    I worked at Susquehanna Bancshares full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best training program I've seen in 10+ years of banking.
    Flexible and adaptable staffing solutions.
    Quality products and services covering all conceivable banking needs, either in-house or with dedicated affiliates.

    Cons

    Payscales were low, promotions were politically motivated, raises were minimal, branch staffing was insufficient at most locations, and overabundant at others based on the branch in question's relationship with regional management.

    Advice to Management

    Shouldn't have sold to BB&T - should have cleaned house of the politically motivated Regional Management and focused on brand and branch building in the greater metropolitan area.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working there. The people were the best part of the job, great sales and ops group. If you keep your head down and do the work, it's great. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Management is a little out of touch with staff... new management began to feel much more corporate, which some might prefer. You need to ask for the salary you want, they will offer as low as they can possibly get from you.

    Advice to Management

    Be direct and be fair. Make sure you recognize the people that work for you and a little friendliness goes a long way.
