Pros: steady schedule, job security
Cons: compensation is low, no added bonuses, upper management is horrible, no room for growth, work/life balance is not to high, and the list goes on.
Upper management gives an excessive amount of work to branch personnel for no added incentive or compensation. You can have a steady schedule working for GSCB, a division of NYCB, but they constantly move individuals around from location to location because of "business needs." The morale of the employees are extremely low, upper management make you – more... feel like your working an assembly line when you come to work. There is no leeway to be honest and tell them what's working or not. You have to lie to them because they will pounce on you if you say anything negative. Your position will not necessarily be your position once you have the job. A Branch Manger will sometimes be open on the teller window. Just like the BM must also do outbound HR recruiting which is HR job. The Assistant in other words is the BM and runs the branch. The BOC who in a sense is a head teller, is more like an Assistant Manager because of the work load that is placed on them. This is not an ideal place to work. Last, there is no advancement here, the highest you will make it is to Branch Manager and that's it. All off upper management are content in their positions and the back office jobs are primarily located in New York. – less
