    I worked at Banner Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good employee culture, mission, and values. Competitive wages and benefits. The Utah management is very approachable and promotes unity rather than working as separate business silos.

    Cons

    Annual bonus goals aren’t clearly defined by corporate until nearly the end of the first to mid-to end of the second quarter of each year.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in defining goals prior to beginning of first quarter.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed working environment (for the most part), bank holidays, work/life balance are good.

    Cons

    Outdated systems, cumbersome tasks making it take longer than a typical bank to push through a commercial loan. Management cares much more about specific verbiage on credit memos (inhouse only documents) than the actual big picture loan. Credit analysts are not writers, they are analysts... they focus on the math and the meat of the deal and should not be expected to be expert technical writers.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out new systems. Hire more women. Management is a gentlemens club

    Pros

    Good working environment with coworkers. I've had both good and bad managers who are willing to work with me on what I want to do and others that try and keep me so they don't have to fill another spot.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than most banks. Changing paths because it's what I wanted to do in my career was hard in the same department but transferring to another department is really easy if they want you.

    I worked at Banner Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some employees were enjoyable to work with.

    Cons

    Abusive manager. Micro-managing supervisors. Experience and knowledge not valued. Promises made not kept. No one to turn to. HR or upper management. Blamed for problems that weren't created by me. Too many meetings and nothing accomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Exit reviews should be done before leaving the bank. No one asked why I was leaving after many years with the bank. Upper management should pay more attention to what is going on around them. Take responsibility.
