    I have been working at Equity Trust Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Company thinks about all stakeholders when making decisions - employees, clients, ownership, regulators, etc., and makes balanced decisions. Everyone I've worked with has been pleasant and hardworking. Company has been great thinking through their Covid-19 response, putting the safety and welfare of employees first while also doing everything they can to meet client needs. The Executive team really stepped up their communications during Covid-19 as well, keeping us updated on the business and their response to the pandemic. During a normal working environment, there is an onsite cafe, exercise facility, free coffee, walking trails, and many other employee friendly perks.

    Cons

    Nothing that stands out at the moment for me.

    Pros

    Lots of wonderful things about this place! Management was wonderful, True leaders. Co-workers were caring and more like family. There is a gym, masseuse, and a cafe with fresh made healthy foods everyday. There is a track around the building and basketball courts to take advantage of in the warmer weather. You were able to listen to headphones while you worked. They had a bunch of catered picnics on the patio in the back of the building, with a DJ. The work was fast and steady and you are in charge of your own workload, so time management skills are important .

    Cons

    The only Con that I can recall were the pay-raises. A couple cents raise, and I don't recall any bonuses. Also,

    Pros

    Massages, gym and cafe.. that’s it

    Cons

    They don’t work with you when it comes to being sick, you have to have sick time if you call off an hour before your shift to avoid an occurrence, why can’t we use our vacation time if we ran out of sick time? People are legit sick and too afraid to call off because they will get a point, how about we don’t give a point to employees that are truly sick who have a doctors note

    I have been working at Equity Trust Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    New leadership values performance and drive, if you're willing to innovate and push new ideas you will have support all around you. People aren't afraid of trying new ideas and approaches to problems. HR is making total benefits a real focus, we've received a new casual dress code, more benefits, a gym, and on-site cafeteria.

    Cons

    Some of the teams haven't broken out of their mold yet, there are solid attempts but there are people or processes holding them back. Just like any financial company there is a solid amount of training and "need to know" items that take time to learn.

    I have been working at Equity Trust Company full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It has a cafe with good food but, it's very expensive. Has gym, and shower; however, doesn't make up the difference for the LOW pay

    Cons

    Extremely low pay for the industry, and the location average salary. Also, Extremely expensive benefits, no choices in benefits, very expensive food from cafe, Job tasks are extremely complex, technical, and require Extreme levels of dexterity and mental acuity. *Job requirements salary is POVERTY wages. * No room for growth. *Demotes employees and lowers salary based on "Competitive Advantage". That's called being a CRAP company. *Paid leave and time off is meager at best. *Training is pretty good but, slow. * Steer clear and don't bother. *Requires 1 year before moving positions. (lame)
