    Pros

    Bonuses for employees. Like the company and their values.

    Cons

    Training is okay but in my case I was thrown into doing many tasks that I had no proper training on and could not consult with my manager because they had no experience doing these thing but have been with the company for a very long time. Any time I had a question or needed help I was told to call the employee hotline or another manager. Lower pay than many other companies are offering, especially for the workload... you will receive if your manager is not very knowledgeable. Feedback to upper management is often overlooked based on their relationship with your direct manager.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better leaders, pay the workers more, invest in better technology and support services for your employees. Treat all employees equally and stop having favorites.

    I worked at Berkshire Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Minimal, please refrain in considering Berkshire Bank as an Emoloyment option.

    Cons

    The Negative Aspects are Legion. Poor banking services.

    Advice to Management

    I had six years of previous banking experience, before my initial employment with Berkshire. The training is disjointed, and Management is negelectful, in addressing Customer Concerns. In my time, which lasted less than a year, at Berkshire, 5 FSR Staff left, excluding myself, in the single branch I was assigned to. Quantifying those numbers alone, I have no idea how this bank is surviving. Not including Tellers,... Mortgage staff, those who worked on the Insurance Department who also left, each one of these Staff were irrelevant and did not work well? Many of my former colleagues are hard working individuals caught in a corporation that was and assumptively is horrible.

    I worked at Berkshire Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned a lot while I was here and was exposed to a lot of different challenges. The company is growing fast via acquisitions so the environment is pretty fast paced. Great people to work with and a lot of smart young people.

    Cons

    Pretty large amount of turnover as the company grows into the shoes of a larger company. Learning sometimes involves being thrown to the wolves and figuring stuff out on your own (I don't consider this a con but some may).

    Advice to Management

    I can't really give advice here as I understand most of the senior management has changed in the finance department since I left. Just keep developing your employees.
