They Just Plain Stink

Their branches, products, service, and their management just plain STINK. Derick Cephas (CEO) is the biggest ignoramus to ever run that dis-organization. And for good reason...the man is a lawyer, not a banker. He runs the bank as if he knew what he were doing. His poor decisions have cost the bank dearly in terms of profits, employee morale, customer relations, Union relations, etc. The bank is going downhill and fast. Do yourself a favor and skip that dump. If you're currently a customer, switch to another bank before you are a victim of the bank's poor performance. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!
