I learned a lot while working here and enjoyed my time working here. I would have really like to have stayed with CBT, but the position I was hired for ultimately dissolved.

Slow, cheap and incredibly technologically inefficient.
Relationship Banker (Current Employee) –  Los Angeles, CAMarch 7, 2018
Meeting targets is encouraged but it is not as cutt-throat as other places. The systems are slow and dated and the processes in place are still driven by paper and slow. Many employees, both at the branch level and especially in back-office, take very initiative. Everyone is very scared to take any sort of ownership and instead takes every possible precaution for fear of retribution. It is without question a culture of people worried. Why? For the simple reason that everything runs at a snails pace and there is little incentive to grow and therefore they pay you a pittance and don't really care, or rather, don't really enforce if your production is up to par or not.
Pros
Very lax sales environment
Cons
Processes, support and tech really stink

Everyday is different in my workplace. Some days you get to talk to people hows their weekend. You get to know them personally. Some days are busy you don't have time to engaged with them. The main good thing with this job is customer service you get to help people with their needs.
Pros
Office hours, meeting new people
Cons
short breaks

This office is small and very friendly. We work well together and are flexible with people's personal situations. We pretty much know all our clients and I enjoy that. I enjoy knowing and having a friendly relationship with clients.

Seems nice at first but in the end the company is not ran well and their systems are very antiquated
Teller (Former Employee) –  Los Angeles, CANovember 25, 2017
It started out as a good place to work but as time went by my Direct manager got to be just terrible and mean (apparently HR is well aware of this since she's had six employees transfer out or leave the company all together because of her in the last 2 years). The fact that they don't take care of their employees and you don't have the tools to do your job makes it just a big disappointment.
Pros
Decent pay
Cons
Poor Management and HR, Terrible benefits

The day goes by pretty fast, never a dull moment. There's a lot of deadlines, a lot of last minute running around. It's a fun environment, but very fast pace.
