What a joke of a bank. Anyone in management should be expelled from the industry for this performance. I shut my accounts down out of here before it's shut down. my manager went to disney 3 years in a row. why is my bank spending my money on trips? smith doesn't even drive himself?! cancel the stock options. shut down ny and boston. fix connecticut or your customers will fix you by dumping this outfit!
