    I have been working at People's United Bank full-time

    Pros

    It's a very challenging place to work at. I have found that employees are rewarded for their hard work, and that the work and life balance is extremely healthy.

    Cons

    I do not have any cons other than navigating some of the internal politics that can take place in the workforce. You have to deal with that anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    I would say continue doing what you've been doing. It's a positive place to work and I think that management has done a very nice job of rewarding the people who work hard.

    Pros

    Great learning in regards to important doctrines and safety practices - an opportunity to build a strong work ethic and learn about handling money responsibly. Overall a good brand with New England roots and a classy presentation in the community.

    Cons

    Highly sales oriented and punitive in practice internally. At times a culture of resentment and/or angst. Hard to grow positivity and Team closeness in the workplace due to high competition in market and amongst coworkers.

    I have been working at People's United Bank full-time

    Pros

    I will say that I'm impressed with the "hybrid" banker style of no tellers .

    Cons

    Favoritism ! While it will never be admitted the top performers usually intimidate their immediate manager . Thus being overlooked for career advancement. The typical corporate steak on a treadmill " let re-evaluate in 6 months " aka let us milk you a lil more by then maybe you will have quit , or settled for the cents on the dollar raise . Only to observe other under performing staff (based on sales excel spreadsheets not opinion) get promotions, raises and certifications simply because they were offered a job at another location ...

    Advice to Management

    If you aren't going to pay for performance individually. Find a way to retain the staff that generates revenue, stop catering to the staff that simply brown nose ... -with love and appreciation

    Great part time job to make some money on the side, very flexible not too difficult to learn. Great culture and people

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, good PTO, decent pay, good training, good co-workers. Great start for the banking industry

    Cons

    Sucks working in a Stop & Shop, the hours are horrible. In the Stop & Shop branches you had to work Sundays and the Traditional branches were closed on Sundays. All the branches in the market were short staffed and Traditional staff members would never help out the Stop & Shop branches. Recently People's acquired Suffolk County National Bank and the conversion was a nightmare. Many of the People's Management was let go and replaced by SCNB employees. Absolutely no work life balance.
