    I worked at Fremont Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Location was decent for Tri Valley residents

    Cons

    Volatile environment, no management support, poor training, no team atmosphere, quick to lay off, no loyalty or respect for people.

    Advice to Management

    Even times of slow volume, when lay offs might be expected, it is very cold and disrespectful to have manager who you didn't ever report to, call you at home late in the evening, and tell you your job is no longer, and you can pick up your belongings down the street the next day. At the very least, have the decency to speak to them in person, and allow them to collect their own belongings. The worst treatment ever. Thoroughly disgusted.

    I worked at Fremont Bank (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Team. Good group of people. Committed to the community and committed to running a good organization.

    Cons

    A little small at times. Bank is family owned and the family members can be a out of touch with the day to day running of the bank which can make management feel disconnected.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the bank. The bank provides a good service and more people in the bay area deserve a community bank like Fremont Bank.

    I worked at Fremont Bank (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company has been around since 1964. Very established in the San Francisco Bay Area. Good A paper quality loans. Good in philanthropy.

    Cons

    Mostly a family run company with long term employees at the top. Can be difficult to move into top management, etc.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to meet clients and build a friendly relationship with them. Got along pretty well with everyone at the branch. Incentives kept me motivated to meet personal sales goals.

    Cons

    At the time, the branch was losing key individuals that took forever to replace because nothing could get approved. Monthly branch sales goals were rarely met due to lack of staff, but executives and administration didn't care. Sales seemed to be most important to higher ups, even though this branch had the same older clientele, who really don't need another credit card at 80 years old.

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate of demographics around a branch location. Get new hires
