Collection Manager (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – January 6, 2015
Co-workers had little to no management expertise. The company did not do well at complying with state and federal collections laws. I witnessed multiple violations of the FDCPA and FCRA act by this employer. Highly unethical in the way they treat members of the military! No training program and upper management doesn't "walk the walk."
Lo/Acct Rep (Former Employee) – Minneapolis/St. Paul – November 28, 2014
If your a rep, low opportunity to close enough loans to make more than your draw. There really isn't a way to get exceptions approved more than any other company. The process is fine, but if you want to make any money, this is not the position. LO position would work if you have your own book of business, but other than that, no real flow in the banks at all. There are plenty of other options in the market that would offer a better career.
health insurance costs
if you are in sales, pick a bigger bank with more opportunity, or at least more career potential, The company is beyond old school.
Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Marion, IL – October 14, 2013
MidCounty placed their emphasis on the employees, customers, and their shareholders....I that order. Their philosophy was if the employees were taken care of the customers would be and that would make the shareholders happy.
Employees were encouraged to inspire changes that would make the banking experience better for everyone involved.
Advancement was only available if willing to relocate to Minnesota
Financial Service Representative (Former Employee) – Mounds, IL – June 4, 2012
The people you work with are great, but the company as a whole makes it impossible to succed. I was rehired with the employee for a new position and was told I didnt have to go to the new employee orientation which was the meeting that you recevie the handbook and another employee book with the guide lines because the company didnt let me go to the orientation i didnt get the booklets and the released me of my duties because i didnt know the job.
Assistant Banking Center Manager (Former Employee) – Mount Vernon, IL – June 20, 2012
MidCountry is one of the most poorly managed institutions in the industry. Upper management consists, predominately, of persons who were retained from failing institutions and, unfortunately, it shows in every aspect of their business. Employee's moral and satisfaction are extremely low, so much so, that a majority of the workforce is looking for other employment opportunities. I would never reccomend anyone working for this company.
Financial Service Representative (Former Employee) – Carbondale IL – December 11, 2012
I have worked for MidCountry and have never felt more spoiled by a company. Upper Managment keeps their employees well informed on the direction of the company. Other financial institutions would just throw you to the wolves but MidCountry will give you endless training to ensure you know your job and whats expected. They have great benefits and competitive compensation. The employees were a great group of people to work with. If I didn't have to move out of the area I would have been with MidCountry until I retired!
I was initially shocked by the number of people in management who had no actual management education, degree, or experience. Information typically only flowed in one direction, top - down, so if you are looking to make a difference and help improve processes/procedures, look elsewhere. There are a lot of unnecessary processes that have nothing to do with federal regulation or law and simply take time away from customers; this company does not trust its employees and requires auditing of nearly everything. Systems are decades old and continually crashing or creating errors. Almost everyone I worked with would have walked out the door if offered a similar position with another institution.
Lack of education in upper management; communication only flows from top-down
