

    Top management either has no idea how difficult and involved the job of a teller is or they just do not care. I left in fall 2013 when they decided we had too much stage and wanted to cut a twenty hours a week from our teller staff. I decided that I would not want to be working there after the cut as I was all ready stressed trying to give excellent service quickly and build relationships with the customers to sell or...

    Advice to Management

    You should find out why people are leaving or retiring early. I worked at your bank for over three years and "retired" about two years early. The reason is: you are out of touch with your front line at local banks and you need to focus on good customer service. You have lost strong employees and good customers because of your policies.

    I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Associated Bank seems to promote from within quite frequently. They have good benefits such as a 410k match (~4.5%) as well as a pension. In-store bankers (grocery store locations) have a quicker opportunity to advancement as they can move up to be Assistant Managers, which the stand alone locations don't offer.

    Cons

    In-store relationship bankers get shafted until they are promoted. The hours working in the grocery store location is hardly ideal (Holidays, Sundays, and open till 7pm during the week). Expect to earn less money than the bankers at the traditional branches too. It is next to impossible for the grocery store bankers to reach goals and thus earn any commission (Currently there are only ~2 in-store bankers in the entire...

    Advice to Management

    Compensate in-store bankers for the bad hours they have to work, that would help stem the high turnover. Also fix the relationship banker incentive point system so they same percentage of in-store bankers hit their monthly points as traditional bankers.

    Pros

    good products, good vacation policy, understanding for personal (family)time off, training is good

    Cons

    push sales to much, seem to forget customer service, don't know when they have a good employee to treat them right

    Advice to Management

    respect your staff and pay for what you expect the people to do, salary should match responsibility
