    Pros

    Realistic expectations, No harsh sales pressure to our clients and no Saturdays!! It is refreshing to know that there is still a bank that embraces a good work/life balance. Did I mention....no Saturdays?

    Cons

    None that I am aware of at this point. More advertising might be a good idea. The community in California are not yet familiar with the Bank. They need to know who we are and what we offer.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue to embrace a work/life balance. Thank you for not forcing your employees to sell things people don’t need.

    A-level managers and great team mates, a good place to grow.

    Cons

    BannerBank is growing rapidly and so flexibility to change is a must. Adaptable employees will see opportunities to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great managers and employees. Pay market rates for top talent.

    I have been working at Banner Bank full-time

    Pros

    Good hours, benefits, good people to work with, good clientle.

    Cons

    Most job positions are dead ends. Very few job advancement options, staff not replaced when they leave making branches short handed, demotions occur or positions eliminated just because upper management decides to do this not due to anyrhing employees have done so no job security. Staff more likely to be criticized than encouraged. Management likes to push their responsibility back onto staff as opposed to taking care of manager type responsiblities themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Utilize your staff for what their skill sets are best used for and be working managers, be more involved in assisting clients and resolving issues. Allow staff to advance to different job positions instead of holding them back where they currently are just because you want to save a job position from being eliminated or you prefer them where they are. By holding employees back creates too much turn over and short staff situations. No one wants to work in a dead end job with no progress to look forward to. High staff turn over causes clients to question the stability of their bank.

    Pros

    Rated #1 Regional Bank by Bankrate for a reason!

    Great bank with excellent products & services, great employee benefits, awesome people in all departments!

    Terrific culture!

    Cons

    Lower pay for managers than most competitors. Quarterly incentive structure for branch managers needs a make over, unless you think getting a couple hundred bucks every three months makes up for a lower base pay. Annual incentive plan is decent but should also get a bump.

    Advice to Management

    This is a very successful bank with great employees! Share the wealth, it will help employees feel more appreciated and improve our retention.

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

    Pros

    Banner is a fair and strong institution, but a somewhat conservative lender. The bank really wants to offer good products and be a leader in the PNW market. My branch team is also really great and works hard to help me succeed.

    Cons

    Branch positions are all customer service focused, and that really isn't my thing. Talking to people wears me out.

    Advice to Management

    Digitize the credit/debit system. We run lots of paper work that could be done electronically instead.

    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.
