    Pros

    excellent pay and benefits. pleasant work conditions.

    Cons

    many processes make it difficult for new bankers to get acclimated to the position. easy simple fast is definitely not the case with loans. no set career plan or path. difficult to move up. there are many processes that waste time and effort to fix simple issues.

    Advice to Management

    get yourselves into the branch to find out exactly what is happening. too much power distance.
