No longer a great place to work
Systems Administrator (Former Employee) – Champaign, IL – May 1, 2018
I worked for Busey for 13 years. The first years were wonderful. The employee came first and it was like a big family atmosphere. Then came the merger with another big bank in town. That’s when it all turned negative and went downhill. The new upper management were horrible. My department was taken over by someone with no experience who was an awful manager. Even though all my reviews were excellent, I was never promoted. Later I found out my coworker was telling falsehoods to our supervisor. The writing was on the wall, so I quit. No use in fighting since my supervisor had her blinders on. Leaving was the best decision I made.
Micromanaged, promotions not based on ability, Office politics
