    Pros

    Autonomy, strong incentive package, pension

    Cons

    Present themselves as a "customer-centric" organization. Over time, they have become the next big bank to sacrifice reputation for size. As they continue to grow, the continue to lose the foundation that built them. Product pushing and sales demands have now become the norm all while continuing to convince employees and clients we do what is best for the client

    Advice to Management

    Revisit history of Wachovia, Bank of America (NationsBank), JP Morgan, Chase, etc. You are doomed to repeat it

    Pros

    Lower management is great. They are very helpful and always have their door open. Coworkers are also very friendly and everyone helps each other out.

    Cons

    The work load varies by the time of year and can some times be unmanageable. If you are a hard worker you are often taken advantage of by being given a heavier work load, while others get away with a lower work load and taking breaks every hour. People that slack off are rarely reprimanded, which is very frustrating. Over time is occasionally offered, but they usually wait until everyone is so far behind it is impossible to catch up. There is very little opportunity for advancement and promotions are given as a title with no pay increase. With promotions you are expected to take more difficult files, but you don't get paid anymore to do it. Upper management rules with threats and rarely recognizes achievements. They turn what could be a positive enjoyable work environment into a frustrating and negative environment.

    Advice to Management

    Reward and notice your hard working, dependable employees before they go elsewhere.
