    Worked as an intern under great management. I updated and edited credit reports for management in loan review weekly.

    Corporate Banking Intern (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsGreat company culture. Perks of working in banking are the numerous holidays that you can get off of work easily.

    ConsWork load may seem slightly overwhelming compared to compensation. Sometimes approaching upper management my be intimidating.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Personal Banker

    Personal Banker (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsThe hours and work life balance.

    ConsSales tactics and numbers to meet. Pay scale varied to much from branch to branch. I started at 38k a good friend of mine started at 44k with the same position, and similar back ground in the field. Continued to tell me that I could not move up in the company because I had no direct management experience. Would not allow me to attempt or train me. Hired from without the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEquality in pay across the board, revamp sales tactics. I asked specificly when I got hired if they hired within and when it came time to it they hired all new ASM from other financial institution.

    Little room for growth

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsMost people are friendly and respect each other. The company tried not to hire new employees so there is little chance that they will lay off a person if they are no longer needed. They will move an employee somewhere whenever possible. There is plenty of training for retail employees. Management is willing to listen and consider employee feedback. There is a new employee review system that will take effect pretty soon.

    ConsIf you are one of the many employees that was not a banker/finance major, you have little room for personal growth or advancement. There is little trust between management and employees at the corporate and back office level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeleive in your employees more.

    A learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA personable Texas corporation that cares about its employees. Not a lot of room for growth though. Caring management though.

    ConsVery, very small raises, regardless of how long you've been with the company. Extremely poor health benefits with high deductibles.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReward employees for their dedication and length of service by giving them raises, and don't hire new employees on at higher salaries.

    Does Not Pay Competitively

    Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsLooks great from the outside in.

    ConsDoes not pay market salary. Everyone who enters at the same time are pushed along at the same pace. Your advancement is a secret. they do not let you know what you will be able to make. For a company the does not like uncertainty from their customers they do a really bad job of letting people know what their potential is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay employees market salraies so they can reduce turnover.

    Personal Banker

    Personal Banker (Current Employee)

    ProsA solid company which generally seems to have integrity for the most part. Has local values that the customers can identify with.

    ConsThe goals can be unrealistic and there isn't much communication from the top to the bottom. Horrible benefits. Other than that, there isn't a whole lot of cons.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the employees more and find other ways to cut costs. There is plenty of fat to be trimmed elsewhere other than employee bonuses or other compensation.
