    Pros

    *Great incentive pay, great pay in general *Actively involved senior management *Work-life balance can't be duplicated easily *Expanding

    Cons

    *Micro-management, but it comes with the territory of being a bank *Upward movement is hard to come by, regardless of performance *Inadequate training *Lengthy hiring process (anticipate a month from your interview to being placed)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on guiding employees to success and teach them how to use their resources and tools right from the get-go, there definitely is a learning curve.

    Pros

    Associated Bank is well positioned to deliver on their promises to customers and that shines through in employee attitudes.

    Cons

    Like many retail banking units, Associated has expanded some of it's branches working hours. Six o'clock is great for customers, but not as much for bank employees used to heading home an hour earlier.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Co-workers have been wonderful at every branch I've worked.

    Cons

    New management style being implemented (micro-managing). Unreasonable goal expectations for location of branch. Promotion from within is slim to none (regardless of what they'll have you believe)

    Advice to Management

    Acknowledge successes. Promote deserving candidates. Tellers deserve higher wages since they do the work getting the customer over to us bankers.

  9. "Good start for beginning of career."

    Current Employee - Personal Banker in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp

    Pros

    Benefits are great! Health insurance is Blue Cross Blue Shield Anthem Lumenos and very cheap. Hours are good because the branches in the loop are only open M-F during business hours, unlike outlying branches that are open later and on Saturdays. The staff is young and upbeat, including management; management is very approachable.

    Cons

    Pay is not that great. They offer incentives to earn "incentive" money, however, you have to reach a sales quota first and that is a hard goal to reach. The office environment is also very slow paced and quiet. The only excitement in the office is when there are a lot of customers needing assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in mind what is realistic for your employees. It is counterproductive to assign goals that are unattainable, and then penalize employees who cant reach the goals. Keep the state of the economy in mind when expecting people so bring in business; people are tighter with their money and more scared to part with it.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Associated Banc-Corp

    Pros

    Company seems to promote from within, but to the highest level of someone's incompetence. Vacation policy and sick time policy very competitive once you reach 3 years of service. As of July '09, still offer all employees 401(k) and company paid pension plan.

    Cons

    Environment of micro-management throughout the chain of command. Company has grown too fast, outgrown systems and processes Tries to act like they are a large national bank On the retail side, sales goals are comparable to larger banks with larger market share, but products are not competitive. Lack of support from marketing and product development team. Too many manual processes, manual reports to compose, email,...

    Advice to Management

    Communicate corporate strategy/direction more to client facing employees. Better product development, more competitive deposit product set if sales goals are to remain high.
