    Very few, few, few........ it is hard to fill a description of using adjective to make a positive statement when there are none

    Many. No opportunities to grow, micromanagement, no good benefits

    Advice to Management

    Change all leadership


  4. "Not a good place to work!"

    Pros

    There are some long tenured people that work for Wilmington Trust at all levels that genuinely care about the work.

    Cons

    Very frustrating place to work with lots of disgruntled employees who don’t care much about clients or about doing a good job. Technology is so behind the times it’s a joke, and it makes work slower/harder. I found it to be generally a pretty toxic work environment, and to make matters worse the benefits and salary are below average.


  5. "Worst ever. Especially toxic for females in upper level positions."

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Sterling fiduciary reputation with a few really great people but generally cannot deliver on the investment side. Really antiquated systems and poor senior management with no support for the front line.

    Cons

    Complete organization failure. Patients running the asylum. No support for the fro lines and no clear chain of command. Complete inability to support efforts of front line. No team delivery. Everyone out for themselves. Particularly toxic for females at officer level and above.

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Scrap them all.

    Limited training programs, outdated operating software.

    I worked at Wilmington Trust full-time

    Pros

    Willing to work with you regrading your schedule. Vacation and benefits are really good! For the most part, co-workers are really nice.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't good at all and Management wasn't really helpful.
    Senior Management didn't communicate with you unless you did something wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your co-workers more often. Communicate with your manager team.
    Listen to new ideas within and don't play favorites.

    I worked at Wilmington Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I cannot think of any pros at all. One of the biggest mistakes of my life.

    Cons

    Never recognized or acknowledged for work.
    The "old boys club" is alive and well
    Lifers coast on their seniority
    Bullies, cliques

    Advice to Management

    Why bothere. They think they'really better than everyone else.

    Pros

    Positive work life balance. Team structure consisted of Client Associate reporting to Client Associate Manager and supporting 2 to 3 Trust Account Officers.

    Cons

    Began post graduate career as a Client Associate. Did not receive initial training on responsibilities. Team members were reluctant to share work to provide insight and training on procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to Employee needs and requests. Provide additional training opportunities.

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

    Pros

    if you cannot find other job it is better to have anything, including this.

    Cons

    Mmm. Where do I start...we'll. everything. I have been working here for about two years. 1) IT, technology never works for many things. 2) salary and benefits, below the average of companies of the same size, 3) management, old management style with all poor policies and micromanagement style.
