Suggestions for improvement

  • The on-site daycare is a great perk for those who work in that office. If we could expand that and make it available to all the branches, that would be great!

What I like about the company

I started at the bottom of the ladder, was provided many opportunities for training and career growth and have worked my way to the position I hold now. They are very family focused and provide excellent work-life balance. They are outstanding in the community and I'm proud to say I work here.

What I dislike about the company

They have followed suit in the past year in regard to raising wages, but can continue to evaluate the competitiveness of their pay scales.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Due to limiting space issues and our growing company, implementing a policy for working remotely would be a great way to solve the space issue as well as compete with other companies who we have lost employees to due to the work remote option and better pay.

What I like about the company

The culture is wonderful and is one of the most prided aspects of working at First Bank & Trust. Our presence in the community is great and I feel it is a well respected company to work for. Internal advancement is available and I have personally worked my way from entry level to a more seasoned position, however, community politics seem to get in the way of advancing further and there is seems to be a lot of hand picking for certain higher positions.

What I dislike about the company

I wish there was more internal training for advancement.
