Difficult Work Environment
Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – July 17, 2018
For several years before and persisting until after I was there, my department had some of the highest turnover in the bank. In addition, my department used questionable practices relating to performance improvement plans and terminations, but due to HR's close working relationship with my department's management there was nowhere to escalate concerns. When high achieving employees posted for positions in other departments, the department manager intercepted to prevent the transfers, resulting in employees leaving the company in order to advance, then sometimes transferring back to EverBank from outside in order to work in the department they were blocked from entering via internal transfer. Morale in my department was low due to a top-down communication culture including manager gossip and an unwillingness to listen to employee concerns.
