Weak leadership turns engagement into disengagement.
Banking Advisor (Current Employee) – Barrie, ON – May 2, 2016
I took the Banking Advisor role with all the enthusiasm in the world and meeting clients is always fun, but the environment has soured that enthusiasm. The advertisement is advice, but to be clear you don’t get measured to provide advice. You get measured to push product. Wrap extremely weak leadership around it and your day turns into a race to get it over with. I love sales, but the environment needs to be positive, supportive and achievable without having to cheat or trying to trick customers under the guise of providing advice.
It’s astonishing to have someone tell that you need to suck and blow at the same time while having a straight face. I have worked for awesome leaders in the past, but it is definitely a culture of blame at the retail level.
At a higher level, it is a good organization.
Ultra high micro management and you will need a very thick skin.
