    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Astoria Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Staff are friendly. Management team in Branch want to succeed and will try to help you

    Cons

    Upper management is not consistent with their policy. They change tactics just when you are getting used to their last directives. Some Branch management teams are more interested in firing staff than helping them succeed

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so quick to blame the staff when outrageous branch/personal goals are not being met. Staff sees that in all branches the personal and branch goals are being raised while the previous goals were not met. This demoralizes staff and causes good employees not to care
