Pay is a joke, way behind industry standard. Recently financial health of the bank has become a question. Certain parts of the bank are being drug down by the retail branches.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Small but large community bank. Still a young bank. Has the potential to compete with large banks.

    Cons

    Its not what you know its who you know attitude. Senior leadership, Human Resources are not well trained. Have many employees who were trained in position of which they have no credentials. Many empoyees specially in Human Resources have no degrees and have many department which have many employees who are more qualified than their managers and have more experience. The Bank is going toward younger less experience higher paid managers who are "Yes Man"

    Advice to Management

    You have many smart and caring employees. Seek their advise and be sincere if what you hear is not alway what you were expecting. Just because you are a Senior leader does not make you smarter than anyone else. If you ask for employees advise do use it. Do not just go through the mention and seem like you care


  2. "Not a career for long term"

    Pros

    Only if you plan to stay a Teller the rest of your life. The people you serve is about the best thing you face while employed here.

    Cons

    No one cares about anything but there own job. There is much to much effort taken on meetings that go nowhere and management time spent doing nothing more than watching you do the job. If someone at the Executive level really spent the time to see what was needed to be competitive as a "business" bank then there would be a much better effort given from the front line. I also have seen that there is little understanding of how a real business development effort could be run, instead we try things by those that never have been on the front line.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to work with your employees. I think they are top heavy and have too many layers of management to really know what is needed for success.
