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.

Company Culture

All talk and no follow through

Support from management

There is very little communication and involvement from upper management. Never received clear communication about goals and what was expected. Management also never engaged with employees for their input on what worked and didn't work.

Teamwork

Igor the most part my branch worked well together but there were many times when others felt less than appreciated or taken advantage of by other colleagues. Tension developed between a few but was never communicated.

Freedom to work independently

Yes

Internal Communication

Again extreme lack of communication and leadership.

Gender Equality

This issue never really surfaced.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Get most of the older workers were ones who had been with the company long term. Don't think they were hired on regular basis

Career Development

Lacked leadership and growth opportunities. If you are happy I. The same position long term with no structure or guidance then this is the company for you.

Office / Work Environment

Physical aspect of the office was fine but system operations were a hit or miss sometimes making it extremely difficult to execute task efficiently.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling system was fine

Work-Life Balance

The company says family comes first but you were left feeling guitlty when you needed to be out because their was nobody to cover in your absence due to staffing and other branches willingness to help.

Job Security

Was never sure but felt that the amount of responsibility I had and the many hats I wore I would think my position was secure

Workplace Safety

Basic information on workplace safety provided annually.

Challenging Work

Most of the time the actual task at hand should not have been difficult but the system and process was EXTREMELY inefficient for majority of everyday responsibilities.

Inclusive / Diverse

They say they do but actions didn't reflect. Felt more like dealing with cliques in high school.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hire the right people for the right positions. Engage with employees and find out what their desired career path is and help develop that.

What I like about the company

The people I worked with directly and how they requested clients be treated.

What I dislike about the company

SEVERE lack of leadership, development and opportunities. Many people were in positions but were not prepared to handle the responsibility the position required.
