Pros

Stable Job, If you get in, you'll stay. Its got a cozy atomosphere, with decent componsation for hard work. If you're good at multitasking and initiative, this is your dream job.

Cons

Its a small bank in a tough market, Consolidation is a big element of problems. Be prepared to volunteer some Overtime or saturdays during hard times. Though its not negative to not do Overtime, its likely you wont move ahead.

    Pros

    Management tries to match your interests and abilities when assigning work. There is rarely confusion about what is expected. There is lengthy documentation for everything.

    Cons

    Hinting at promotions is a frequent tactic for soothing and mollifying restless employees, but these promotions do not materialize.

    Pros

    long term dedicated employees, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    lack of communication, fairness and equity issues, no clear roadmap of the future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, value employee growth with opportunties for upper management. don't forget the long term employees that have been with the company thru thick and thin and helped the ford group aquire the bank, they shouldn't be part of the purchase discount pool, but a values asset. remove the dead weight that sits in management.
