  3. "Good company being bought out by another."

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Lake Success, NY

      I have been working at Astoria Bank for more than 3 years

      Pros

      A very laid back friendly workplace. Many of the employees have been here 10+ years.

      Cons

      The company is in the middle of being bought out by another bank and everyone is worried about their jobs. Information from upper management is hard to come by. Most people are "phoning it in" at this point and looking for other work.

            Pros

            Astoria Bank is a great place to work. They tried their best to keep the employees engaged and motivated. There’s a lot of room for career growth within the organization. There are a lot of smart people who work for this organization

            Cons

            Pay is really low compare to industry standard. Also, they pay outsiders more than people who have been working for them for a very long time.

            Advice to Management

            HR should evaluate how the pay structure is arranged for people who have been with the company for a very long time.
