    I have been working at Bank Leumi USA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Recent shift over the past few years towards positive, engaging company culture and core values

    Great senior management team with a cohesive, unified focus towards the direction of the bank.

    More freedom and opportunity to affect change at the local and regional level within certain business lines. Definitely more than one would find at the "bigger banks"

    Boutique style bank with great focus on client relationships

    Cons

    Internal operating system technology a little behind the industry as a whole. But, the company is aware and is making strides towards advancement.

    Operating procedures for some front office client processes out of date. Incremental changes are occurring.

    Some disconnect between regional offices regarding front office business strategies within certain lines of business.

    This is a mid level boutique style bank so doesn't pack some of the power of the larger firms. But it does compete fairly well among its peer group.

    Pros

    This company offers more opportunity to contribute than any other place I've worked at. Ideas and opinions are not only welcome but are encouraged, and your contributions are regularly rewarded.

    Cons

    Can't think of many cons...because contributions that are beyond your normal day job are welcome, it's easy to get very busy, but management is always willing support and help you through whatever challenges you may run into.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Some employees have nice cushy jobs and don't too much while they pull in large salaries.

    Cons

    In all my years as a banker in different organizations, I have never worked in an office environment that was as toxic as Leumi. It seems management does not know what path they want to take the bank. The turnover is outrageous and they vacillate between a blood bath of firings and a deluge of new hirings. They are now in the process of getting rid of the loyal, knowledgeable and dependable baby boomers to replace them with mediocre millenniums who do not have the experience, are apathetic and are ready to jump ship without a second thought.

    Management often act as figureheads with no backbone and hide behind the decisions made by others they delegate. They do not take ownership of their mistakes and poor decisions.

    There is no organized training program for new hires and employees are left to figure things out on the fly.

    The Human Resources department lacks professionalism, and are unapproachable and inefficient.

    Advice to Management

    Give up and sell the bank! It is going downhill very fast.

    Pros

    The company culture is very friendly and family like. You will have autonomy and room to breath. Decent pay for entry level roles. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Platform is sub-par and reporting is terrible. The only competitive advantage is affiliation to Israel and Judaism. Zero training. No defined career path.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in technology and reporting.
