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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Flexible to go out on business calls and networking. Career growth. Good work life balance. Upper management support.

    Cons

    Cutting back on staff. Micro managed. Over worked. Expected to be a Jack of all trades. If something goes wrong all fingers point to you.

    Advice to Management

    Back off on the micromanaging. Too many unnecessary forms that slow down sales production.

    Pros

    good way to get foot into industry and gain some knowledge.
