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.

  • The individual branches could include gyms.

What I like about the company

The co-workers behind friends. The customers and providing then services to meet their needs. I've made many friends who were customers. The compensation and ability to grow with a great local company who cares about the community and employees.

What I dislike about the company

The company has a hard time firing people who aren't succeeding which can make the job harder on everyone else

  • Updating technology would be a great start! I think are plan to add wealth management will be a great asset.

What I like about the company

First bank cares not only about the employees but also the community we serve. First bank is consistently donating items or money for community purposes.

What I dislike about the company

I think there are some benefits that could be added. A health and wellness program and health challenges.

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.

  • Remember customer service, and that a bank's role is to help the customer with their financial decisions. Not take advantage of them.

Support from management

managers dont know anything, they have to go to their bosses for direction. VP's are making decisions on employees they have no connection with.

Teamwork

no time for team work. over worked and under paid. no time to cross train team members. on call all the time

Internal Communication

CIO says one thing and VP's do another thing with employees. causes lots of stress and people are looking to leave.

no training

Suggestions for improvement

  • HR. decisions should be reviewed when life changing decisions are made against good employees. Get involved and don't let HR rule decisions that are made on one persons impression or determination.

What I like about the company

Was close to commute to work

What I dislike about the company

They allow the HR department to bully employees and that makes for an unbearable environment to work in.

Support from management

My supervisors were always great; however, upper management is the issue here.

Gender Equality

This company should not consider themselves and Equal Opportunity Employer.

Career Development

Once you work in the corporate office, there is really no advancement.

Overall compensation for your work

Benefits are okay. Pay is absolutely terrible. Raises are literally like 5 to 10 cents per year. The manager will lie about giving bonuses (say there are none), but then you find out from co-workers that they have received a bonus. The company is SO unfair with compensation. There are no incentives either.

  • Change the leadership, significantly improve communications, and review compensation of all employees for more consistent and equitable pay for all staff.

What I like about the company

Quite honestly, I can't think of anything - aside from many of the employees are truly good people; it's just that the executive management doesn't sincerely take care of the employees - the people who are actually the "face" of the Bank to the public.
