    Pros

    Management makes it a point for you to feel important, all the way from the tellers to the branch managers and associates really notice that.

    Cons

    Sales goals keep going up drastically. Tremendous sales pressure and expensive cutting with no realistic ways to achieve them. Pay is probably one of the lowest in the competition.

    Advice to Management

    Don't allow yourselves to become just another big bank and lose the human quality that this bank has in pursuit of profit

    Pros

    great benefits, lots of branches

    Cons

    as far as branch managers are concern they do not empower the managers to be able to do their job effectively but they will give them 100% accountability to achieve their goals. the salary ranch for Personal bankers are below average and they do not negotiate vacation time for positions below Branch Manager grade.

    Advice to Management

    review pay scale for talent and negotiate vacation time for BTL's if you want to be able to recruit good talent.

    Pros

    The training process is well documented. You are provided with all of the tools needed to be successful.

    Cons

    Employees are not pleasant to work with and the pay isn't great.

    Advice to Management

    Give new employees a chance. The head teller and some of the veteran tellers are in no way welcoming to new employees and that's a problem

    Pros

    Standard working hours, opportunity to impact the financial lives of others, to provide crucial resources and guidances to customers who allow you to.

    Cons

    Perhaps not so much just regions, but the nature of working in a Bank branch is pretty brutal at times. Sometimes it feels like you're playing "russian-roulette" with the door - you never know what customer is going to walk in and they could drop a major 'bomb' on you with no warning. Customers often want to "give the dirty ole' bank a piece of their mind!" and you get to be the lucky warm body in the seat that they yell at. During my tenure, the bank was very fee-income focused which made the day to day job of interacting with customers very difficult because we could rarely provide relief to frustrated customers who received unexpected fees.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better empathetic awareness of the experiences of branch officers and provide support inside and outside the branch.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment with no micro managing. Paid holidays & good insurance.

    Cons

    Downsizing has caused employees to be overworked & underpaid. New incentive plan has made goal unreachable. Lower salaries & incentives than other banks. Hard to get a promotion to higher salary jobs even when you have a degree & experience.

    Advice to Management

    Stronger management is needed to back up their employees regarding department rules & processes. It will cause less stress on the employee & increase our morale. Have better budgets for Evergreen week to show appreciation to your employees.
