    I have been working at Sterling Bancorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dress Code and paycheck. Some of the people are hard workers who are invested in what they do, and this effort is noticed by one’s peers.

    Cons

    The strength of a company remains, to date, with the people and strength in leadership from the top. If people are happy, clients will be happy. What has happened over time is the fact that Sr Mngmt has devalued employees to a degree that is not only alarming internally, but to the clients and shareholders. The “growth” is not sustainable over the long haul with their current mentality and business model. Employees are numbers, and are eliminated frequently. The skilled and talented are taken advantage of.

    Advice to Management

    Even if I could speak to Management, they would not listen. If you are looking for a company with a positive corporate culture and good morale, I’m sorry..SNB is not for you.
