  7. "Decent employer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Rabobank America

    Pros

    Pretty flexible schedule, most branches are closed at 5 and no weekends, reasonable sales goals

    Cons

    Raises are minimal unless you can move up the chain and then the raises are just decent, undeserving promotions made to inexperienced employees (but that happens everywhere), structuring will change soon as the bank is merging with Mechanics Banks

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be more flexible with employees’ schedules, give more thought to promotions and the effect it will have on coworkers, just because someone is willing to work full time doesn’t necessarily mean they deserve a promotion

    I have been working at Rabobank America full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The management takes care of people. It’s like working for a small company that makes money and doesn’t have layoffs every three months.

    Cons

    Kind of low tech. Need to “get with the times”.

    Advice to Management

    Technology needs to be updated. Phones on desks need to be gone. No desktop computers. But they are getting there, slowly.
