    Pros

    Great Customers and Team members. Enjoyed the working conditions along with the hours of service. Great customer support staff behind the scenes.

    Cons

    Management both in branch and HR did not see beyond the issue when presented to them even after it was proven there was an issue. When management wanted you out they found a way.
    Salary not as good as it should be.

    Pros

    Company overall cares for their employees and provides extensive perks and incentives.

    Cons

    Lots of politics, a lot of things happening behind the scenes, and at times this borders inappropriate and unprofessional. Company does not have infrastructure in place for the exponential growth in York County which impacts employees and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more thoughtfully when suggestions are made.

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

    Pros

    BSB had a top reputation for servicing customers. Under new management since Jim Conlon retired, there has been some sort of a shake up and the goals are changing. We were told to cut conversations short with customers who like to speak with their bank rep. Nowadays, volume and sale of services have become the top goal. Some regular customers have noticed the change and say they don't like it.

    Cons

    During the transition, the bank NEVER delivered on it's promises to advance my career and give me opportunities to grow. Schedules were always unpredictable, making it impossible to supplement my meager income with a second job (although I am well aware that's the same with many banks).

    Advice to Management

    The new management seems worse and hard nosed, not caring about personnel, just about numbers... does that remind anybody from BofA? It is hard to understand why corporations tend to lose sight of the morale and motivation of their employees when they grow.
    How long will BSB be able to retain its prime reputation before too many people notice?
    We have a choice of local S&Ls here, and I hear they are busy opening new accounts.

    Pros

    BSB is one of the conservatively managed banks in Maine and therefore in a solid financial position.
    It is supposed to be one of the "Best Places to work".

    Cons

    Lots of promises but no action - Managers don't care - The new comers have absolutely no respect for their workers. The Bank seems to be going though a major transition due to its fast growth, and the initial ethics of top management are getting lost in the action.
    It's really to bad because it used to be a very reputable bank with very respected key officers.

    Advice to Management

    Try to check what is going on in the field, but most employees will tell you what you want to hear. In today's work market, they are scared to lose their jobs.

    Pros

    Big enough of a bank to be stable, small enough that you feel like your actually important. Great people, community feel.

    Cons

    I can not really even think of any cons to working at Bangor Savings Bank.
