    I worked at Beal Bank full-time

    Pros

    Excellent people to work with. Position consists of a good mixture of both daily tasks and special projects. Free coffee, cocoa & tea. Cafeteria on-site, and covered parking is available.

    Cons

    Small company with a limited portfolio of loans results in numerous layoffs each year. The growth of the portfolio has waned in recent years. The company needs a new vision in order to survive and succeed.

    Advice to Management

    The powers that be need to be reminded of the value of the company, and the potential for growth needs to be fully explored. Initiative needs to be demonstrated to the higher-ups to show that there are some risks worth taking.

    I worked at Beal Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Most people there were very nice. Starting pay was decent. Work was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Senior management was not friendly or approachable. I never saw them smile. My department had a toxic environment due to it's management. Good work was unappreciated and personal initiative was stifled. Made very few mistakes, but couldn't take care of the smallest thing without unwarranted criticism. Raises are small.

    Advice to Management

    Replace managers who mistreat employees.

    Pros

    A lot of free time and a no pressure sales environment. Retention bonuses. Limited product line making it easy to stay on top of things and a good corporate strategy solidifying job security....
    A lot of free time to read and peruse the Internet.

    Cons

    Small staff in branches, usually 4 people. One or two branches per market and banks are only in medium to large metro areas leaving little room for promotion and or growth.

    Advice to Management

    Have a management trainee program even if it means relocation after.

    I worked at Beal Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    My co-workers were wonderful. Everyone put their hand in the pile to get the job done and helped each other. My managers were also very helpful and aggressive in helping you be better at your job. It was rare that I had to work overtime.

    Cons

    1. Job stability is non-existent. Over half of my department was laid off within a year of being hired. Unless you very successful in getting approved deals, keep your resume current. Lack of structure, performance evaluation was not clear, I never knew where I stood.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Great learning experience - excellent during times of market stress - lot's of opportunities. Solid work/life balance most of the time.

    Cons

    Low compensation versus industry norms. Number of employees fluctuates greatly depending on market conditions - poor job security. Office politics - upper management definitely picks favorites.
