    Pros

    Benefits, variety of teas in the break room, etc.

    Cons

    Good old boy style of management. They are all friends, they never get fired regardless of how bad their performance is.
    Stay away from AML, especially in BREA. Clueless people. In 2 years they had a turnover of 20 people. And still people are leaving or want to leave. There is a reason they are alway job postings for AML/BSA employees. Only buttkissers get promoted, all managers and leads are friends. STAY AWAY FROM THIS JOKE OF A PLACE!!!

    Advice to Management

    Nothing is going to change, management keeps doing whatever they want, so what's the point of giving advice to them?

    Pros

    Management was pretty flexible. Good work atmosphere and the bank is truly trying to expand itself to be more competitive on a national level.

    Cons

    There appears to be no upward mobility. It will take a few years at one position before you can seen growth onward. I personally saw a lot of internal transfer between departments.

    Advice to Management

    More proactive feedback given to the employees about performance and current standing.

    Pros

    Stability, its not publicly traded bank so you have better job security and better ways to get new clients that expect strong financial stability

    Cons

    Health benefits are a joke. Its cheaper to go through the health insurance directly you could get a similar or less quote. Vision coverage just covers glasses every other year. So it may be great for the older people but not the younger ones since we are paying the high premiums for the older workers :(

    Advice to Management

    "As is" to branch management I hear from customers that customer service needs to be improved and tellers need to be more customer friendly
