Pros

UCB has a good benefits package. The paid time off was very reasonable. The perks such as employee loan rates were excellent.

Cons

While the benefits package was good, the health insurance was fairly expensive compared to other places I had worked. There was very little recourse at a higher level in dealing with problems with local management.

Advice to Management

Take a look at local management. There are many in those positions that do not know how to effectively deal with personnel issues and many good people have left the bank because of that.

    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.
