FT Teller (Former Employee) – Fitchburg, WI 53713 – August 6, 2018
Typically I was responsible for 4 lanes of a busy drive drive thru. In addition to that was responsible for X amount of Sales per month. Daily balancing was critical. They culture in my branch was heavily Spanish speaking and needed interpreters often. Some of the hardest things were the lack of assistance during rushes and the computer system crashing at a critical time that threw things into chaos.
Senior Personal Trust Assistant (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – August 4, 2018
A lot of turnover and shortage of employees because they all leave because of management. Very stressful environment. This has been going on for years and nothing seems to be done about it from upper management.
CSR/Teller (Former Employee) – Spooner, WI – July 24, 2018
Typical day was 6.25 hrs. Learned alot about regulations and laws governing banks. Management very easy to work with. Some days very slow and some days hectic. Easy going atmosphere. Hardest part was being sure I did transactions correctly. I really enjoyed customer service.
LOSS MITIGATION COORDINATOR (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – July 13, 2018
When I started at the bank while attending college, I never expected to make a career out of it but I have thoroughly enjoyed the last seven years at the bank. I had amazing colleagues, outstanding hours (off Saturdays and Sundays-role specific) and my management team was very involved.
Vary Political and Driven by personal gain and power struggles.
Compliance Officer (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – June 30, 2018
Initially I enjoyed my job and was doing productive work and received excellent reviews. Over the years I was forced to accept reassignments to other groups in the Compliance area which was constantly in flux with changes in leadership. I had several managers changes within the first 5 years of my employment. My managers always knew less about the Regulatory Laws then I did. At first they were thankful for me working with them. Management changed frequently and as this happened the replacement knew less then former about Banking Regulations. Subsequently I was fired by a person who through politics was promoted to be my supervisor. I believe this was to consolidate her power over the compliance area.
Again, it was the Banks loss.
Great group of employess to work with at the same level.
Sr. Sales Support Associate (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – June 7, 2018
I really enjoyed my time at Associated Bank and deeply regret to this day leaving. It was such a relaxed employee friendly environment. I felt like part of a family as oppose to part of a team. There was always someone willing to help you and consistent team engagement events. The only downfall were the medical benefits. They were extremely expensive and not very good. That is my only complaint.
Retail Banker (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – May 30, 2018
Good company to work for however there is no work/Love balance. Great pension plan upper management is not in touch with the retail banking side. You will really have to fight for the salary you deserve because it is very inconsistent.
Banker II (Current Employee) – Richmond, IL – May 25, 2018

Teller Supervisor (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – April 22, 2018
It is not what you know but who you know when it comes to job advancement. Poorly managed by people who lack leadership skills and fundamental knowledge of how to lead a team and be unbiased in the work environment. Work itself is enjoyable and rewarding. Good benefit program. Rate of pay poor for job requirements.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – April 7, 2018
I had an overall bad time working for Associated Bank. I worked physical security and it is shocking to me that this place in specific could stand out as bad in a field where you already don't expect much. For the time I worked there, just under a YEAR, I received no real training related to my job. Managers expected other on-site guards to handle this, while simultaneously disallowing you from contacting them most of the time for help. All of the security procedures that I needed to know were kept on an online system that required a login, which despite MANY attempts to get help from management, I NEVER received this login. This means that I had no clue what to do and if the other guard was not right there next to me I could not ask. Every time I brought this up, I was met with a "working on it." That is COMPLETELY ridiculous. The security managers had NO business being managers, especially the one directly over my location. The literal only time they contacted me was to reprimand me. I asked for help multiple times which I didn't receive. Not only that, but the higher up security manager, about two levels above mine, told my manager to have weekly training calls with me after I complained and asked for help. Guess what literally NEVER happened? It seemed as if the managers there simply didn't communicate things properly with each other, i.e. assigning days for mail logging and such. I would almost be happy to have been terminated if I didn't feel that it was such a messed up, wrong situation to begin with. I enjoyed working with some of the people I was around,more... but it truly ends there.less
Better pay than contracted security gets, some benefits
Horrible management, scared of talking to manager, travel, treatment of employees, lack of training
Colleague Care Payroll Rep (Former Employee) – Green Bay, WI – March 30, 2018

Branch Manager (Current Employee) – Green Bay, WI – March 22, 2018
The banking industry is a very difficult industry to work for. However, I enjoy my position as a manager and there are great leaders within the company. The CEO is transparent and accessible. Sometimes the sales culture is tough and can be draining.
