Pros: work/life balance, bankers hours are hard to beat.
Cons: lack of training and support in areas that should be a given.
Not what I expected. You are overwhelmed with various training and requirements that have to be completed in a short amount of time. When you are a branch manager, you are not given teller training, which is very unfortunate since you are responsible for making decisions and approvals. How can you make a good decision without the basic training to back it up. It's sink or swim, and that's what catches you off guard. The worst part, your held accountable for a bad decision when you've never been trained how to be a teller, the core of the bank.
