Approves of CEO

Pros

Autonomy, pay for performance, able to give individual attention to customers, flexible schedule. fosters a decent work life balance and promotes from within. Is demanding, but reasonable, oftentimes has a lack of focus as an organization and/or changes direction on priorities.

Cons

communication can be an issue, top-down management, workload can be overwhelming, sometimes the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, could use more help in support roles. Limited upward mobility. To ease thes issues, perhaps managment should consider more structure and guidance on issues, beter understanding of goals and objective of the organization, better training and learning opportunties

Advice to Management

More structure and guidance on issues, beter understanding of goals and objective of the organization, better training and learning opportunties

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Bank that is local to communities. Not in city centers, branches in burbs.

    Cons

    Very out of date technology wise, there was no "helpline" for staff, automation was almost non exsistant. Micro-managed to the enth degree.

    Advice to Management

    Allow branches to cultivate and develope their own style. As long as branches are scoring well in customer surveys, allow them to think out of the box. Understand your business will come from servicing your customers, not from attending fundraisers and Chamber meetings.


  2. "Amazing company"
