    Pros

    Flexible attendance policy. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    You're stuck in your position if you don't know the right people. The company doesn't follow job progression and regularly hires new managers that know nothing about banking. There is often no lead or management support on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    The pressure on your reps in the call center is unbearable. The metrics used to determine performance are off. Your employees are working on their breaks to keep up. Apparently upper management said that's okay. Morale is low but no one in management even cares.

    Pros

    Good pay if you work very fast and harass management to pay you tier 2.

    Cons

    From seeing it on the inside this bank is no different than all the others. Fake mission statements and all the rest. Basically you are paid well for an easy job but not to question the ethics of the higher ups. And oh boy, if you question them backing out of their NRA client good luck keeping your job as they will likely hire an immigrant or some autistic person to take your spot. In other words you can truly wish to make the company better and not fake their public relations but you'll get canned for being a free thinker. And from experience, the pay only goes so far until you feel like a sell out and all the old people trying to make it to retirement complaining about what medications they are on or immigrants that are hired for a tax write off make you want to just leave. Moral of the story, looks great on the outside but rotten on the inside as to get into management you must be willing to tell people what you think they want to hear and that's a direct quote from their HR. It's a place where you can get a 1000$ bonus to your check from the Trump tax plan and the people there will still get so political as to spit on the money they get. This review is not to take political sides and it doesn't matter who votes for who but it does matter when most of your co-workers have no common sense and the management is just about appeasing some office in the "Ivory" tower downtown. So take the job and get what you can if you're willing. But don't plan on getting anywhere with it unless you make some liberal connections in the tower.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up to your "sour" workers who don't want to be there and hire real people with common sense. Also moving your offices away from the crew in an effort to hide wont make it better either.

    Pros

    Work life balance, good benefits, pay is better than competitors, great people. Employees are respected and given a voice, even people near the bottom of the food chain like tellers.

    Cons

    Dealing with customers can be difficult, sales pitches can be annoying. Bankers have sales goals but upper management is thankfully not overly aggressive in meeting them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing
