    Pros

    Very focused on the client. Sales targets are reasonable. The biggest focuses this year are collaboration and enabling our clients to use digital banking.

    Cons

    The only problem with retail banking is the salary. The bonus is nice at the end of the year but honestly it's still not a high enough paying job for the stress, amount of work, and outside training required to get into the role.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but maybe review the pay scales. There has been no change in 2017 despite the cost of living (housing) flying through the roof.

    Conservative institution. Friendly work environment. Great work life balance.

    Non-client facing departments are just treated like cost centers.

    Pros

    They treat you well, teach you at a great pace and make you feel wanted and valued at all times. There work life balance goal makes it great and keeps you stress free almost all the time. Cannot say enough good things about this company

    Cons

    There are no cons to me at this point, all the upper managment does a great job valuing all there employees

    Advice to Management

    I guess if I had to pick something, sometimes I feel that I have lots of bosses and some I do not even know there name, would like to have better relationships with them, but they do a great job in keeping everyone happy!

    still building out brand in the U.S.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder on talent retention. Pay needs to be commensurate with street.
