Pros

Highly collaborative environment where employees are encouraged and expected to network, collaborate internally, both within the department and across departments. Ability and encouragement to find professional interests and strengths and to pursue them as it relates to building the department and the Bank. The Bank provides a lot of information to employees to enhance their work experience and to enhance their ability to perform their jobs. Great benefits. Great work/life balance.

Cons

Some departments are slow in responding to break downs in operations. When things don't work well, employees spend a lot of time trying to convince management there is a problem. It can take a long time at the Bank to see change for the better. The Bank is also slow in responding to poor management performance, sometimes hiring someone not qualified for the position but trying to groom them in hopes they will grow into the position. In the meantime, direct reports experience a high level of frustration with the manager who is struggling. The Bank needs to be more open to new growth opportunities for the Bank.

Advice to Management

Senior management needs to seek feedback from employees to make sure midlevel managers are performing according to expectations. Management needs to ask for feedback from employees who are client facing and be open to changing policies and procedures to make sure the Bank is providing an excellent client experience. A fairer process in decision making about which employees are selected to be a part of committees and teams that are charged with providing growth and guidance to the Bank. Their retirement benefits are generous but there are not enough investment choices in their 401(k) program.

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

    Pros

    Good place to work. New ownership is concerned about employees again and the overall image of the bank in the community.

    Cons

    Not much room for internal growth. Hiring seems to be mainly outside of bank. Long term employees seem to be expendable.
