I worked at KeyBank full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Loved working with my clients and most colleagues. Vacation and benefits above average.

Cons

Advancement opportunities typically not based on merit, but HR-related policy. As company is not lean and has had high expense ratios for an extended period, there is a constant outsourcing/layoff threat that is a distraction for many good workers and a productivity killer. Rather than soberly address certain challenges or poor performing staff that are social acquaintances, they typically reorganize business units between 1 and 4 times every year, so you constantly are assigned new/different managers who know this time is not permanent which leads to inattentiveness in the performance review process as they have new senior managers they need to do the self-preservation dance for. Most managers are not as transparent as in healthy organizations: after all, why share a strategy so your staff can productively think about it in advance and make timely contributions? Maybe it is all intentional as they attempt to construct New Chennai, Ohio.

Advice to Management

Turn in resignations and let's find some adults to right the ship. Pick a strategy and ride it out for more than a few quarters of earnings reports and if you'd rather strip it for parts, rip the band-aids off and get it over with for the sake of the dedicated employees.
