    Entrepreneurial atmosphere, strong management team that knows how to let people do their thing, good comp and benefits though benefits declined a bit after PWB merger. Still acts and feels like a small company even though it is a $15B bank now.

    Burdens of being a federally regulated financial institution are annoying and can get in the way of doing good work, but it is not much of a detractor. Could use some formal training resources.

    Promote within at a faster face to reduce turnover.

    Pros

    Very friendly work environment.
    Staff was very helpful & accommodating

    Internship program wasn't very structured. Often found myself wanting for work.
    Tasks would take me less time than they expected and when I went looking for more work, I wouldn't be given anything.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more comprehensive and structured program.
