      Negative Outlook
      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Fremont Bank full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      They have good coffee and free coffee

      Cons

      Terrible products, incredible pushy sales environment the worst I ever been in and I have worked in sales my whole life. They'd expect you to meet insane quotas and put you on blast corporate wise when you don't with absurd lists with your name on that will be emailed to every single employee.

      Advice to Management

      Work on improving products and marketing instead of expecting bankers to pull a rabbit out of a hat.

      Approves of CEO

      I worked at Fremont Bank full-time for more than 19 years

      Pros

      When Rates are Down work is Highly Available

      Cons

      Rates are High: Layoffs at the Financial Institution has been going on for decades (nothing new).

      Advice to Management

      This industry should always be explained to Associates is risky. I've have since moved on, but occasionally run into past Associates that were there for over 15+ years and now looking for better opportunities or found other jobs outside of banking more stable, Those working under the Executive team or higher management will also like to be able to retire and also take care of their loved ones without financially suffering....
