    Pros

    Maximum 4.5 weeks vacation. 4 months 100% pay maternity leave and 1 month 100% pay paternity leave. Flexible schedule

    Cons

    Constantly changing directions, never told what is really going on in the company, and it's a corporate desk job so not exactly fulfilling. It's just a job.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, good pay, useful training and life long financial experience. It's a great starter to help you grow and also decent if you go to school

    Cons

    Environment, middle management runs around like the rules don't apply to them. There is more drama on the management level than anywhere I've seen.

    Advice to Management

    Take out the trash and be the Bank you're supposed to be. Not the call center you try so hard to avoid being.
