    I have been working at Emigrant Bank full-time

    Pros

    Short hours (most employees leave around 5, 6pm the latest), in house cafeteria with pretty great selection, coworkers are for the most part approachable.

    Quite frankly, I come to work to collect a paycheck until I can find my next opportunity.

    Cons

    Where do I begin?!
    -Executive management including bank founder are not forward thinking and not open to innovative ideas. They look for "yes" men, nothing more.
    -HR is at the beck and call of management, does not look out for employees at all. In fact there's probably more turnover in HR than anywhere else!
    -Laughable salary and bonuses for anyone who is not part of management
    -Not many opportunities for growth
    -Terrible benefits
    -Antiquated technologies
    -People look miserable
    -Boring, routine work. No one expects or wants you to do anything that is innovative.

    Advice to Management

    You've created a sinking ship. I'm sure if you didn't already sell your soul for a 6 or 7 figure paycheck you would realize how terrible of a place this is and what to do about it.

    Motivated your employees, make them feel valuable, stop trying to embarrass them by showing silly numbers and who was 1 minute late.

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

    Pros

    I cannot think of a single positive thing about working here. I take the paycheck because I need income, but I am looking for an out. You do NOT want to work here.

    Cons

    Unprofessionalism, blatant racism, acceptance of sexual harassment, in-adherence to government laws, discrimination based upon appearance. HR is a joke and the biggest culprit of the above mentioned horrors.

    Advice to Management

    Pray for your souls.

    Pros

    The workers are great and hard working.

    Cons

    Management fails to recognize an employee hard work. Instead they will notice if their shirt is not appropriate.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your staff more so they won't keep leaving.

    Pros

    Very easy work. No pressure to sell products or anything. Just sit there depositing and dispensing money until you balance your teller box at the end of the day.

    Cons

    No growth opportunity. You pretty much have to wait for someone to die in order for a new position to open up.
