BRANCH MANAGER (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PA – January 16, 2014
Cons: uneducated boring people
Horrible company. I was recruited to be a branch manager. Went through endless, inadequate training and was placed in a branch to train with a branch manager who was eventually fired for ethical reasons. That should have told me something. During my two years there, our region saw 3 regional managers. The last one actually commuted from Texas to pittsburgh. – more... How effective could she be? This bank is run by uneducated people who are only in their upper management positions because they kiss &$@. High turnover , unrealistic sales goals, unethical employees and boring work atmosphere. Never ever work or do business with this bank!!!! – less
Senior Teller (Current Employee), Waltham, MA – January 14, 2014
A typical day at work is mostly just making deposits, withdrawals, loan payments, cash advances, credit card payments ect. The management is great, always trying to make improvements so the bank can be a great place to do business. My co-workers are great. They are like a second family. The hardest part of my job is trying to move up in the company. – more... The most enjoyable part about my job is getting to meet new people everyday. – less
Branch Manager (Former Employee), Natick, MA – January 13, 2014
I started my career at Citizens Bank, it gave me the opportunity to grow within the banking world. The hours are great if you are a student or single. Work/life balance suffers at times because of staffing issues.
high turnaround, lack of communication, and unorganized

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee), Flint, MI – December 30, 2013
Pros: respect and appreciation
Cons: over coming the balancing at the end of the hard night.
Citizens Bank was a growing place for me, I learned to be organized and keep things together so at the end of the day hopefully you balanced. Receiving several accomplishments there, by be coming a head teller and taking on responsiblity of the tellers in you office. And also taking top sales for our whole Bank. Yes there was always someone there showing – more... you respect what you did and who you where. Working under pressure when you had at least 60 customers in line all day on the 1st and 3rd of month. Yes it was hard, all my staff worked together as a team always helping out. – less
Assistant Branch Manager II (Current Employee), Cromwell, CT – December 30, 2013
Pros: conventional banking hours
Cons: low pay, difficult to achieve goal set, unclear direction
When I started at Citizens seven years ago there was more team building. The company seemed to be forward thinking and had good programs for the employees. There were community events that we sponsored and more moral supporting events. Everything has cut back. Commission payout grids have been changed four times in the last three years. We continue – more... to have to deliver higher levels service with less people and less compensation. The front line has been left to suffer and expected to do more with less. It is difficult to want to work harder for a company that makes it harder to achieve their goals on a daily bases and does not give the resources to complete it. – less
