Pros

Retail management is in tune to the challenges and opportunities of the front-line staff. Therefore, sales goals are typically reasonable and easy to achieve. Sales incentive can be lucrative for this type of position for motivated individuals.

Cons

Management is quick to think idealistic as opposed to realistic. Promotions are often given based on politics as opposed to who possesses the better skill set and/or education.

    Pros

    Empire Bank treats all it's employees with dignity and respect and provides them with continual feedback on job performance. The opportunities for advancement within the company are numerous and Empire Bank will promote an internal employee before hiring and outside applicant. A sales culture exists and is spreading throughout all levels of the bank. Nearly every employee receives the same training on customer service and etiquette, from maintenance to senior management.

    Cons

    The sales culture has yet to become completely fluid in its operation. I experienced many problems with the referral rewards system and often lost bonuses because of it. Some senior management, namely HR, wasn't as effective and professional as other leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Continue fine-tuning iSTEP and spread it through all levels of the bank. Rethink some of the "old" ways of doing business (ex: praying before a meal is not acceptable).


  2. "Good place to work"

    Pros

    People coworkers are very nice. The customers are really friendly and the location is nice. The holidays are a bonus as well. The leave time is wonderful they are very grenerous if you need to time off for family reasons. They truely care about the employees if they have health issues. If you are an older person like I am this is especially important if you have health concerns yourself or if you have a family member that is older and ill. Overall this is a very good place to work and I would recommend it to others and have.

    Cons

    The long hours, the pay isnt the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, listen to customers wants and needs. Give more feedback, make more of an effort to see employees on a one on one basis.
