    I worked at First Midwest Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Support and knowledge of senior management is excellent. Bank has a top-notch benefits program. 401k plan offers profit sharing and an excellent mix of investment options. Employees have access to an above average training department. Company's realistic goals promote work/life balance.

    Cons

    Unfortunately bonuses are below industry average. Company follows the market and is definitely not an innovator. No brand recognition outside of southwest suburban market. Finally, unattractive branch offices.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace technology, invest in a marketing strategy, update appearance of current locations and allow employees horizontal mobility within the organization.

    - Decent opportunities to grow within company's departments
    - Good training program
    - Great benefits

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about changes and don't let it be surprises every time.
