    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Astoria Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management was very official and kind. You learn a lot about banking through working here and everyone is out to help everyone.

    Cons

    Training could be a little more thorough. The referral system that they hold you too is almost always impossible to complete fully. High stress environment for a very low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Be more lenient on the tellers for their referrals and the financial consultant referrals. More training for all positions and make sure you hire good managers.

    You get a lot of the holidays off because it is a bank. The work load varies. You learn a lot if put in a department you aren't familiar with.

    Cons

    It takes FOREVER to gain days to take off. Also, the benefits are kind of pricey.

    Advice to Management

    Change vacation policies with HR.

    Pros

    Close knit environmnet. OK hours. Learn a lot. Able to network and make good connections.

    Cons

    Corporate is anware of basic functions at branch level. Old systems. Management isn't managing everyone fairly. To many changes and not enough positive encouragement. Very geared towards sales.

    Advice to Management

    Better managing of entire staff for fairness. Corporate and branch level needs to have better communication to eliminate wasteful processes.
