For those who work under major banks, what do your employee discounts look like? I’m not talking about free bank accts lol, that should be mandatory, but more or less like auto, electronic, gym, and hotel discounts? We literally have intro discounts that are from vendors that give non employees the same exact discounts in the mail, for example Hello Fresh 65% off your first order…. I can literally check my mail and get the same discount without being an employee lmao

I decided to leave my last role as a finance manager without having anything lined up. I left the role due to an extremely toxic environment, zero growth and a manager who kept gunning for my head. Never left a role previously without anything lined up, also have a pretty solid resume. I have an opportunity at a massive company (over 100k employees) but it’s a senior analyst role, so essentially a step back in my career in terms of title. Do you think I should go for it or wait it out?

Upper management really cares about you and your team both personally and professionally. Ive had several professional jobs in this industry and this is the first place I can honestly say I can see myself retiring from.

Employee Centered with an open door management style. Family like atmosphere
Dollar Bank is antiquated and stuck in their old ways.

There are many great people who work in the branches. Most branch colleagues are supportive and provide help when needed. The company is good about respecting a fair work life balance as well as there are understanding if a personal need arises. Dollar Bank has a good training department and provides a solid basic foundation in banking operations.
There is not any communication between departments and no consistancy in getting the correct answer to policies and operations. Qualified women are consistantly passed up for advancement by men. There are few opportunities for career growth and advancement between departments. Dollar Bank is a good entry level bank to learn the basics but it is not a good move for a career women who is looking to stay and grow with the company.2

Dollar Bank is a friendly work environment.
Dollar Bank does not pay competitive salaries in information technology departments.2

Coming into banking with zero experience, Dollar Bank has a really great training program to really get you in the swing of things. I thoroughly enjoy everyone I work with/have worked with throughout my time being here!
The technology used is outdated and there are minimal incentives for reaching and exceeding goals3

Customer service oriented Career advancement
Leadership seems to be losing their way/focus when it comes to why people bank and work with Dollar.

The people and the camaraderie and the events that are held consistently to keep those internal relationships going, health benefits, vacation policy.
Dreadfully low pay which is exponentially worse if you work your way up in the company. That’s not a typo. Employees who work their way are awarded thousands less than their peers brought in from the outside with similar or less experience. Management has adapted a new sales culture never before pushed at Dollar Bank. A once customer-driven bank is now nothing more than a cheap mini clone of Wells Fargo—foaming at the mouth for more numbers and cross-selling of ancillary products with ZERO reward for employees who excel, except for faster promotions for those who excel and pay no attention to ethics. Dollar Bank wants to be a player with the bigger banks and finance companies but refuses to pay their employees a proper wage for performing as such. No one works on commission, meaning you’re compensated no more regardless of production volume, but management still expects aggressive and unreasonable sales goals. I was once excited about the idea of spending my career there, but this once-respected regional employer stopped practicing what they preached.9

Great company to work for. They are fair and care about their employees. A real sense of teamwork, too. I've worked for many other banks. By far the best working environment. Promotions are real. I have seen many good employees move up through the ranks.
Salary is disappointingly low. The difference in salary between Dollar Bank and other local financial institutions is significant.2
