    I have been working at Citizens First Bank for more than a year

    Pros

    It is a small company which lends itself to a lot of opportunity to be creative and invent new compensation plans, strategies and philosophy.

    Cons

    Being a small company that is family owned, some of the advanced technology is not there and change does not come easy. Compensation philosophy is a bit lagging in comparison to similar companies.

    I have been working at Citizens First Bank for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The small, family atmosphere makes it a great place to work at. It's a wonderful place to start out a career in banking.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of room for growth or opportunity. Also, training is very minimal, so expect to spend a lot of time asking questions and figuring things out on your own.
