Pros

I loved saying that I work for a bank. Being that I am in college, it's the best job I can get since I am stil considered 'unskilled' is i try to apply for a respectable job....beats being a macy's slave that's for sure!! Also, your coworkers are more educated and professional compared to sleazebags at dead-end mall jobs...lastly, you get to make friends with your regular customers.

Cons

managers play favorites like no other. There is very little room for growth unless you kiss the boss's a$$...

Advice to Management

Please treat all employees fairly. Also, dont be rude/condescending when offering constructive criticism. Lastly, always make sure that you do not discriminate if someone needs time off for a disability.

    Pros

    Their benefits are pretty good. Tuition reimbursement is nice (whatever you are studying must somewhat relate to the job). The paid time off is generous and for the most part flexible. They have a fair policy for people with children that have random times when they need to be absent from work (in fact for those of us without children, it sometimes seems a little too fair). Supervisors are for the most part nice and accommodating as long as you are someone that performs average or better. Pay is pretty good (depending on the position), especially if you are willing to put more than the average effort into your job.

    Cons

    Almost zero advancement opportunity. If you are very lucky, keep your mouth shut and are somewhat personable, you may eventually rise one or two levels in the company after having worked there for 7+ years. However, middle to upper management all seems to be brought in from outside so there's no real room for growth. They do not reward hard work, intelligence and ability to contribute. Communication is very poor throughout the company, and getting worse. The company is getting too big to effectively manage itself.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and find ways to better utilize talented employees. Upper management needs to start thinking about ways to streamline processes in order to help their employees perform better. Right now all upper management seems to be interested in is coming up with more and more over-complicated rigid procedures, scripting and processes all for the purpose of making their position seem more important.
