Company Culture

Like a lot of companies they want you to feel like your valued but the culture is to ignore your opinions and not keep you informed.

Support from management

They hired all the rejects that Wells Fargo threw out when the merged with Wachovia. Some of the most arrogant and unprofessional managers I've ever had to work with. The Lending Group was just as bad if not worse.

Career Development

No training unless it is absolutely needed and in my job I'm the red-headed stepchild. I'm a systems administrator and have never been to a class relating to the systems and software that I support.

Overall compensation for your work

Raises are horrendous.

Work-Life Balance

I worked 60 to 70 hours a week for a month and a half with one day off. Afterwards in my review I was told I was put in for a promotion that I might or might not get but probably would. I told them to shove it and the raise with it. I no longer work hard for them. My health and private life now take precedence over them.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get rid of the good ole boy mentality and start listening to your employees...maybe you wouldn't have had the disaster you had recently with your mainframe crashing.

What I like about the company

There are a lot of regular employees who will go out of their way to help you but they're becoming harder to find.

What I dislike about the company

They lied about vacation time. You're forced to go back to two weeks. They lied about receiving stock options...got them once and then they took then away.

Company Culture

Freedom to work independently

They like you to think that you're empowered but you're really not

Gender Equality

Southern company....you know how those good ole boys are

Career Development

Absolutely no training in my specialty

Suggestions for improvement

  • Need much better communications - when big projects occur no one understands what is taking place and why. They just need to improve everything and get new executive and senior leadership. A bunch of phonies.

What I dislike about the company

Not made to feel comfortable that you will still have a job because of their extremely poor communication. Constantly demanding that we cut expenses yet they send more money down the drain. Extreme lack of training on the IT side. Killer hours. Lack of promotion opportunities. Poor managers. Unprofessional.

Suggestions for improvement

  • One improvement I would like to see is no touching. Personally I just want to see women being treated with respect.

What I like about the company

My company is great. Everyone makes you feel welcomed. It’s like we’re all one big happy family. If someone is behind you can bet that someone else will help them out. We have flexible schedules and understand all family and or personal emergencies. Never make mistakes on your pay and even pays you for off days.

What I dislike about the company

Some things I sadly disapprove of is the way they treat women. Even though they help us out and don’t treat us differently far as work related, They do look at us as a piece of steak. Always rubbing on us and what can we do we need the job.
