    Great benefits, and workplace accommodations.

    Workplace conflict, development, and getting to know employees individually seems to be lacking from upper management. Priorities are not in the right place. This particular position has no meaning to this company anymore, making it challenging to feel validated in your role.

    Focus on your team and developing them, and lead by example.

    Help develop your assistant managers as soon as possible. It's a great job in between banker and manager.
