    Pros

    Good benefits and improving technology. Very nice coworkers and immediate supervisors. Nice surroundings in which to work, with the main office located in a suburban area with free covered parking. There is never a sense of micromanagement within the local team & employees feel valued and respected. Associates have a strong sense of community and camaraderie & there is widespread participation in volunteer projects to help various organizations.

    Cons

    Smaller local consumer presence in NC and not many people are familiar with the bank. Upper management in home office (Birmingham) does not seem to be very connected to the local markets. Promotions and pay increases are very difficult to come by, with new hires being brought in for more than existing employees are paid. Retention efforts are do not seem to be high on HR's priority list.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider cost cutting measures which negatively affect your existing human resources and make every effort to let them know you value loyal experienced associates more than new people hired from other banks.
