    Make sure and support those good workers who might not have anywhere to move up and make them feel appreciated, and do what you can to find a place for them

    Pros

    Nice people, plenty of workspace, laptop with docking station and monitor provided. Diversity of staff is good, and the cafeteria is good but with really slow service. You tend to be allowed quite some independence of work, and on Fridays the place is virtually empty because they allow WFH.

    Cons

    They want you to have 12 skills and use two. If you are good in an area, they move you out of it into something else . Much of management seems to be chosen based on personality favorites rather than complementary skillsets. Backwards thinking in many processes. This was a tech division and could not seem to get tech processes done quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Micromanage less by hiring those with solid skills and allowing them to use them.

    Pros

    Strong bank with motivated people with strong customer focus for long term relationships.

    Cons

    The approval process was often more conservative on the pricing or structure side, so easy for competing banks to offer better terms.
    Relationship Managers had too much time needed to cover the credits, handle the administrative reporting, and prospecting at all by the same person.

    Advice to Management

    Add more support for portfolio management to take away the administrative burden on the RM.

    Pros

    Good work life balance, and there are opportunities to move around if you wanted to.

    Cons

    Each part of the org works in silos, and even when goals are defined and not met, there's little consequence for not meeting them.
