Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at First Banks

ProsSenior Management consistently communicates with all employees, sharing the bank's challenges, accomplishments, etc. The various department managers are very approachable, and share the same work ethic- do whats best for the customers and First Bank

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
