Chase was a good company to work for with decent benefits and great vacation allotment. However, they are not very employee friendly in other ways, such as hours, scheduling, and, most importantly, pay. What the branch employees are paid, from the tellers up through management, is a joke. Most branch employees are tightly budgeting (unless you are at a larger branch with high traffic), and incentives are cut every year. I left for a better offer after many years of loyalty, finally tired of hoping they'd show they truly valued their employees by paying them what they were actually worth instead of just giving us an empty employee appreciation week and a verbal thank you. Also, they say they are all about developing and advancing employees from within; not so much, unless you know the right people and have a manager who truly helps you and pushes for you to get ahead. Unfortunately, those aren't very numerous in the branches.
I was happy to be part of this company as it challenged me to grow and help my group grow. I was responsible for the development of the branch and the training provided each processor and loan originator. I used my background in underwriting to help my staff expand their individual levels of experience and become stronger, more reliable and productive employees.
With such a huge corporation, there are too many variables for me to even imagine. We have all see what has been going on in the news lately with the CEO losing $3 billion! The only sure thing I can say is they shouldn't do that.
