    I have been working at Sterling Bancorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None other than generous PTO

    Cons

    Everything! They overwork you and the work seems to be passed off from one person to the other, there is no ownership for the customer experience. I work many days past 5pm and off the clock (HR take note of this, oh wait, they're too busy doing nothing). Management is out of tune with day to day operational issues and there is no consistency what so ever.

    Advice to Management

    Start listening to your staff! Start hiring more customer support staff and make employees feel appreciated.

    Pros

    Opportunity! The bank offers engaged and committed colleagues opportunities for growth on a regular basis. The bank is also invested in and vommitted to ensuring women achieve their full potential within the organization.

    Cons

    Not for the faint of heart. It is a fast paced, ever changing environment. As a result, there is great opportunity for those that take advantage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on engaging colleagues and driving great results!

    Pros

    It;s a job. Co-workers are nice.

    Cons

    The bank is trying to grow too big too fast. Management need to take a step back to look at what is going on. There need to be better practices in place so as to not loose customers to competitors. They believe in that they can use less people to work on many, so many staff members are overworked and underpaid.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to communicate better with employees
