    Pros

    Great learning environment. They tell you exactly what you need to get promoted within.

    Cons

    stop & shop branch hours. Upper management is hardly seen throughout branches. Upper management typically isn't settled with plans or seek advice from lower staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front end staff they are heart of the bank. They drive success. Get to know their strength and weakness. Survey employees for pro and cons of retail business.

    Pros

    PTO &Co-workers
    Training class instructors really want you to learn

    Cons

    Depends on the branch I'm sure, however management really promotes a terrible work environment.

    My first solo experience with management was being screamed at for asking a question. Higher ups will lie to your face without batting an eye.

    HR is not there for you, they're there for management.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of getting rid of, or driving out, those who would like to work in a pleasant atmosphere, try looking for the root of the problem.

    Many opportunities for advancement.

    Pay is too low for the jobs you're asked to do.
    Unrealistic sales goals for a dying industry (Branch Banks)

    Advice to Management

    Actually work as much as your employees.
    Don't put too much pressure on employees to reach unattainable goals.

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

    Pros

    Good Benefits; Parking in garage on premises; Many nice and hard-working personnel in select areas, however very under-appreciated.

    Cons

    My superior and various personnel within the executive ranks outright lie and provide false statements in efforts to protect major issues impacting the safeguarding of customer and employee information, allowing for vulnerabilities to identity theft, etc. When issues brought to the forefront, even Human Resources will provide false information. A very vindictive and back-stabbing environment within select managment personnel. Unfortnately, no one to file a complaint with when HR is there to protect management at all costs and lies to do such. The arrogance of the CEO and various other managers is beyond belief. They believe they can do whatever they want, with no repercussions. They even pressure one to donate their own funds to the bank's political campaigns so they can send it where they want and who they like. It is unfortunate, as there are many good people and managers who have to accept this to keep their jobs. The culture has no desire to promote integrity and ethical protocols. There are none.

    Advice to Management

    The Board of Directors should remove the CEO and many other executives and managers who have created a culture of no integrity and ethics. The current management cannot solve tis as they are responsible for false statements, lying, etc.
