    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Palmetto had excellent senior leadership that that moved forward with United. I have faith they will address the following cons.

    Cons

    Lack of top down communication or cross department communication - everybody doesn't seem on the same page about what's going on. Needs investment in technology from employee perspective (systems, application). Technology is acceptable from client standpoint (mobile banking, mobile deposit)

    Advice to Management

    You've got great leaders from Palmetto. Use and empower them.

    I have been working at United Community Banks full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The job is very easy and the work environment is comfortable.

    Cons

    Higher management does not actually care about the people that are "the face of the bank" & locations are constantly short-staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your employee's have to say. Hire help when it is needed. Reward employees on accomplishments.
