      Not a great place to start out or if you want career opportunities/growth

      Pros

      Pay and benefits I think job security is relatively good so it may work well for people who are fine with staying in one role or on the same path for many years. It may be good for external candidates who are already established in their career.

      Cons

      Not much mobility within the company. If you are someone just starting out, you want to be mindful of where you want to go because once you start in a role, it takes a lot of luck to transition to other areas. People can be unforgiving about others' lack of relevant experience. I was once told that my experience in this one area would be valuable when transitioning to a different team, but when it came to applying for that new role, I was flat out rejected for not having the required years of job specific experience, which most people on the team don't have themselves. Even someone that came into the role with no prior relevant knowledge or experience told me that I had nothing to offer. The company also appears to make certain jobs available only to external candidates instead of growing current employees into those positions.

      CEO Approval

      Pros

      Decent pay for the amount of work placed on an entry level position

      Cons

      - Management expects front line workers to take on tasks on lighten the workload of Lenders, Business Bankers, and Investors without any extra support for the MBS position - Not flexible with hours anymore - Coaching is just another way for management to tell you to push more products without listening to concerns - Being told there is room for improvement but being held in the MBS position with little to no communication on openings in other departments - No longer customer relation based but more product sales based
