Support from management

Many leaders lacking leadership skills. No autonomy.

Internal Communication

Major decisions regarding new rules affecting customers and employees were implement Before communicating it to either group.

Gender Equality

Many women in high ranking positions, however, there are definite disparities in salaries. It's more about the "Title".

Career Development

They encouraged development and trained and groomed individuals. However, after accepting your new position you must "prove yourself" for 3 months before realizing a salary increase. The increase usually was not much higher than your previous salary.

Overall compensation for your work

Raises were rare and when given were embarrassing.

Office / Work Environment

Beautiful banking facilities. The owner is a developer.

Work-Life Balance

Weekends and holidays off.

Job Security

None... You must sell sell sell banking products and produce!

Suggestions for improvement

  • It all starts from the top execs. Be great examples. No need to raise voices, embarrass, condescend or belittle. Especially to your top execs! It creates a domino effect. Others see that and are embarrassed for them and in turn, employees do not trust. Bring salaries and compensation up to industry standards at the very least.

What I like about the company

Some very nice employees.

What I dislike about the company

Raises were rare and when given they were embarrassing. I received a .17 cent raise after 2 yrs of no raises and lots of hard work. Appearance standards are high, salaries are low. Individual leadership at the many banking centers really has no autonomy.

Teller

Suggestions for improvement

  • Give more training and let the tellers know that they are not only in charge of the transactions, but meeting the numbers as far as sales in accounts.

What I like about the company

I like the team that I was able to work with.

What I dislike about the company

It was expected of the tellers who have never been trained in marketing or sales to go out during the working hours to promote accounts etc. I felt that we had personal bankers to do that and that it was not the tellers job to go out and make sales. We were also told to use our PERSONAL vehicles to go to businesses. We had a certain quota to meet and if we did not we would be punished or singled out.
