    Pros

    Employer matching of up to 7% for 401 (k) is a nice benefit. Most local employees are friendly.

    Cons

    Constant changes in policies and procedures cause confusion for front-line employees. Christmas bonuses are a joke. Quit preaching about supporting the stock holders. We all know who owns the stocks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The computer system is out dated and needs to be updated. Test should be run before programs are updated. It is difficult to help customers when the computers are slow or down.

    Pros

    The work is easy and you can get to know your customers.

    Cons

    The pay is dreadful. Management is the DEFINITION of tyrannical and there are no procedures in place to file a complaint. You will be degraded, taken advantage of, and just generally treated like dirt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lobby managers are not above reproach. There should be a way for employees to express these issues with out retaliation.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are nice.

    Cons

    They are behind on technology, a lot of paper processing. They are VERY conservative on spending. There isn't room for advancement nor transferring to another position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With all the acquisitions, please invest in technology to make transitions easier for customers as well as employees. Regional managers area representative of your company. It doesn't look well when they are rude to new employees. If an employee has turned in their 2 weeks notice, the regional managers won't even acknowledge the employee when they visit the branch. It reassures my decision that this is not the company I want to work for if this is how leaders of the company treat employees.

    Mergers more like a take over

    Pros

    Hours or competitive. Once had home town feel but now losing that touch.

    Cons

    Mergers are more like a take over. First Victoria Bank was chewed up and spit out. Very disorganized merger. Not sure is this is the peoples bank anymore. Home town feel has been lost. Welcome to Chase.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on perfecting what you do. You need to focus on hiring the right people doing the right things and communicate. It's not always about management making a profit. The front line staff is your voice. Start treating your people better.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility and can only help you in a future position within a bank(if that is what you want to do with the rest of your life)

    Cons

    I worked for Prosperity Bank for two years right out of college. I was very appreciative because they gave me a chance at being a teller even though I had not actually worked at a bank before. They started me at a decent starting pay considering I was new to this, but promised that with experience, I would get raises and be considered for different positions in the company. (Basically, the sky is the limit if you work hard for us.) Well, after about 6 months, I got my first raise. It was nothing too awesome, but enough to where it made a difference. I was getting better at the job, getting compliments all the time and working my tail off. I continued to work hard for this company and for the next year and a half, did not get another raise.
    The problem with this company is that they look at the branch you are working at as a whole. If the branch you are with is successful, you can get these raises and they will give you the better equipment to work with, etc etc. However, in the 2nd year of working with Prosperity, I was working at a different branch that was not near as successful at the first branch I was with. I went from having amazing equipment, the opportunity for advancement, a better experience overall to a bank that was tiny, had poor management, had little respect from upper management and just was so much more work. I learned a lot working at the bank, but I was under-appreciated and underwhelmed with the way the company as a whole operated. If you do decide to work at Prosperity Bank, be sure and be employed at one of the nicer locations because that will tell you that they are more valued by upper management than
    the other branches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value that talent you are given. I have seen so much turn-over while working at Prosperity Bank, it is not even funny.
