    I worked at Bank of the Ozarks

    Pros

    I am currently a college student, and the pay was higher than at other locations, I enjoyed being able to work in an office setting, and the other tellers/front-line staff are very nice.

    Cons

    Supervisors and upper management have problems relating to employees, praise is rarely given for a job well done, and mistakes are nearly unacceptable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think managers and other people in places of authority should definitely be reevaluated. My manager was very condescending to the tellers and front-line staff and it was extremely hard to tolerate.

    Pros

    Friendly work place and good management. Seems like a company that a person could really move forward in if they wanted.

    Cons

    I had trouble getting off a a few times, but I think that was just my branch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    -My branch manager was very polite and open with me
    -Company was about to improve employee benefits ($1-for-$1 401K matching)
    -Good learning experience for young professionals
    -Potential to grow into hiring earning positions

    Cons

    -Released after mentor program
    -A lot of pressure on tellers for low pay
    -Mentor trainer seemed offended when I asked questions about the company I was hired to work for
    -

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prepare employees who are going into their first full-time job what to expect in the mentor training program. My manager seemed enthusiastic about receiving me, but had to let me go after being inaccurately informed I was unprofessional and performed poorly with my mentor.

    I have been working at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company stocks has performed well over the last several. All officers received stocks which helped to make up for the below market salaries that the company pays.

    Cons

    Micro-management from the very top down. Company demands absolute loyalty from employees with zero given in return. Below market wages. CEO with an ego greater than that of Donald Trump. Anyone who even hinted that George Gleason may be wrong about something will soon find themselves unemployed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dial down the ego and listen to front line employees.

    Pros

    The region I worked for in my opinion had great condition-workers and good management. Pay for my region I believe was slightly above average and training is good at this institute.

    Cons

    I feel like this company does like to promote from within but due to in my division having smaller branches the only positions that ever became available were entry jobs it was harder to move up. Incentives are not the best they could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you do... I feel like you are doing a good job.

    Pros

    The only pro to working here is keeping up with your expenses a lot more!

    Cons

    Bad management, gossip spreading, rumor starting, snobby backstabbing co-workers! And management is a part of it all! Very "cookie cutter" place of employment! The tellers all talk trash about everyone, makes fun of customers and are out for themselves 110%... management is a part of it all by disclosing confidential information. Very unprofessional and shady. Work environment is much like a high school "group" you're either in....or out. And if you're out of the childish game playing group, they will make every day a living hell for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management is to quit and get GOOD PROFESSIONAL management to hire all new staff that actually cares about people and each other.
