Universal Banker (Former Employee) – WI – October 5, 2017
Wintrust truly is wonderful! They really care about their employees! They give paid leave for mothers! Which is HUGE!!! Great paid time off and a fair amount of sick time!! I feel like if i had the opportunity to do what i do best i would have stayed but unfortunately it was not offered in the area i was located!
Good organization yet i worked for a horrible dept.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – May 25, 2017
Was interviewed for a certain role and responsibilities yet job awkwardly turned opposite from what was discussed in interview as far as wants and needs from the employer side. Opinions and thoughts were welcomed yet there was resistance when given. I will never work for a bank again.
Default Loan Servicing (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – March 7, 2017
There was not much time to have fun because everyone is constantly working on their computers. My employees were very nice and always willing to help me when I was in a difficult situation. Great environment overall.
Commercial Loan Officer (Current Employee) – Mokena, IL – October 14, 2016
Wintrust is a great company to work for, however, much of it is determined on which location you are working at. Some locations, such as downtown, have more resources and senior lenders that help the junior loan officers find deals. Other locations, such as Old Plank Trail, put the burden entirely on the junior loan officers. This leads to an unfair advantage to those placed in more optimal locations and unfair expectations for those who are not.
I enjoyed the exoerience that I was able to acquire from opening a community branch
VP Branch Manager (Former Employee) – Hoffman Estates, IL – January 4, 2016
The branch grew to $32M regardless of opening the facility in a shopping center that was in receivership. 2015 production goals were met by November 2015, branch was second place twice in regards to investment referrals.
The Hoffman South Team is a great group truly understands the meaning of team spirit.
Sr. Underwriter(Team Lead) (Former Employee) – Rosemont, IL – October 18, 2012
This is a great place to work. The company is growing by leaps and bounds. Management is very approachable and listens to any concerns or ideas that are relevant. Overall it is run like you are part of the family.
