I have been an employee of this bank for 8 years and have held a number of positions within the bank. If you are looking for a good place to start and/or continue your career in banking, this is a great place. As the industry has changed, so have of course the priorities of this company.
I have learned a great deal about finance, sales, and relating to co-workers. Historically, this company does a decent job at hiring people who fit in to the culture.
That being said, recently I have seen upper management begin to make decisions that are a little less consistent with what has made this bank so great. Hiring folks who are guaranteed to bring in a great book of business, but less concern about how they may treat customers. Many people can fake being good at customer service, but the fakers do end up showing their true colors after the fact.
Again, the above example is by all means still the exception to the rule.
Otherwise, there are some great gems in management from top to the bottom. They still run the bank as close to the community banking vibe it was founded on as they can, given the current regulatory and competitive environment.
If you are someone who is skilled in customer service, adept at sales, and can work well in a team environment, then this may very well be the place for you.
I should also mention that this company does a great job of promoting from within.
Great culture and opportunity for advancement
As the industry changes, things will undoubtedly change, and perhaps for the worse if you don't enjoy sales
