    I worked at Comerica full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

    Autonomy, great culture, great people, defined mission

    Lack of career advancement. Limited divisions.

    I understand the bank and its culture, so I realize that they really have no control of creating a larger workforce.

    I have been working at Comerica full-time

    Pros

    Ability to do deals, strong credit culture yet collaborative and persuadable. Merit based advancement opportunities. Lots of opportunities to grow within organization for driven people, particularly for those with marketing skills.

    Cons

    No BDOs so deal flow is dependent on the RMs and/or senior management. Pay is below industry averages as are bonuses, but that may be in exchange for having historically better than average work-life balance arrangements.

    Advice to Management

    Increase incentive compensation, and change from annual to quarterly.
