Poor culture in back office, bad attitudes in branches
Service Center employee (Former Employee) –  S Burlington, VTMarch 1, 2015
I'm very disappointed to see how this place treats people. Long time employees are paid well below market, are made to feel like they could lose their job at any time, particularly if they make a tiny, everyones human, mistake or if they don't have a perfect relationship with Sr. Management. There it's all about playing the corporate game. No work life balance or concern for it or the welfare of each employee. All the management changes and shake up have made for a LOT of unhappy people! They are too worried about meeting certain profitability metrics than to be a good company. No room for advancement. Smoke and mirrors is the norm.
Pros
co-workers nice
Cons
pay for long time employees, work-life balance, sr. mgt, culture

Merchants Bank review
Branch Manager (Former Employee) –  bangorMarch 11, 2012
Merchants Bank allows drunks to come to work smelling like old booze. This person works in Loans and is very knowledgable, but cant go through the day without shaking, she has been written up for causing problems in the branches and also for yelling at employees, but upper management sweeps those issues under the rug. Which makes a bad work enviroment for the others.
Cons
upper management, ceo needs to be more aware of whats going on

Human Resource Officer & IRA Officer (Current Employee) –  Jakcson ALFebruary 19, 2013
A very busy place where one can learn anything and everything they want to regarding banking. Great opportunities are here, but one must be willing to push themselves to the very edge to absorb all the learning tools.
