    Pros

    The pay is great. You meet awsome customers and co workers. The workplace has a genuine warm feeling. You also work banking hours, so no working late nights, half days on Saturdays, and the bank is closed on Sundays.

    Cons

    Downsides are as a part time employee, vacation benifits are horrible... only 5 days a year no matter how long your employed with the company if you are part time. Also, I bellieve this depends on the supervisor but at my location flexability in scheduling was a NO! so not a great job if you attend school or have a second commitment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexable in scheduling and ecourage employees to be successful.

    I worked at Cullen/Frost Bankers part-time

    Pros

    Nice people, good pay, clean environment

    Cons

    part time requires more hours than you expect, you can never take a day off, you have to work every Saturday

    Advice to Management

    If branch is not having tons of customers, allow employees to be off or go home.

    I have been working at Cullen/Frost Bankers full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company, very stable, most people are very nice.

    Cons

    Some departments have extremely weak management. People stay a long time, and then develop a feeling of entitlement to promotions, regardless of skill. I have seen talented new hires get fired quickly because of office politics that the manager did not nip in the bud.

    Advice to Management

    Assign mentors to new employees, the way Microsoft annd other big companies do. Make it someone from another department. New employees need to have someone other than "rivals" in their own department or HR to talk to.

    I have been working at Cullen/Frost Bankers as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Culture is everything here.

    Cons

    Felt like they were more concerned about selling the culture to the interns rather than making sure we left with good experience. Lots of interns struggled to stay busy all summer. Pay is not competitive, very low actually. Made more money waiting tables in high school. The internship program is more of a feeder into the ARM (Associate Relationship Manager) Program after graduation, rather than an opportunity to learn a lot and come out with experience relevant to your major.

    Advice to Management

    Pay should be industry standard, especially for a company that brags about its financial success.

    Pros

    Very good and solid company. It does care for it customers and provided excellent customer services. Long tradition and established company. Provides global banking services with a community bank feel.

    Very slow to promote. Becoming to focused on sales side of banking. Not always practices what it preaches.

    I have been working at Cullen/Frost Bankers part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great hours and some great people to work with. Customers are awesome. There is always a retail related contest going on to motivate employees.

    Cons

    It is very hard to get promoted to the next level. Even with experience and education. Hard to stay focused in some of the slower locations. The pay could be a little better but banks ususally do not have high wages.

    Advice to Management

    Look for new ways to show employees they are appreciated. Most of us want to be here.

    I was actively working 3 months before being officially trained!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The turnover is low, the locations are conviently located with free parking. The job is fairly easy if you are good with memorizing forms and procedures. The employees are somewhat friendly and your job is mostly routine.

    Cons

    They expect you to be willing to fill in at other locations at short notice, if you don't you will not last long. The benefits suck and you have to wait 1year before you are eligible for health insurance. Getting time off is a pain and alot of the upper management is messy. Also the job does not pay enough for the amount of work expected. Training is the worst of any company I've ever worked for. It is mostly hands on therefore you are only as good as your trainer who is usually the current senior banker and mostly busy. Much of it was learn on your own...I was there 3 months before training started and had to complete training modules in between customers. There was a total of 80hrs to complete and if it was not done you are terminated.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be cheap with training! Training modules is not an effective method of training. There should be training in a actual learning or class environment before performing duties. It is not effective to provide inadequate training, then give low performance scores for representatives that are not properly trained.

    Pros

    Frost bank is an ok company to work for in San Antonio. Co-workers are decent and so is management

    Cons

    Pay is a Con when working for Frost Bank. If they can increase the pay then they would be able to keep talented people.

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay in an effort to keep talented employees. The pay is the only thing that deters some people

    Pros

    The employees have a very low turn over rate. Many employees have been with the bank for many years. . I enjoyed working independently and meeting all the attainable goals.

    Cons

    I was warned during my interview, that I would be working in the downtown main lobby with a senior female "problem employee". It did make it difficult to be positive in a very hostle enviornment.

    Advice to Management

    The investment management team needed to address the problem before hiring me. It seems like they were walking on egg shells. I believe, they were afraid of the "problem employee" leaving and taking the bank's customers.
