    I worked at First Federal Bank (South Carolina) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They pay a competitive wage, encourage education, provide a good product to the customer. promote and allow good stewardship in the community.

    Cons

    stopped promoting from within in 2011. made an intiative to bring down the silos between management divisions, but just ended up making them stronger. customers may question why we change products so often, cant you get it right the first time.

    Advice to Management

    work harder to keep the management team in place that you worked so hard and so long to develop.

    Pros

    very good benefits and a generous employee loan program for your mortgage
    there are a number of in-house training classes offered
    company seems to be wanting to grow

    information isn't shared that well across business channels

    need to increase technology

    communicate with employees more about what is going on with the company. Especially when there are a number of changes going on it would be nice to get quarterly updates.
