This place takes away quality of life and happiness. Everyday you will leave work angry at the world and not know why.

Company Culture

Only focuses on one racial demographic.

Support from management

Personally my boss was great and always looked out for his team. With my boss I always had support on projects and deadlines.

Teamwork

Team work on my team was very good. Other teams push as much of their work as they can on others especially Human Resources who uses all that free time for Youtube.

Freedom to work independently

Yea you do work independently because of the amount of additional work that hits you out of the blue...you have no time to grab coffee or chit chat casually for 5 minutes with co-workers.

Internal Communication

Everyone pretty much communicates well but a lot of upper management communicates as if you are a peasant.

Gender Equality

Attractive women definitely make it further than others

Career Development

Put in 5 years of hard work (still am) and always get denied for pay increase despite improving my skills each year with certifications.

Overall compensation for your work

Don't bother looking for any help.... I had to work weekends that involved me using half tank of gas and paid parking for over 60$+ at multiple lots in one day.... Guess what the response was for compensation "You needed to work so that's your problem"

Office / Work Environment

This is a new space that was designed for the bank... Taking 2 stars off because every single corner of this bank is brand new except the 5 bathrooms. Here is where costs where cut.. the toilets are very disgusting and rusty, the floors are the industrial always wet looking concrete flooring where human waste collects after each persons trip... most of the men drip on the floor which adds to the already nasty bathrooms. Also men and women share these there is no gender specific restroom.

Environmental Friendliness

I have met some amazing individuals here but 85% of the other employees smile to your face and act nice when they need something that benefits them. When you are no longer useful they will still smile but gossip about individuals around the office all day.

Work-Life Balance

None at all, as an employee I was forced to work numerous back to back weekends (still am) while not having time to get personal stuff done (Dentist, vision care, house chores, and quality time with family. Once you work here they will pile you with work and do not care about the time frame. Basically you get assigned other people's work even on top of your own and must complete all even though the time window is unrealistic...yet again they don't care.

Company Image

Looks good on paper

Job Security

The new head of HR started as a temporary employee and rose to the top of HR in a couple of months replacing a woman who has been doing that job for 15 years. This new head of HR has absolutely no idea what she is doing and makes REALLY bad decisions everyday. She is in the process of firing everyone and hiring people who are not qualified. She is incompetent and has very little education and talks with a ghetto accent like she just stepped of the streets of Newark.

Handicapped Accessibility

Don't Bother

Inclusive / Diverse

Many different races here... Not all of the races get as much promotions as some of the other races.

What I like about the company

I like somethings like the convenience of all the food spots and coffee spots in the area.

What I dislike about the company

I dislike the way Upper Management feels like they are on their high horse all the time, I dislike HR's new lady as does the whole company, I absolutely dislike how Upper Management talks to you as if you are swine and will ridicule and mock your work with words that cross the line of harassment ... also this company has no gratitude for all the hard work you do even if it was not your work in the first place.
