“I’m so proud to say I work here. I have been banking here since I was a kid, and now that I work here I can say I would love to retire here. It is an honor to be apart of such an incredible company. There is no comparison,” explains one employee.


Says another worker: “There is a genuine humanity to ESL. I’ve never worked in a more positive environment or with a more collegial team of professionals. Regardless of level or position in the company, there is a shared commitment to doing what is right, with the executive team leads by example. Each senior manager takes his or her work seriously, but they don’t take themselves too seriously. They understand their own strengths—but speak eagerly and openly about ways they themselves can do better. Each demonstrates a genuine interest in and commitment to making ESL a great place to work. The result: an uncommonly supportive and nurturing environment.”
