    I have been working at Midland States Bank full-time

    Pros

    The Executives are very friendly and show genuine interest in the employees by walking among them and interacting with them. The company strives to build a strong work environment and advancing employee's growth from within the company. Management works with employees to train them to take on different challenges and improve upon new and existing skills. The company takes notice of hard work. The benefits are very generous and rewarding.

    Cons

    Communication can sometimes be an issue, but it's not a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to challenge employees and help them grow within the company. Great job.

    I have been working at Midland States Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture and environment at Midland is fantastic. They give you an unlimited amount of opportunities to strengthen yourself, for the company and as an individual. If you show a desire to advance the managers or directors over your department are very proactive in helping you do so. It is refreshing to see how intrigued upper management is with your performance.

    Cons

    No true cons, I would just like the opportunity to learn more about different departments and branches.

    Advice to Management

    Stay interested and engaged with your employees, it truly helps their motivation when they feel appreciated!

    I have been working at Midland States Bank (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for as a whole. The pay is a little more than some banks in the area.

    Cons

    Not so great if you work at a small branch and your bank manager doesn't know what they are doing. Upper management does not pay attention to who is actually doing all the work.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better review process for the banking center managers. Maybe talk to their employees about what kind of manager they really are, if they are doing their job, or if they even know how to do the thing they should know how to do.

    Pros

    Good work life balance and benefit package. Lots of room for advancement due to all of the growth. I love it here!

    Cons

    I can't think of anything that is a con. With every growing organization there are bumps in the road but I believe management really wants the best for their employees and customers.

    I worked at Midland States Bank (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There aren't any pro's from my judgement.

    Cons

    They are still old fashion and every file is in file cabinets all over instead of scanned into a secure system. I was relieved from there due to documents that I was still in training for being sent off, which most importantly had to go through my trainer and supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Give proper training and an adequate amount of training.

    Pros

    Awesome people to work with, the balance between work-life is great. A growing company that will be competitive in the area in the future.

    Cons

    No training program, basically learned on the fly but help was available when needed. Other than that it was a great experience.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a training program, this is an ideal job for someone out of college or a person with experience. Make sure everyone is on the same page. Promote from within, myself included wanted to move up.
