    Back off. Reward for other things than just sales, like retaing the customers you do have, providing great customer service.

    Pros

    Strong credit training program which essentially is preparing analysts for other banks.

    Cons

    If you know someone, you'll be promoted into a desired spot, if not then you'll not be offered the small business positions.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent.

    The bank is still stuck in the 60's systems & training wise. People are training people & they are doing it all wrong.

    Pay more attention to your employees & stop setting them up for failure.

    I worked at Comerica full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Co-workers in banking center. Good opportunity to start in financial industry. Hours are good, pay is decent. Generous PTO.

    Cons

    Claims to be a Texas based Bank but operations are all in Michigan. May be a good fit in other markets but not a good fit for Texas.

    Sales goals are all that matter in the retail bank. Retail bank claims that customer service and building relationships with customers are the main priorities but they really don't care what you do as long as you meet your goals and complete all the required metrics.

    Incentive comp isn't that great for personal bankers even if you meet and exceed your goals.

    Over emphasis on JD Power Surveys being perfect. Daily conference calls to review area scores. Management expects you to tell the customer to give the highest score possible on survey.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure there is any way to change this organization. It's so set in it's ways, change seems almost impossible.

    I worked at Comerica part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Comerica is a slower paced bank. I worked here part time but still received a full benefits package (dental, medical, vision). The hours were flexible working part time.

    Cons

    Technology was outdated. It took a long time to process transactions.
