    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Very good work/life balance and good benefits. Friendly work environment and plenty of good people who would go out of their way to get the job done right.

    Cons

    Conservative business model from an old school Chicago bank. Depends on what you're looking for in this point of your career. Compensation is not very competitive in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    The bank needs to be more aggressive in its growth prospects. Good talent costs money. Stop hiring consultants to run parts of your business who don't have a clue what they are doing. Foster growth from within with education.
