I worked at Citizens Republic Bancorp full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Employees were generally friendly, compensation was good for the geographic area (Flint, MI), and there were fun events taking place from time to time.

Cons

Managers were more likely to hire their former colleagues from other banks than to promote from within, so it was somewhat discouraging.

Advice to Management

Management should focus more on development of talented employees and providing opportunities for career development. Most of the managers I saw hired were from other banks. Most career movement in the bank seemed to be lateral.

    I have been working at Citizens Republic Bancorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    positive atmosphere, long time clients bring a homey atmosphere

    Cons

    They were very nonsales oriented until the 2000's. They tried several different systems that didn't seem to work. Upper management was just too old school.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize employees based on merit and how much profit they bring to the company, not on how many widgets they sell
