Bank that compares poorly to competitors.

Too much back biting and gossip made it an uncomfortable place to work
Pros
life long learning encouraged, free banking, discounted mortgages, good benefits, short term disability
Cons
low salaries especially for tellers, newbies paid more than long term staff, lousy pension scheme

No growth
Associate - Product Controller (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJune 11, 2012
There is no sense of growth in the NY office, at least in the finance department. It seems as is there are lay-offs every year, and your job is not very secure. There really is no advancement for young workers, and there is no proper training for new employees.
Pros
relaxed work environment
Cons
low compensation, no growth

customer service agent (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLJune 20, 2012
I learned how to process loans, and learned how to really relate to other people in every day situations in dealing with money and finances. Some had many and many had few. My co-workers were amazing, we all helped teach and learned from one another. I can't really say there was anything hard about the positions outside of just learning the systems. Everyday for me was enjoyable
Pros

Cons
