I have been working at Wintrust Financial full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Excellent people and training. The Company is growing quickly and there is ample opportunities to learn.

Cons

Salary below market. Disconnect with senior management.

Advice to Management

Provide internal raises and better evaluations, especially to those with less experience and fewer years in the industry. An excellent credit training program, but since you're educating general human capital, must ensure employees are properly compensated. Otherwise they will have an incentive to move taking the education you gave them.

    Lack of growth opportunities; poor communication; very traditional.

    Advice to Management

    Young professionals need more incentive to stay at the company.

    "Quickly growing company that needs to collapse all the different charters and increase efficiency."

    Pros

    Great opportunities for advancement. Highly regarded company within their market. Cash rich which allows one to cater to customers better than they would be able to otherwise. Very flexible with your vacation schedules and family time. Pay is within the normal range.

    Cons

    The company is very top heavy with a lot of SVP and higher employees and much fewer worker bees causing everyone to be hectic at all times. The company is very inefficient with its fifteen charters and I have yet to see a benefit to all the small banks. Their continued purchases of failed banks and cutting 80% + of their employees has caused many departments to be overworked and slow.

    Advice to Management

    Collapse some of the charters to improve efficiency. Slow down and ensure that every department has sufficient support staff and competent management to accomplish goals.
