First Niagara Bank

Bank Teller (Former Employee)
Philadelphia, PA (US)

I worked at First Niagara Financial

Prosgood entry-level position to obtain basic experience

ConsHard to take advantage of training offered due to the immediate supervisor's lack of support
Lack of support in setting/achieving career goals
Lack of communication/respect towards anyone lower on the career ladder
Lack of response to employee concerns from both the immediate supervisors and the HR

Advice to Senior Managementmake a greater effort to listen to front-line employes and address their concerns
assist in professional development and goal-achievement, do not simply issuing directives
be more aware of the day-to-day functioning of the offices

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
