We currently live over in Charlotte and would love to move over to Greenville. I know the economy is tough everywhere, but are there any specific companies in Greenville that are expanding? Are there any you'd be concerned about working for? I am in the banking world and was a victim of layoff at Wachovia. Just wondering if the city of Greenville if fairing.
Thanks!

You're in luck. Carolina First which is one of the if not the largest bank in South Carolina is building a new headquarters here that will employ 600 when completed. More information on the project can be found here: Cooper Carry

Wow! Any idea when it will be done? And more importantly, does anyone work there that can give me details?

Here is a link (http://www.sccommerce.com/docdirectory/ResearchFolder/South%20Carolina's%20Fastest%20Growing%2025%20Comp anies%202007.pdf - broken link) to the 2007 top 25 fastest growing companies in South Carolina. As you may notice, Greenville fares very well throughout the list.

Other banks in the area are also expanding and adding jobs like the Palmetto Bank and Greenville First: Harper Corporation, full service general contracting firm, Greenville, South Carolina - Completed Projects - Institutional (http://www.harpercorp.com/palmettobank.php - broken link) I imagine the Carolina First headquarters will be complete in late 2009/early 2010. It looks like the first employees should start moving in early next year. Check here: Carolina First Bank 2008 and here: Carolina First Bank 2008 for job and contact information. Here are pics I took two days ago of the Palmetto Bank's and Carolina First's new headquarters getting built:

Carolina First is definitely the largest bank in SC, and I believe top 30 or 40 nationally.

The plan is to hire "600 additional", these are in addition to the current jobs at the headquarters on Main, that will move to the new facility, and also, some jobs being brought in from Florida.

Default Banking & 25 top companies!

Thanks G-man430 & Skyliner great information on Banking. I also enjoyed those pics. I am also looking to move to Greenville, possible if we sell our house, early 2009. I have been wondering how the banks are doing in your area with all the economy and sub prime fiasco. I work for a sub prime finance company but want to very much go back to banking.

This gives me a better outlook of what is ahead.............looks promising!

I think this thread is so helpful and thank everyone for their feedback all the time

Thanks everyone! I had not thought of the smaller banks listed. I only seem to think of Carolina First! But it seems they always have the same jobs listed on their career website! Interesting. Thanks again!!!
