    Advice to Management

    Stop telling lies to your employees, customers, and everyone else. And that starts from the top. When your more than half of your staff leaves you for other opportunities, there's a reason. But no one sees it, they blame the employees. Only management and the tattle tales are part of the "circle".

    I have been working at Centennial Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Not much. The holidays off are nice.

    Cons

    To much to mention, don’t apply here unless you want to be worked into the ground.

    Advice to Management

    Upon starting my first day I had no training for my job or support. I was told to sit at my desk and read the intranet information. My supervisor has no idea what my job entails or what is involved to perform my duties. Perhaps if my supervisor was present during working hours that might change. I trained myself as best as I could for my position. Had it not been for my previous experience I would not have survived as long as I have. There is constant disorganization and lack of compliance within my department. I work overtime most every day just to meet the commitments and deadlines as my supervisor is never there and generally doesn’t attend to their own job duties. My advice to management; carefully select persons you place into managerial positions. Make sure they are qualified for their positions and understand what the people that work under them actually do. Please send them to managerial training so they can learn effective leadership skills.

    I have been working at Centennial Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co workers and customers are friendly.

    Cons

    Management. Non-existent. Teller supervisor/Assist. Manager shares too much of their private/vulgar relationships with tellers. Assistant manager dates the customers, one of them is married and makes us wait on the wife whenever she comes in, while AM hides in the back. If you don't socialize or drink with them, you will not get ahead at this particular branch. Issues brought to HR on several occasions but nothing was done. The organizational culture is that of a sorority house. No learning environment, no coaching, no mentoring to new hires, and alcohol in the break room. Was told over and over again by supervisor that they are just ready to retire. Lack of cultural sensitivity, overseas workers come in to cash their checks and are constantly whispered and shamed about behind their backs or referred to as legalized aliens. I would stay away from this particular branch.

    Advice to Management

    Retire, please. So, we as new tellers can develop ourselves professionally by having someone who cares about helping us build our careers and look up too in a positive light.

    I worked at Centennial Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There were none to be listed.

    Cons

    Bullying is common practice and goes unpunished if you are well connected. No concern for creating a healthy work environment for employees. Issues brought to upper management and HR were consistently ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Put management in place with strong moral values and you will help create a cohesive environment for employees as well as customers.

    Pros

    Constant growth within the banking community.

    Cons

    Company does not operate as a large financial institution, as it has grown rapidly but remain behind in technology. Benefits are lacking, and too many managers with titles that are unwilling to make a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Update employee benefits such as vacation policy. Reinvest in the employees with better pay and incentives. Upgrade technology to enhance institutional efficiencies.
