    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.

    Cons

    Potential for discord lurks beneath the surface, and it rarely surfaces, the possibility can be somewhat discouraging.
