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

Suggestions for improvement

  • 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.

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.

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.

Suggestions for improvement

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

What I like about the company

That they were bought out by another institution

What I dislike about the company

Only upper management make any decisions. You are constantly threatened with the loss of your job if enough business is not generated. Think Wells Fargo.

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.

Career Development

refuse training or even cross training

Overall compensation for your work

pay raises are 2 to 3 % range for everyone no matter who worked hard or not

Office / Work Environment

they are looking to replace lots of systems and out source most of it and get rid of employees.

Company Image

looks good on outside but rotting on the inside as in employees of front office compared to back office.

Job Security

none - most back office employees are looking as there is conversations of more out sourcing every where.

Handicapped Accessibility

ramp and doors etc are good

Workplace Safety

fire test etc all the time.

Suggestions for improvement

  • VP's need to listen to CIO plan and not go off on their own. Causes lots of stress in back office. all the employees dont believe management now that the lay offs have occurred. they said they were going to cross train and re-locate employees before laying off. they have shut down complete departments with no notice. after you are laid off you get help with finding a job outside first bank

What I dislike about the company

they are down sizing staff in back office.
