    I have been working at City National Bank (Texas) full-time

    Pros

    Professional environment with experienced colleagues. Low turnover in most departments. Good benefits with profit sharing in 401k. Good work life balance. Focus on client service.

    Cons

    Not a lot of space for career advancement. If you get hired into a department, then limited ability to move unless you have an advocate in another department. Discuss developing colleagues, but focus is to hire outside to fill positions.

  2. "Not a job I would like to stay at...."

    StarStarStarStarStar
      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at City National Bank (Texas) full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Not a challenging job, good hours, great job security and I learned a lot of "behind the scenes" of the banking industry. They are knowledgeable and professional.

      Cons

      Regardless, if you have a degree, the pay is HORRIBLE! They will pay you as less as they can get away with. No room for advancement, unless you know someone higher in the bank. It's all about who you know. -- and it is a very "clickish" bank. Not an enjoyable environment to work in. JUDGMENTAL employees, plus promises of raises which are never received.

      Advice to Management

      Lift your employees up and make them look forward to coming to work instead of dreading another day in chaos! Stop the politics. Don't take advantage of your employees when it comes to their salary.

      Former Employee - Mid Level Branch Employee 

      I worked at City National Bank (Texas)

      Pros

      Well, you are employed & not on a breadline...takes long time in this economy to find another job in these small rural communities.

      Cons

      No Human Resource Mgr. If you have an issue or problem or seek confidentiality on an issue or problem, you have NO ONE. LOTS of hidden rules regarding pay & already low benefits they provide. Managers follow their own rules, change working situations, rules without any management or labor law training. Mgrs rule by intimidation, have "pet" and rest of branch left to suffer. Do & say what they please to employees. Several...

      Advice to Management

      Cull out poor Managers! They are ruining reputation in local community with bank and personnel issues even customers are exposed to. Very low morale at so many branches, why don't you care? Low morale & poor management seen by local customers, why don't you care? IF branch mgrs. are doing their jobs well, WHY are they always making excuses for how they treated employees & what they have done to customers?? WHY are...

      "Could be better, could be worse."

      StarStarStarStarStar
        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at City National Bank (Texas) full-time

        Pros

        The work life balance is good overall, but that's because I'm in a satellite office with some good local managers.

        Cons

        They don't like to invest in their infrastructure, specifically technology, unless you are in a high margin area of the company. The rest of us are left to suffer through attrition. They really use resource dollars poorly, yet always try to cut costs from areas where there isn't a large amount of waste instead, which is due to lack of any kind of definitive COO.

        Advice to Management

        Hire a COO that can unify groups within the bank. Ayn Randian resource allocation is a very poor way to run a company that is trying to grow (see Eddit Lampers, Sears).

        • "Political Backstabbers, Doesn't pay Bonuses as Promised"

            Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

            I worked at City National Bank (Texas)

            Pros

            If you are running for politics one day, you'll get excellent practice here.

            Cons

            Management is extremely political and fearful. Some steal deals from their subordinates and put their name on it. The bank will find every excuse to not pay you your hard earned bonuses if you bring in new business. Upper management (like an EVP) will steal a deal away from an officer if her "favorite officer" happened to "call" that business 10 years ago and feels entitled to that business. Basically, your worst enemies...

            Advice to Management

            Stop doing interviews in the newspaper about how you are proud to not be a political bank when this is the most political place outside the Obama administration. Stop acting business friendly and liberal with your lending intentions when you are actually stingy and ultra tight with your money.
