    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Pros

      Challenging work; never boring. Beginning of innovation.

      Cons

      Too much work; more work than people and a high turn over of expertise. Long term employees are too entrenched in the now and not looking forward.

      Pros

      Synovus is a bank focused on making relationships. You have access to more people at this bank than I have seen at any other bank. There are one on ones and many people to facilitate your growth and development. Leadership puts time into you if you work hard.

      Cons

      Old redundant technology, pointless and multiple systems. Slightly less than average pay.

      It's a paycheck

      Sep 1, 2021 - Anonymous Employee

      Pros

      A paycheck and (expensive) healthcare.

      Cons

      - No focus. Department heads and managers don't know how to prioritize initiatives or staff appropriately. - Not willing to invest in the technology needed for basic backoffice efficiency. - Zero opportunity for promotion. - Absolutely no investment in employee education. - Poor communication from the top down and across the rank and file. This has been lifted up in every annual employee survey, but has yet to be fixed. - Titles mean everything and there are cliques and a definite pecking order. If you're not a director, your opinion doesn't matter. - Diversity isn't important, though they talk a good game. Some departments have no minorities in management. - Early in the pandemic, there was a lot of lip service about caring about employees and questionnaires about work preferences and needs. But they're just like every other corporation - overbearing and irrational. With high transmission rates in Georgia (where headquarters is based), they're now forcing employees to come back into the office three days a week - no staggering schedule - while taking away their personal work spaces (unless you're full-time). The managers make the decision about remote work. Even if you don't work in the same office as your manager, you must go to an office.
