    Pros

    Great place to work. Particularly enjoy the people who are very friendly. The culture is a very accepting one, where everyone is expected to work very hard--but is also allowed to have life events happen. Employees are encouraged to take care of things when they need to.

    Cons

    Smaller organization so less room for growth and movement in some areas than would be ideal. Sometimes people feel stuck, without a lot of back office growth.

    I worked at Bank of Georgetown (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Bank of Georgetown is a small local community bank which is still growing. There isn't as much red tape to go through like working for the big banks. The pay is slightly higher than the big banks for equivalent positions as well, but not by much. The people are great and the CEO genuinely cares about every employee.

    Cons

    BOG is very frugal and doesn't spend money if they don't have to. Middle management gossips too much, the scheduling of staff between branches is a nightmare, and the growth potential is nonexistent. In my 18 months at the company there was one person promoted to assistant manager and he was essentially running the entire branch well before that. It was really more of a ceremonial promotion. The bank branches are understaffed limiting time-off requests.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the scheduling issues, hire additional staff to fill gaps, don't tout internal growth if you're not going to deliver.

    Pros

    Free parking is a great perk

    Cons

    Career advancement and employee development are non existent. No opportunities for lower level employees

    Advice to Management

    Create an in-house training and development program to encourage employees to stay with the company and obtain career goals in other fields within the bank.
