    I have been working at Univest full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are "Some" great people working there, family oriented company

    Cons

    Not very diverse when it comes to race relations, antiquated systems, comp plan is horrible, management is clueless, and a lot of people are there that should be... A lot of inappropriate behavior from staff that have tenure

    Advice to Management

    Diversify, update systems, be more competitive with the comp plan (at least industry standard)have management that's knowledgeable, stop the favorably treatment, treat all staff the same, I could go on but I think the point is made

    I worked at Univest full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the co-workers are nice. You get holidays off. Health insurance is good. Other than that nothing really else is good.

    Cons

    Regional managers are ridiculous. Specially with the role plays for the sales. Unrealistic sales goals. They are always up your butt about telling customers about products. They care more about sales than the people. The pay sucks too.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe pay your good employees a little more and they would stay...

    I have been working at Univest full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    When I started at Univest 4 years ago, it was a really great company with upbeat employees, happy offices and nice perks. The perks are even better now with increased tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    The downside to Univest is the morale and decreased attitudes of employees. Over the past 4 years, MANY changes have taken place and it's my opinion that the more tenured employees are "cranky" and frustrated. So much so that when I make an internal call to an employee, she's doesn't even say "Hi" to me after I greet her and ask her how she is. Additionally, when asking fellow coworkers for assistance, it's like pulling teeth to get help!! As a young professional, it's very upsetting and disheartening.

    Advice to Management

    Either remove tenured employees with poor attitudes who drag the overall morale down, or develop a way that employees are more helpful and at the very least semi-glad to answer a phone and assist.

    Pros

    The best part of working at Univest is the customers that come into the branch and the employees that you work with. It helps to have a manager who empowers you to be the best employee you can be.

    Cons

    They do not offer competitive salary or raises. It is not uncommon to receive a quarter an hour raise per year.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate accordingly to keep good employees around, or else you will lose them to other companies who compensate well.
