Commercial Customer Service Representative

What’s the best way to have a lack of compensation and incentive conversation in your department? I went above and beyond for years doing extra work, organizations etc and nothing has been reflected in pay. I thought my 5 year was going to finally show something but it did not. I’ve inquired about pay but it’s gotten nowhere.

    Getting better but there is a lot of work to do.

    Jul 18, 2022 - Programmer Analyst 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you land a really good manager, sky's the limit on your growth, W/L balance. The new CEO is much more approachable, innovative and grounded. The 'good 'ol boy' culture is finally starting to fade. Work-life balance is getting better is some departments, but not in general. We have taken baby steps into diversity & inclusion.

    Cons

    The long term leadership based in Columbus is stale and stifles growth. There is more focus on holding employees accountable than holding leaders accountable. So there's both good and bad leaders w/i the company. If you land a bad manager, it's better to simply leave. D&I committee is a joke, known racists are apart of it. Also, the diversity in the internship and accelerated banker program is a joke. You'll see your 1-3 token POC, look for yourself on LinkedIn. Salaries can be really good or really bad.

    I truly enjoys my job

    Oct 13, 2022 - Senior Teller 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The benefits are great! A lot of fun activities online for different holidays and company events. Not very busy so it's not a stressful environment (for tellers)

    Cons

    Bonuses are small and only come quarterly. Pending on which branch you work at managers arent good. It seems like in the last few years all the good employees have left or been promoted to higher positions which has bad managers in charge now. Most don't know what they are doing, love to take credit for work they have nothing to do with or have no clue how to talk to people.

    Overall a good place to work

    Jul 14, 2022 - Relationship Specialist in Orlando, FL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The pay is okay, the PTO is great, opportunity for advancement if you care more than the average worker is fantastic, you have the ability to speak to some levels of upper management and be listened to. Every single person I've interacted with here is very nice.

    Cons

    The sales based commissions as a banker are honestly pretty horrible, it's my biggest disappointment with this company. Most of our consumer products are not very competitive so it's hard to sell them.
