    I worked at Bank Midwest full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is zero reason to work at this bank as a Mortgage Lender

    Cons

    The comp plan, lack of CRM, lack of direction for the mortgage department, operations is horrible and uneducated. The culture of the bank is the worst I have ever seen, they treat their associates worse than any company I have ever been a part of. They have little value for the associate while touting associate engagement. HR is a disaster and a revolving door.

    Advice to Management

    Shutter the doors and don't let your investors find out who and what you really are.

    Pros

    Benefits. But that won't last long as they are performing so poorly that those benefits get worse every year. They have 2 sales rally's every that can be enjoyable.

    Cons

    You will notice that most good reviews are from managers. As a employee of this company I have sat in on the conference call with HR that discuss this companies horrible employee reviews on multiple different job sites. Instead of addressing the issues of their managers, regional managers and senior management's pure lack of leadership, knowledge and complete disrespect for their front line employees they instead work out a plan to have managers go to these sites and write reviews that will manipulate the scores. This is a horrible company to work for and it won't change. The systems they spent millions on don't work for the customers or the employees. The staffing models are no where near sufficient to take care of customers or to be able to do your job correctly. Employees can receive consistent " exceeds expectations" for their yearly reviews but only receive 1% raises and a lecture on how they should be thankful to have a job.

    Advice to Management

    Look at yourselves in the mirror and understand that you are the problem. Make a commitment to change your attitudes towards your employees. Try to take care of the few customers that you have left and maybe this company will have a chance.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement.
    Fair pay.
    Not as stressful as Bank of America or US Bank.
    Minimum confrence calls.
    Great AD and Assistant AD.
    Good work and home life balance.
    Very good insurance for a great price.

    Cons

    Very poor training program unless you are a teller.
    Somewhat hard to bonus.
    The squeaky wheel gets the grease here. If you don't speak up to your AD and management OFTEN you'll watch others that may be less qualified move up before yourself

    Advice to Management

    Listen to ideas for improvements from your staff, take them seriously and use at least some of them.
    You need training classes, don't depend on rushed computer training/shadowing in understaffed branches and the phone number for doc support "Who usually just tell you the answer to your question is on the vault" to train your new employees.
    Staff your branches, we're in a recession. If branches aren't getting enough applications to fill positions it's because people don't know we're hiring.
    If you are going to make new policies that if aren't followed could lead to write ups or firings let those write ups be for future offenses. Not offenses that happened before the policy came into affect.
