great people to work with but the company seems to not know what it really wants.
Pros: all federal holidays off
Cons: heavy push in sales in an economy that wants none.
i have met a lot of great people while working at First Niagara. the day mostly consist of processing teller transactions and referring products to those who were in need. i felt management didn't quite understand how things were on the branch level. i felt there was a heavy push in sales and generating traffic but a lack of focus on customer service. some of the practices that upper management wanted us to use contradicted the company's culture. i felt the sales was the hardest part of the job, but i got to meet a lot of diverse and incredible people, whether employees or customers, which was the most enjoyable part of the job. i learned a lot about regulations of the industry, management skills, and a lot about finances in general, stuff they should be teaching in schools.
