    I worked at Northern Bank and Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I couldn't think of one pro if I wanted to honestly. Maybe the fact that they allowed holiday decorations around Christmas but even those were cheap and mostly broken.

    Cons

    Where does one person even begin. No future growth opportunities whatsoever. Upper management who treat you literally like dogs. Banking fees that rip off customers and deceive them. Random branch audits with finger-pointing and deceptive performance management practices. No training whatsoever and outdated, complicated banking systems.

    Advice to Management

    Nobody would listen anyway so why bother.

    I worked at Northern Bank and Trust part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly Branch Staff
    Friendly Customers

    Cons

    Underpaid
    They are always trying to make changes and don't bother to tell other employees.
    Some managers do make change and when you follow the change the manager plays: I never said that before.
    Supervisors accuse employees without asking what happened before.
