Liked my job, salary was rough
7th floor (Former Employee) – Bridgeport, CT – November 16, 2017
There's a ton of different angles this company can be reviewed from; from the branches to the countless departments in Bridgeport Center. My department was fun, laid back, and had a family like atmosphere. My manager was flexible, reasonable, and treated everyone like adults. That's just my department though. There was three or four different departments just on my side of the floor, so it definitely varies by department. Salary was well below industry standard and the raises and bonuses are a joke. That's a knock on the bank itself though, not the specific department I worked in. Benefits are pretty good and there are plenty of PTO hours available. One thing that's aggravating is the CEO sends out an earnings email every quarter talking about how much more money the bank made compared to the previous quarter and year over year, yet the only people that see a cut of that are the top floor. I learned a ton about the industry my department concentrated on and will absolutely use everything I learned in my next position. Good place to start, but don't count on being there for more than 2-5 years if you want to live somewhat comfortably.
