Pros: good pay, customers were great, challenging work
Cons: greedy and selfish upper management, no room for growth without degree
I worked for this company for a year as a loan assistant. I was hired to work for one loan officer and assisted 3 executive lenders. Two of the executives were out of the office constantly playing golf. One could say that this was a form of generating business, but this was all the time.
I worked in an office an hour from my home and was promised upon acceptance of the position that if a position closer to my home opened up that I would be allowed to transfer as long as I worked in my current location for 6 months. 8 months later THREE separate positions opened and I asked about all three to no avail. I was pregnant at the time and wanted to be closer to my child once born. My immediate supervisor said, "I just don't want to lose you." I appreciated that she liked my work, however being selfish in a management position is never a good quality. I wanted to be able to grow, but was told in a round about way that I needed a degree to be a manager. Suffice to say, all of my banking experience meant nothing if I didn't have a piece of paper and I ended up training a young man fresh out of college who had NO prior banking experience on how to read financial statements and loan generalities. He was hired in directly as a Vice President. WITH NO KNOWLEDGE OF BANKING AT ALL.
Needless to say, I was pursued by another company and I took it with 5 weeks left of my pregnancy and decided to give a two week notice, however I had to be induced. When I found out I had to be induced, I called TNB to let them know I wanted to go ahead and give my resignation. HR told me that a two week notice was required to be worked out and that I would have to work them out following my maternity leave (even though it was an unpaid leave). I ended up leaving without it.
If you enjoy doing all the work for greedy upper management, go ahead and take the job.
