    I have been working at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They've remodeled and the new space is awesome. Benefits are really good! They offer tuition reimbursement, gym reimbursements, quarterly bonus, Hotel discounts, they even pay for your kids good grades. There is a gym on the first floor with brand new equipment. A LOT of people are promoted within the company. There are a lot of opportunities to move around and up. The stand-up desks are pretty sweet. There's a Micro Market in the break room that makes it really convenient when you don't have time to pack a lunch. Lots of people enjoy playing ping pong in the break room as well. Executives really push for people to challenge the norm, ask questions, and be innovative. It's a fun place to work, especially when you take the time to get involved in all the fun activities that are always going on.

    Cons

    There are some people who have worked there a really long time and they don't realize how good they have it. I've worked at more than eight companies in the last 10 years and this place is by far the best.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to continue bringing in new people who exemplify TAB values and to continue leadership training.

    I worked at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many great, incredibly dedicated employees, especially at the VP level down. Unique opportunities for the Ogden Market.

    Cons

    Tough CYA culture. Continued failure at aligning an executive team that can lead the bank. No focus, continuously chasing every new lending vertical that might be a success instead of just focusing on core competencies and being great at what they know how to do. Toxic environment, Executive level management and Bank Owners are very disconnected. Incredibly high turnover and firings create a culture that scares employees and hampers the ability of anyone to make decisions. It could be so great, but I have lost confidence that ownership can ever hire a trustworthy executive team.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone who will lead. Stick to your core products and allow the bank to excel before chasing the next shiny object. Approach new product verticals with market research and a thought out plan.

    I worked at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have some stellar employees and I think an eye to the future and a healthier culture.

    Cons

    They have people in leadership positions who lack leadership skills and professionalism. If you speak up or try to create more efficient or productive system you will be met with harsh resistance and labeled. You may even find yourself fired.

    Advice to Management

    I think they need to take the advice that has been written. There is serious need for improved training throughout the organization and stop firing the best employees for speaking up and promoting the class clowns who refuse to actually work. Stop allowing the un professional behavior from the HR VP down to the New Accounts group.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance. Good employees.

    Cons

    A lot of talk to improve culture and make positive changes but little movement being made. The updated office space is nice but they need to make a better investment into their employees.

    Pros

    Great people & awesome benefits. Most employees stick around for a good amount of time (10-15 years). Lots of fun team building activities.

    Cons

    The company prefers to hire students or fresh college graduates who have very little (if any) work experience. They are not competitive with salary and the room to advance within the company is very limited, as people tend to stick within their current position for quite a while.

    Advice to Management

    Better salaries entice better employees


  7. "Decent smaller sized company."

    Focus on keeping quality resources

    TAB is a fun place to work. We also can provide creative solutions for our customers.

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Transportation Alliance Bank full-time

    Pros

    The company may be able to offer some training opportunities and exposure to the financial services industry for an entry level employee.

    Cons

    A series of frauds and major losses has everyone in "CYA" mode. The new CEO is really just a politician, does not know the business, and the company has lost a lot of good talent due to his arrogance. In this culture, paper pushing and staying below the radar is encouraged. Actually try to get something done and you will meet with resistance and frustration.

    Advice to Management

    Ownership needs to make changes, starting at the top.

    Pros

    Quarterly bonuses, a lot of room to move up, most people start in customer service but only stay for a year or less before moving into other departments

    Cons

    You have to wait for positions to become available which could take months

    Advice to Management

    Customer service does a lot more than what they are paid for
