    I worked at Midfirst Bank part-time

    Pros

    Good pay; good atmosphere; the training was done well; and incentives are great

    Cons

    You get thrown into sales pretty quickly, and forced to bug people about new products and things. I got yelled at more than once for not trying to up-sell a customer.
    It just taught me I wasn't made for sales!

    Pros

    As long as you have a good team this is a great place to work. The pay is decent and the company does its best to reward its employees.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up. Managers make you jump through hoops before giving you a chance to advance. Sales requirements are almost impossible for some. Unless you are accustomed to having to meet a sales goal this may not be a job you'd like. Very old fashioned establishment so rules are very strict.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a chance. Tellers might be at the bottom but they work harder than anyone in the branch.

    Pros

    Good benefits, depending on your department there are some excellent career paths. Nice people and a family environment where you can grow

    Cons

    Formulaic raise once a year, no bonus. Too much bureaucracy and documentation. A lot of boring, fat people. Stagnant after a while. Lack of communication. Hard to get rid of ineffective vps

    Advice to Management

    Embrace youth and fresh ideas. Conservatism is too strong.
