Multiple areas to move between and learn about the financial business. Oppurtunity for growth. Some departments are great about showing how much they value your work.

Pay for some positioin was on the low side.

    I have been working at First Midwest Bank part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good starting pay for little experience.

    Cons

    Too pushy on referral goals. They expect referrals in the first 3 months even though they claim that you don't need any until after you're done with training. They hire too many people and then downsize after hiring more employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don't have your employees push products on the same clients continually.

    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.
