Pros: being able to "free think" product and servies which would compete against the big banks
Cons: too many unproductive meetings tying up people
A great deal of daily planning needed to see the day through as inquiries from our customers being business account managers and branch management required skillful use of time to meet those inquiries. Additionally much time was required to attend many planning meetings held by various departments within the head office.
Learned to be a good time manager – more... and people person.
Management was result focused with a need to succeed against the competition.
Co-workers were always supportive to discussing potential changes to processes and to assisting with the development of new products and services.
The hardest part of the job was the time demands to attend the many departmental meetings held at the head office, sometimes unproductive time for a great number of people.
The most enjoyable part of the job were the successes in rolling out market competitive products and services that would serve the members well. – less
