    Pros

    Good environment with positive atmosphere. Its great working with loyal customers who believe in that " small town banking feel " !

    Cons

    Negative press has been discouraging recently but there is nothing that can be done about that. The media likes to tell their stories and that has affected everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a great job overall. Good practices exemplified by management in navigating a tough recession for everyone have made everyone feel confident in the way the company is being run.
