    Horrible work environment 18 of the 20 branch managers are clueless. Almost every employee is afraid of losing there job for no apparent reason. Managers are afraid to make decisions on simple approvals.
    Horrible systems so outdated they constantly crash and they are developing new systems that are worse then the old. Horrible customer service can offer our customers simple service (can't issue debit cards at the branch it litterly takes 4 business days.
    A revolving door with Premier advisors and Premier Banker.
    Commission suck discretionary bonus always at the low end
