Pros

the company supports healthy work life balance overall, caveat being that it really depends on your manager. most managers work out fine as the company does make an honest effort to ensure people would fit culturally prior to hiring.

the people make up the culture and are by in large the biggest pro.

Cons

-i joined when the company was much smaller and the feeling of becoming a larger institution is definitely there. that said, in a perfect world this would create more opportunities. catch up here is clearly in order.

Advice to Management

keep your ear to the ground. focus on career advancement and creating opportunities. stay transparent with information. invest more into products and get ahead of the competition.

    Pros

    Good Pay, Good Benefits. Very good Business Leadership Team. Niche market. Credit Team is very good and dedicated.

    Cons

    Online banking Product Group is not very competent, and Arrogant. Very small and unproductive IT Team. Wasting lots of money by having many cross functional teams.

    Advice to Management

    Review effectiveness and leanness of Online Banking Product Team and Information Technology Team. There is lots of room for improvement and cost cutting. May be worthwhile thinking of adopting Cloud Computing model ( IAAS, and SAAS) for IT and Product group.
