    Pros

    Customer Focused bank w/ flexibility to help customer Sales are "team focused" and not super high pressure. Ability to structure your day for highest output on the banking side. Most managers at the branch and department heads seem to be good to work for.

    Cons

    Pay can fall behind if not diligent about asking for raises/promotions. Sometimes goals seem out of touch with what is going in the market. Technology is definitely behind the curve. Training and professional development can be improved.

    Current Employee - Retail Lending Operation in Lincoln, RI
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Brookline Bancorp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Smaller teams who work well together. Cross-training is key so others can help when needed. Open and honest feedback is encouraged so obstacles can be overcome and customers can be better served. Workload is more than manageable and manager is fully engaged with day to day tasks but not overpowering at all. It is also important to her that everyone is respectful to each other and enjoys coming to work which creates a nice work environment.

    Cons

    Ability to work remotely would be beneficial-hopefully an option in the future with system capability.
