American Bankers Association Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

The American Bankers Association "ABA" is a Washington, D.C.-based trade association for the U.S. banking industry. Founded in 1875, ABA represents banks of all sizes and charters, including community banks, regional and money center banks, savings associations, mutual savings banks, and trust companies, with the average member bank having approximately $250 million in assets. Like many large trade associations, ABA's principal activities include lobbying, professional development for member institutions, maintenance of best practices and industry standards for example, routing transit numbers, consumer education, and distribution of products and services. ABA is considered the largest financial trade group in the United States.

A employee wrote for Indeed on November 2019 about how is working for ABA: I wouldn't wish this place on my worst enemy... terrible mission, horrible management, benefits are in decline and were never great to start with. Have met one decent person in two years there but otherwise not much fun!

"I worked at American Bankers Association Cons: Low salary pay. Average workforce age is ~ 60 years old. Very old school management type that promotes based on the number of years one has been on the job and not performance. Poor organizational culture which is very senior heavy."

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"I have been working at American Bankers Association full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Depending on group and position, there is little career growth once you figure out your job responsibilities. Senior management has tried to appease this by offering tuition payment and free classes through ABA's continuing education. This is a nice start, but it's much more of a cultural issue with management maintaining the status quo. This, of course, varies by groups. If you're an established professional with 5+ years of good experience, ABA makes sense because of name recognition and opportunity. If you're starting out your career, it's an okay place but expect to remain somewhat stagnant or look for off-ramps after a couple years if you're serious about being a professional. There are always exceptions but this seems to be a wide opinion. While the work-life balance is nice, it's a bit shocking when the entire office clears out the second it hits 5."

"Absolutely useless UPDATE: Trustpilot: Full email history and all proof are available if needed. 2020-07-14: They are absolutely useless. Only sending automatic answers, they do not read questions and do not reply with sense. Don't waste your time with them. MyChargeBack: See your ticket yourself, how useless you are. Email history is added below as proof, partial only due to space limitations: MyChargeBack Support 8:08 (8 órával ezelőtt) címzett: én HI Barát, The process to recover funds can take a long time, 6-month plus, many hours talking with the banks, sometimes lawyers, and can add up to well over $1000 USD For that matter due to the difference between the fees that would have to be paid and the number of funds to be recovered, it may not be worthwhile for you to contract with a recovery service or file a lawsuit. We suggest you try to resolve the issue with the merchant directly or possibly seek out a law firm that may already have initiated a class-action lawsuit against your merchant since that would not require any initial funds on your part. You could also go to your bank and ask them what they can do for your case. I do wish you the best of luck.

"Markus. Your services seem to shine with their absence. I was in a vulnerable situation and turned to you for good help, I thought. All you have to do is send pre-written emails through a lawyer in Bulgaria who is as corrupt as the whole country. You sent me a request that I request a refund from Nordea Sweden. You should know that this should be done no later than 6 months after the event. It happened almost 1 year after it happened. I have not even sent that request to the bank it is totally pointless. I thought you were a pro at handling such things but I was wrong. You have not made a single message to me that you have given a positive message. Every time I contact you to find out what you are doing, you send the same document via the lawyer in Bulgaria which does not lead to anything. I want to know what answers you have received from the relevant authorities you Have you Been in contact with. 1. Report to the police what happens to you what answers have you received? 2. Notification to the Bank of Latvia What answers have you received? 3. You should contact the Legal Department of each country. What answers did you get? I have been waiting for an answer for more than 2 weeks. I paid almost 3k Euro for the service which is useless. WARNING FOR THIS COMPANY Be careful with this company. They promise a lot that they can not keep."

Uli Mentrup says

"I was lured with great promises that they could get the lost money back. Even when asked whether this works in Germany, the answer was yes. That was a lie. Nothing, absolutely nothing was reimbursed by the bank. I won't be the only one who hasn't got money back. It doesn't seem to work in Germany!"
