I worked at Cole Taylor Bank full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Very aggressive growth plan, the leadership team is very observant of individual performance both for the sales force and the operations team. This group has a very impressive track record in mortgage banking, they have applied what they have learned along the way and this venture seems to be bringing out the best of those experiences.

Cons

Maybe growing a little too fast, always a challenge. A clerk could easily get lost in the shuffle if they are not willing to go the extra mile on a very regular basis. Be prepared for a lot of hours at the office if you want to be a standout employee in this group.

Advice to Management

Keep doing in growth mode what you were doing when putting the foundation together. they had a very balanced approach to building the foundation, equal time was given to operations and sales. That is much harder to do as you get bigger, remember how valuable that balance was in the beginning.

    Pros

    Great close knit feel. Small enough bank to allow an analyst to make a material difference but big enough to provide competive benefits. Friendly, competent associates.

    Cons

    Below average management reporting applications. Below market total compensation. Below average work/life balance due little remote access and work-from-home potential and too few human resources.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better management reporting applications for improved employee efficiency/effectiveness and allow more work/life balance to promote more diverse family/lifestyle situations through remote access.
