    I have been working at First Busey full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities for movement through and up the company. Hard work is rewarded. Intelligence is recognized. Top performers are properly compensated. Consistent pay growth. Most benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Many initiatives don’t support all associates. Many initiatives die very quickly. Culture is inconsistent throughout the company. Base pay is low. Health care is mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on reducing costs. Eliminate dead weight from mergers. Hire for culture, and hold people accountable for treating other departments with respect. Show that no department is more important than another, otherwise state that one is.

    Pros

    Busey leadership is strong, and they are always on the leading edge of new developments. The people that work there are great and there is always a positive atmosphere. Busey is involved in the various communities where their offices are located and many of their employees volunteer in community activities.

    Cons

    Supervisors are not always alert to underlying causes of job performance. I think this is true of many companies.

    Pros

    Hires from within, good incentives for reaching sales goals, upper management is very involved with employees, good benefits, a comfortable work environment.

    The pay is low in comparison to other banks.

    Advice to Management

    Consider an annual bonus for ALL employees regardless of status in b5 and raising pay to match other banking institutions in our area.
