    I have been working at Berkshire Bank for less than a year

    Pros

    The company's culture is a lot of fun. There's a focus on employees taking time away from business to play games, decorate the business centers, and socialize.

    Cons

    Company is technologically a bit backwards, and some of the procedures haven't been updated in a long time/are no longer relevant. Often times a procedural question can come down to "that sounds good, do that."

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Berkshire Bank

    Pros

    Health benefits, all day training classes, paid time off after 6 months, reasonable bankers hours, higher than average starting pay, lots of customer interaction, full-time

    Cons

    Uniform required, cannot negotiate starting rate, must work 2 Saturdays a month which means 2 weeks out of every month you have a to work a 6 day work week and it's still only 40 hours, corporate nonsense, sales goals, it doesn't matter if you're the best at every other aspect of the job, if you can't do sales they don't want you.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Berkshire Bank full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The organizational culture is amazing, the RIGHT values (Respect, Integrity, Guts, Having fun, & Teamwork) are great and really are a part of decisions that are made and daily interactions. Good benefits, especially healthcare and 401k matching.

    Cons

    Unless you are in a higher position, monetary compensation is horrid. Be prepared to do the work of 2+ roles without having a title change or raise. BB does not give cost-of-living raises. Career opportunities are also few and far between.

    I worked at Berkshire Bank

    Pros

    Some of the pros to working for Berkshire Bank, are consistent work schedules, comparable pay to similar positions in other companies, benefits for full time employees at a reasonable cost, enjoyable staff, and occasional overtime.

    Cons

    The biggest downside at the time that I was employed with Berkshire Bank, was the fact that the banks intentions of growing into a nationally sized bank, kind of clashed with the customers who were used their small town banking experience that they were used to when the company was originally Woronocco Savings Bank. For the most part, people do not tend to favor change, and become set in their ways. With Berkshire Bank constantly expanding, and wanting to offer new products and solutions to their customers, along came the "retail banking" style. In my own personal experience, the customers seemed to be annoyed with sales pitches, and towards the end of my time with Berkshire Bank, employees were actually given contact sheets to start cold calling in-between customers.
