Pros: good benifits, early hours
Employee management, core solutions, working with iSeries (IBM). I work with solving core problems, backup, updates and releases for core product in banking. I work with updating and releasing OS for – more... IBM iSeries. Daily I work with the employees at the bank. The coworkers are good,
The hardest part of the job is working with the new structure since the bank went public.
The most enjoyable is solution/problem solving.
The management structure has changed, and it is different to deal with. – less
A great place to expand upon previously acquired professional skills.

Each day is different at Independent Bank. While there is variation, I can generally count on certain tasks. Deposits and withdrawals; account inquiries; and online banking inquiries; all exercise my problem solving skills so that I may give the best possible service to all our customers.
Independent Bank has a great name in the community and shows by taking good care of it's employees. This bank has exceptional values that seems to be disappearing in many other institutions in our area. Other banks look for numbers and Independent Bank focuses more on the customer.

Pros: good employees
Cons: poor management
CONS: I would NEVER work here again. Poor management. Employees not treated with respect. Lots of people married to other people within the company. Unprofessional. Managers being best friends with subordinates. – more... No money for training, but managers can go on trips to conferences. No feeling of team work or that management cares about the growth of their employees. Mismanagement of resources.
PROS: A lot of good people work for IB. The people are what are what make working their enjoyable. – less
Mortgage Processor (Former Employee), Bay City, MI – May 28, 2014
When I started it was very busy and had a couple days training and then jumped into the job to learn the job and system. Reviewed new files and after they came out of underwriting worked on clearing conditions – more... with loan officer. Later we also picked up customer contact and worked with them to obtain conditions. Once conditions in file would be submitted back to underwriter for final approval. They we would work with loan officer, customer and title company to schedule closing. File would then be prepped and turned over to a closer.
I learned to process VA and MSHDA loans which I have never done before along with new construction loans.
Individual manager and processing team around the state was wonderful to work with and always helpful and patient in helping with problems or issues.
Hardest part of the job was keeping up with the volume since there always seemed to be a high turn around with staff but enjoyed the challenge.
The best part of the job was helping the loan officer and rest of team in helping make the customer's experience a good. Especially helping a customer in a first time home buying experience. – less
