Marketing Associate (Former Employee) –  Olney, MDAugust 7, 2017
Sandy Spring Bank used a typical model for employee hierarchy and was generally pleasant to work for.

While not receptive to unconventional strategies or concepts, Sandy Spring Bank maintained a perfectly acceptable bearing and was appealing to its target market.
Pros
A relatively balanced work environment with short bursts of energetic activity.
Cons
Lacking collaborative, inclusive efforts and rigid in hiring practices.

not a big company
Full time summer floater teller (Former Employee) –  Arlington, VASeptember 21, 2016
The company is very small. They push sales and hassle you to open accounts. There ant a lot of customers that come all the time so branch manager will have you standing outside hassling innocent people walking the side walks to open accounts.

A very bad working environment
Customer Care (Former Employee) –  Maryland, MDOctober 6, 2015
A very disorganized bank. Management is so bad. Instead of letting you know what you have done wrong, they talk behind you and when they see you, they look at you and make you feel worthless. They don't even know what the are doing. Especially in their back offices
Good management lets you know what needs to be corrected but they are always talking about people behind their back. The team lead is talking about the supervisor, and the supervisor's boss. The worst place to work. If you need to schedule a PTO, it has to be 30days in advance?? Really?
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Bad management

Enjoyable and worthwhile place to work
Organizational Profitability Manager (Former Employee) –  Olney, MDMay 21, 2015
I learned a great deal about banking from my co-workers at Sandy Spring Bank. The upper management is excellent, and interacts well with employees. The hardest part of the job was the ebb and flow of the workload - incredibly busy at the beginning of the month, and not so busy other times. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with co-workers.
Pros
An hour lunch break, traditional work hours - 8 to 5, very intelligent people to learn from, lived very close to work, they were very involved in the communities
Cons
The dress code was changed recently to Business dress, I worked in the basement with no windows

Managment problems
Teller (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, MDFebruary 4, 2015
Good overall company, day to day work is what you would expect from a teller. However specific to my location there was very high turnover rate.Tellers at the time started with 5 and be the end of a year only 1 of the original 5 was left. Branch manager also changed. Personal banker had changed and teller supervisor was on the way out the door as well.

Good balance but no pay
Teller Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Edgewater, MDJanuary 20, 2015
This employer values its people verbally but does not compensate its employees monetarily. Their president is down to earth but kinda preachy.
