    I worked at Chemical Bank full-time

    Pros

    The culture and organization used to be first class with integrity. The focus was on the customers, doing the right thing, and employees trusted management.

    Pros

    Recent changes in executive, senior and middle leadership has headed in the best direction for the company as a whole. Honest, transparent, and upfront leadership is key.

    Cons

    Still have some negative energy but it’s getting better. The leadership seems to know that hard workers and employees with integrity deserve to be recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Keep honest, hard working employees happy. Keep listening to all employees and admit mistakes, as they are made. Lead by example.

    I have been working at Chemical Bank full-time

    Pros

    Chemical Bank is very active within the community.

    Cons

    Employees contributions doubled going into 2018 and with the already low salaries that was a big disappointment. The systems are from the stone age. Doing a basic teller transaction there is so much paper that is just wasted. There are doing major cost cutting plans right now and therefore you can't even order tissues for the office.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees. If you watch out for them and not double their monthly insurance contributions they will be happier and work harder for you. Pay them more to keep up with current times.

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

    Pros

    The bank offers community involvement.

    Cons

    No training, no leadership, negative environment, archaic technology, growing too much too quickly. This company used to care about their employees, but now look at their employees as numbers.
