    I have been working at Comerica full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensation is slightly higher than other retail banks in region. Conservative lending strategy means affluent and loyal clients.

    Cons

    Steep sales goals for loans, especially HELOCS AND BELOCS. Not many high traffic locations means you have to seek out business rather than business walking in. Technology and products are behind the curve.

    Advice to Management

    Increase focus on technology for employees and clients.

    I have been working at Comerica full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Comerica generally cares about their employees. The is resistance against outsourcing. Working conditions and environments are good to excellent. The company put a lot of focus and training into improving employee behaviors.

    Very low employee turnover in IT.

    Cons

    Process improvement has been identified as a benefit so a lot of work has been done to improve processes. However, we have processed ourselves to death in several areas. Too many processes and controls when they aren't needed just to say the process has been changed with little real measurement of if the change was positive.

    Staff is aging in IT. Many of the key resources are either already at retirement age or very close. Key people have been retiring at an alarming rate as the economy has been improving. industry pressure to do more with less staff have worked against bringing in replacement staff in time to get them trained and up to speed. It also causes problems because some of the senior are twice as productive as junior staff that hasn't completely developed making a one to one replacement not equivalent..

    Advice to Management

    Comerica is highly critical of their managers. Most tend to focus performance reviews on the few things that went wrong and forget about the thousands of things that went right. This is common to the IT corporate culture. It would improve moral and productivity to focus more on achievements than just misses alone.

    Advancement in management is almost non-exsistant for the past several years. Most new managers have been hired from the outside because internal managers and staff are rarely seen as acceptable candidates for promotion versus outside staff without a background at Comerica.
