    I have been working at North Shore Bank (Wisconsin) full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    North shore promotes from within.

    Cons

    Corporate employees are rude when you need help. VP and DM expect you ro follow rules but get mad even you don't make exceptions for customers. You get the title, but not the pay. Only make $2.50 more than the tellers.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, co workers are amazing at branch level

    Cons

    If you are an minority, you don't or never will matter. If you make a mistake when your a minority they fire you. If you are not a minority the take you in s office and have s stern talk. Corporate workers talk down to you and are quick to lie on you. Working for a loan shark is what you'll be doing.

    I have been working at North Shore Bank (Wisconsin) full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    The people are by far the best part of the bank. They are generally very friendly and helpful, and they try to help each other out instead of tear them down. NSB is also ahead of the curve with technology, which is great to be a part of.

    Cons

    There are extremely limited opportunities for growth once you get to the management level. They also do a LOT of micromanaging of your daily activities.

    Advice to Management

    Allow some positions to be filled in the North District. Don't micromanage your teams if they are having success - it's unnecesary, overwhelming, and frustrating.
