    Pros

    Great benefits, overall culture is great but can be iffy in certain departments, the location is nice if you are downtown.

    Cons

    Some of the long timers get cliquey and set in their ways, it's time for them to update their way of doing things or retire.

    Advice to Management

    This is no longer a small bank, let's stop trying to operate as such.
