    The compensation is very low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    More communication from the leadership team. There should be some physical presence.


  2. "Great at first. but the bank became more focused on acquisitions than their own employees. Morale suffered greatly."

    Pros

    Strong Management Team. Willing to promote from within when possible. Job security with most supervisors. Benefits & Vacation were reasonable. Access to managment team was excellent (in the beginning years)!

    Cons

    Morale and doom and gloom attitude need to improve from the top down. The managment team needs to better understand how their visible stress and 'crisis mode' attitudes trickle down and affect the entire employee base and their perceptions about the 'health' and stability of the company. Heavy workload. Little recognition. Some supervisors allow flexible hours & some forbid it. More consistency or understanding needed here. Especially for department changers.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about your employees especially your long-term ones. Every job and every person are replaceable, but then again, so is every company. Understand and respect that employee's lives change, and although they might only appear to be working and functioning at roughly 90% capacity in your eyes, they are working at their full capacity. Everyone has struggles. Don't expect to be granted understanding and respect if you can't show the same in return.
