    I worked at Commerce Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Standard bank as far as benefits. Ability to buy extra vacation. Nice art collection. Raises of about 1% each year.

    Cons

    “Blue Chip” items are supposed to improve the bank but what it comes down too is added responsibility on the already overworked employee. Specifically in commercial banking, where turnover has been much higher in recent years. The office has become increasingly male dominated and the top few are the ones that control everything, with no desire to give a damn about the rest of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach on edge concepts and give the employees some support to do their job.

    I worked at Commerce Bank full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Professional environment with decent managers.
    Good people to work with.
    People do their best.
    People are always learning how to do their job better.

    Cons

    Manage is very bonus driven and does not spend funds on everything needed or even required for the industry and employees.
    Management is changing over quite a bit and there is an increasing number of significantly less experienced management.
    Management has focused on hiring a majority of inexperienced staff and training them internally, which does not always instruct the new employees on the processes necessary for proper operations, mostly because as noted, many of the management is trending to be less experienced (and fully knowledgeable) themselves and do not always provide adequate direction and basis for procedural functions.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a significant number of experienced managers and senior staff so proper and effective processes and procedures as well as the basis for such can be provided to staff building up their knowledge and experience.

    I have been working at Commerce Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, no micro-managing, provide the right tools and environment to get the job done

    Cons

    Very political, was put in many situations where my job was to deal with political BS instead of managing the project

    Advice to Management

    Protect individuals from being put in the middle of impossible situations to manage because company politics was more important to leadership than the status of the project

    I worked at Commerce Bank part-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed where I trained. Loved the actual location of my place of employment, I lived within walking distance. Hours were nice. I was able to go to school also.

    Cons

    Hated where I was transferred to actually work. The staff was very katty and spoke bad about the clients behind their backs. They were rude to me.

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements (depends on manager)
    Work/Life Balance

    Cons

    Things can get really slow. IT at a bank involves lots of red tape.
    Lots of change-over in middle management so you don't know what you'll get from month to month.
