Too many cooks in the kitchen
Miscellaneous (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – March 13, 2019
Typical day consists of making at least 25 calls per day to current and prospective clients to gain market share, with little or no prospecting tools other than an excel spreadsheet somebody created. Completing endless call logs and tracking forms to micromanage every task you've completed throughout the day. Management is the worst part of this overall experience. Ameris Bank is constantly acquiring and merging with other banking institutions, which causes a constant state of panic, and conflicting/competing priorities. This also causes a sense of insecurity because you aren't sure if you are next to be eliminated or not, this all results in a toxic environment. There is clearly an excess layer of middle management at this bank, which causes a lot of confusion by the time the message, priority or process gets rolled down to the branches. Everything is a fire drill, all the time....and it gets exhausting. Beware: no bank-paid maternity/paternity leave as found with other banks. Unless you opt for optional disability coverage, your time taken is unpaid.
Stressfull, toxic enviornment. Confusing management messages
