Current Employee - Relationship Banker in Sarasota, FL
Current Employee - Relationship Banker in Sarasota, FL
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Benefits, Bankers Hours, Co Workers, Every day clients, Sales experience and training.

Cons

Unrealistic sales goals, Managers treat you like a number. Unless you go to the Leadership Development Program you won't get promoted. Politics in branch. Everybody fighting for a promotion. Hopefully you get a good branch with a nice manager who are far and few between.

Advice to Management

Try to really care about those who work under you instead of treating them like a number.

    Current Employee - Relationship Teller in Miami, FL
    Current Employee - Relationship Teller in Miami, FL
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Initial training is very good.
    The base pay is O.K. for the position.
    Cluster/Area management is accessible
    There are opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Workload is heavy in reference to the amount of time given to complete assignments.

    Discouraged from working overtime to complete impossible workload.

    Sales goals are unreasonable because they are not only based on new accounts and referrals, but also take into consideration the balances clients maintain.

    Promotions seem to be on a who-you-know basis.

    Management will regularly promote/demote employees depending on the numbers they want to meet. Employees are pieces on a chessboard.

    Operations are constantly changing and they typically hinder the sales process.

    Ongoing training is very self-directed. But there is little to no time to complete it.
