    My colleagues were really nice and helpful with any questions.

    Great branch manager. Very flexible. Encouraged to advance.

    I worked at FirstMerit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My direct manager truly cared about her staff and went to bat for us many times while i was there. They are supportive of group activities that boost team moral. I never had a problem getting personal time when it was needed.

    Cons

    Higher management didn't seem to care about the people beneath them. Kinda cold. Annual raises stink. Annual, and semi-annual, reviews do not come into play when raises are given, so there's no real incentive to try harder
