    Pros

    The people you work with here at PCB are some of the nicest people I've ever worked with. It is a genuine family environment.

    Cons

    There is a disconnect between senior management and the daily operations of the bank. They don't seem to have a real direction in which to take the company right now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let's get back to basics. Downsizing jobs is only one way to reduce costs. We have been spending money foolishly while at the same time cutting back on employees.

    Pros

    Friendly, humane people. The company is well respected in the community. They do everything "by the book" as far as treating you well, benefits, etc.

    Cons

    As a bank, security is understandably tight in the IT department. However, it seems to be overly so at the expense of letting me do my job in a timely manner. Also, some of the technology and the ways of doing things seem dated. Finally, there is the elephant in the room of how much longer we will even exist.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on keeping us informed about how things are going. Try to keep us open, and keep doing little things such as lunches and open forums to keep the troops informed.
