    Peoples is a stable and strong bank been which has been in business for the past 175 years. That is the best about the establishment.

    I worked at People's United Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Experience in Credit/Commercial Banking
    Very Good Work/Life Balance
    Management overall was supportive.
    Most coworkers were friendly, helpful, a pleasure to work with.
    They take time to train you.
    ESOP benefits.
    401k match was better than industry average.
    I'd give the place 3.5/5 stars if not for the manager to be mentioned below in the cons.

    Cons

    One of the managers was a bully and psychological manipulator. He drove me to leave the company.
    Politics were thick (driven in-part by the manager mentioned prior and his "posse" he created. He would spread misinformation or blatant lies about people he did not like and cut them down behind their backs while saying nice things to their face. Run, don't walk, RUN away from this guy. He's also extremely charismatic, so the bullying was subtle, but ongoing and horrid).
    Pay was below market for the area.
    Work culture was very casual. Lots of gossip.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the toxic/bully manager. I would have stayed had he not been there. This is especially a shame that this Machiavellian person is here ruining the culture, as I could tell management was trying to treat employees well and was willing to go to bat for them. The bully knew how to never bully in front of the wrong person and say all the right things to more senior management. Truly toxic. Additionally, raise compensation for employees to market in order to keep them longer. Google let's us know when we're being underpaid.

    I have been working at People's United Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Come and go freely. Location. Gym. Closed for Bank holidays. No problem taking days off when needed if using PTO.

    Cons

    Very low salary for cost of living and your worth. Branch manager has favorites in the office that actually run things/make decisions. Two sides of office being run differently, one side micromanaged the other is not. Management doesn’t want to make changes to improve overall outcome. Employee morale is tanking.

    Advice to Management

    Restructuring is a good thing. Communication is a must. Time for new talent.

    Management is pretty easy to talk to.
    Pay isn't bad for the work
    Opportunities are all over the place. Just need to be willing to go get them.

    Cons

    Human Resources is terrible
    Training is non-existent
    Benefits seem to get worse every year
