Advice to Management

I worked at Century Bank & Trust for a while till 2011, as bad as it was, I really needed the money so I stayed as long as possible. However, if you care about your professional development and career advancement do not work at Century Bank & Trust. Managers at this bank do not promote good employees plus going above and beyond to get things done often goes unnoticed. Good employees often quit working here after a few years. Overall, I would not encourage someone who cares about his or her careers to work here.

My Advise to management is that good and talented employees are hard to find, so please take care of your best employees. Management needs to provide better compensation, promote and mentor good employees. Management also needs to spend some money and update the IT infrastructure.
