    Pros

    Company continues to evolve; works hard to stay relevant to customers, community, and provide an environment where team members can contribute their strengths to making a difference in the lives of many. Benefits and pay are great, and are regularly evaluated and benchmarked against the industry. We're seeing a cultural shift, and it is amazingly empowering, and brings great unity to the team.

    Cons

    Change is not always easy, and for some people it can be very challenging. This company is well suited for those that enjoy be a part of creating and building new processes, updating technology, evaluating products and services, and always looking for better ways to service our customers. If you're looking for routine, monotonous, static, and never changing, this probably isn't the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    This is advice to managers of all organizations: set clear expectations, foster an environment where team members can voice concerns and where suggestions are valued, tie individual goals back to organizational goals, give feedback often, remember to say "thank you" and appreciate team members, share information, utilize the strengths of our workforce, value contributions, address concerns as they happen, make time to train and develop individuals, have team meetings and foster comradery and collaboration, and foster an environment of trust.

    Pros

    Chemical Bank is an amazing company that puts their customers and team members first. Creating an excellent experience from the first outreach. As team members we are encouraged to give back to the community. The company supports these activities by granting approved time away from work to participate in activities. Everyone is encouraged to be empowered and make a difference every day. The company is growing and has many outstanding opportunities. Spread the word!! Benefits are exceptional. If you want to be part of a growing company that values its team members Chemical Bank is the place.

    Cons

    Continue to work on getting our brand out to the communities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to spread the word about Chemical Bank - be ambassadors.

    Pros

    Awesome supervisor, and their supervisor is great. The environment is casual and allows for flex time which is always a perk!

    Cons

    Crap pay. They want experience but they aren't willing to pay for it. Sad really, just not good business if you ask me. You do get what you pay for!

    Advice to Management

    Constructive criticism and don't keep taking away incentives

    Pros

    -Above average benefits including health, dental, and vision insurance
    -Good 401k match
    -Above average PTO allotment although new analysts don’t get as much as legacy employees
    -Great lending team

    Cons

    -Complete lack of quality managers at all levels of credit department
    -Management only concerned with internal politics, stifling creative and critical thought, keeping the status quo, and stroking egos
    -No thoughtfulness to training, development, and well rounded experience
    -Cut an internal leadership development program for analysts to reduce costs
    -Already overburdened credit management find time to send petty emails to subordinates instead of fixing obvious roadblocks to department improvements

    Advice to Management

    Until a significant change in credit management is made, I can’t recommend and strongly advise against any future analysts from joining the bank. Hopeful that the Talmer merger will continue to push for constructive change and improvement.
