    I have been working at Old Second National Bank full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Executive leadership, with the help of their CPA firm, has mastered the art of accounting irregularities. CEO has dedication to business as evidenced by the "tornado day" when he ordered first floor tellers to remain at their station rather than seeking shelter in the basement during a tornado warning.

    Optrimistic executives hosted celebratory breakfast immediately on news that OCC had released their restrictive order.

    Bank has no loan pricing model in place and the risk-ratings are applied "rock/paper/scissors" fashion so there's lots of flexibility to make loans, both good and bad.

    The bank has an excellent geogrphic franchise but this is more than offset by the ineptness of management

    The people are generally pleasant and easy going - why wouldn't they be, they're not reallly held accountable by management any more than management holds themselves accountable, which they don't. Think Mayberry Financial.

    Cons

    Corporate objective is to "not go out of business" so executive leadership can continue cashing paychecks while avoiding work & responsibility at this Zombie institution

    The largely minority workforce casts an awkward shadow on the white male leadership environment.

    If the outside director appointed in December 2012 had any idea what goes on here he would pass out.

    The loan committee members "laughed" at the interest rate charged to a long-time customer, thinking that the customer was "too stupid" to shop around.

    The Chief Credit Officer commutes from Effingham and has no lasting commitment to either the local community or the institution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift the largely minority workforce to part-time to save more money and avoid substantive change

    Sell the bank to an institution that knows what they're doing - But management won't let this happen because current management is "not employable" in the current market and would bring "no value" to a competent buyer. Moreover, there is no dynamic in the capital structure to force a sale so this institution will likely be a "zombie in perpetuity" unless they dilute capital with credit losses which is a potential scenario.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
