I have been working at City National Bank (Texas) full-time

Pros

The work life balance is good overall, but that's because I'm in a satellite office with some good local managers.

Cons

They don't like to invest in their infrastructure, specifically technology, unless you are in a high margin area of the company. The rest of us are left to suffer through attrition. They really use resource dollars poorly, yet always try to cut costs from areas where there isn't a large amount of waste instead, which is due to lack of any kind of definitive COO.

Advice to Management

Hire a COO that can unify groups within the bank. Ayn Randian resource allocation is a very poor way to run a company that is trying to grow (see Eddit Lampers, Sears).

    I worked at City National Bank (Texas) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not a challenging job, good hours, great job security and I learned a lot of "behind the scenes" of the banking industry. They are knowledgeable and professional.

    Cons

    Regardless, if you have a degree, the pay is HORRIBLE! They will pay you as less as they can get away with.

    No room for advancement, unless you know someone higher in the bank. It's all about who you know. -- and it is a very "clickish" bank.

    Not an enjoyable environment to work in.

    JUDGMENTAL employees, plus promises of raises which are never received.

    Advice to Management

    Lift your employees up and make them look forward to coming to work instead of dreading another day in chaos!

    Stop the politics.

    Don't take advantage of your employees when it comes to their salary.

    Pros

    Well, you are employed & not on a breadline...takes long time in this economy to find another job in these small rural communities.

    Cons

    No Human Resource Mgr. If you have an issue or problem or seek confidentiality on an issue or problem, you have NO ONE. LOTS of hidden rules regarding pay & already low benefits they provide. Managers follow their own rules, change working situations, rules without any management or labor law training. Mgrs rule by intimidation, have "pet" and rest of branch left to suffer. Do & say what they please to employees. Several branches have very large turnover without corp office caring or noticing (customers do, that is why they are not growing as they could). Salaries lowest compared to similar jobs at other local banks. Raises throughout branches (as yes, we all talked to one another) at 2% to tops 50cent hr annually (their annual is about year & half between raises) no matter what additional duties are taken on by an employee. I am not disgruntled with co-workers, many are hard working, customer caring, team builders - shot down/mistreated by mgt. & ignored/forgotten by upper mgt. at corp. office.

    Advice to Management

    Cull out poor Managers! They are ruining reputation in local community with bank and personnel issues even customers are exposed to. Very low morale at so many branches, why don't you care? Low morale & poor management seen by local customers, why don't you care? IF branch mgrs. are doing their jobs well, WHY are they always making excuses for how they treated employees & what they have done to customers?? WHY are you always checking with branch mgrs. on how branch is going and why not survey employees since they are what hold a bank together! INCREASE pay levels & INCREASE benefits. $5000 medical deductible - REALLY???? How do you expect a $9 teller to handle that without bankruptcy?
