    I have been working at Susquehanna Bancshares full-time

    Pros

    They offered a generous PTO package as well as many paid holidays.

    Cons

    A lot of sales pressure, major micromanaging issues

    Advice to Management

    Do not focus on sales, focus on excellent customer service and sales will come. Stop allowing toxic leaders to advance and stay in control.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    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.
