Fair treatment, but no budget for employee appreciation.

Current Employee - Administrative Assistant in Santa Barbara, CA (US)

Pros

Management tries to match your interests and abilities when assigning work. There is rarely confusion about what is expected. There is lengthy documentation for everything.

Cons

Hinting at promotions is a frequent tactic for soothing and mollifying restless employees, but these promotions do not materialize.

    Pros

    long term dedicated employees, friendly co-workers

    Cons

    lack of communication, fairness and equity issues, no clear roadmap of the future

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate, value employee growth with opportunties for upper management. don't forget the long term employees that have been with the company thru thick and thin and helped the ford group aquire the bank, they shouldn't be part of the purchase discount pool, but a values asset. remove the dead weight that sits in management.

    Pros

    Great location to work, pretty much the only big local company in town. Get some good banking discounts if you make PCBC your bank.

    Cons

    If you're not SVP's you're paid very poorly. The only people that stay at the bank are those that can't leave SB or won't be able to find a job elsewhere, anyone that's able to leave will eventually leave. HR does NOT like to promote from within. If you are promoted from within to a different position, they won't pay you the same as people they hire from the outside. Manager are embarrassed of salaries HR offers. Benefits are no good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Now that Ford is in charge I hope to see things changing. Many managers were only hired b/c they were friends of upper management and I hope that they are weeded out. Employees are unhappy, if you don't change things you will lose all your good people.
