    Pros

    NYCB is a really tight knit group of workers who will do everything they can to make sure you succeed at the company. If you work hard, it doesn't go unnoticed.

    Cons

    Due to the small size of the bank and the regulations imposed on banks of this size, there isn't a lot of room for growth.

    Pros

    Competitive cd rates for very conservative clients.

    Cons

    The company doesn’t invest in their employees. 401k is not matched. Within the last two years the Company has put in place budgets were branches are limited to ordering supplies which are crucial to running a business . Example: not enough money to purchase paper, cartridges for the printers as well as toilet paper. The company is inundated with paperwork. Last I heard they are closing several locations within the Florida market as well as other branches within the family of banks. Hard working employees are not appreciated and taken for granted. They promote from time to time who they like though the subject at hand lacks experience. Once in the position the one promoted ends up leaving the company within a few month.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees specially does that are loyal.
