Administrative Assistant III (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 3, 2017
Sterling National Bank merged with Provence bank in 2015 and the company net worth may have grown in the past 2 years. However, the turn over in employees is due to the company not looking out for their employees.
Loan Servicing Specialist (Former Employee) – Montebello, NY – July 1, 2017
A typical day of work included processing loans into the computer systems. I learned how to coordinate tasks with my coworkers in a team building atmosphere. My managers provided great support with my projects through clear instructions and guidance through each step of the process. The workplace culture at Sterling was a dedicated team of hard working individuals with the common goal of achieving daily tasks in a timely fashion. The hardest part of the job was finding solutions to challenging mult-step tasks. At the same time, the hardest part of my job was also the most enjoyable, in that the ability to overcome obstacles gave me a sense of daily progression.
Friendly atmosphere, clean and organized workspace
VP/Credit Group Team Leader, Specialty Finance (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 28, 2017
In my short time at Sterling I got to learn from the best and managed some of the best Senior Analysts I have worked with. Sterling has a great collaborative work culture that makes working fun and productive.
Expectations were unmanageable. The workload was so hectic that you didn't even feel like you had time to go use the restroom let alone take time to go eat your lunch. Too high stress and too many closed door meetings. I see now why they have horrible turn over rates.
Senior Client Associate (Current Employee) – New York State – March 7, 2017
A sad place to work. No morale, constant fear of layoffs and a non-existent employee culture. Favoritism is the norm and forget about management assisting in any customer matters. Human Resources and the benefits department display an attitude that shows they do not want to be bothered. Branches and commercial banking teams do not work together, the person in charge of the branches is a nightmare. I would not recommend this employer to my worst enemy.

could be a way better environment. When Sterling took over Hudson Valley Bank everything changed. They charged customers for everything and the customers would get very upset and yell at us but we were just dong our jobs.
