    Pros

    A lot of benefits. Health care, tuition assistance, share programs, year end and monthly bonuses. There's an emphasis on client experience and not sales. A lot of mobility, there's a lot of opportunities for advancement. Managers are nice and approachable.

    Cons

    Depending on your role your work hours may be difficult to adjust to. If you are new and low seniority you may work late or on weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great initiatives throughout the organization to make our company client-focused, innovative and relation-oriented bank.

    Cons

    Finance is going through a lot of changes and streamlining work and improving inefficiencies. This is a great was to optimize and save costs but also means consolidating roles and eliminating certain type of jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent in strategic visions and priorities and keep employees engaged / informed how the company is tracking against these goals.
