    Good stepping stone for recent grads.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsOverall, it is a great way to gain experience in the banking industry. Bankers hours and federal holidays are also a plus. There are a variety of departments to work in.

    ConsLow pay in comparison to other companies in the area, causing high turnover. In my department, employees are at times treated as second class workers. Forced to work when other BCNB branch employees are off with pay (inclement weather, etc.)

    Advice to Senior ManagementFront line employees seem to do the majority of the work, but receive little recognition for their contributions. Fixing this disconnect between managers and front line workers would increase employee satisfaction.

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

    Good career stepping stone, high expectations with low low pay

    Senior Teller (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsCompany has many good values.
    Good training and professional experience.
    Lower management is usually really great.
    Will schedule around you attending college.

    ConsYou can barely afford the professional clothing you expected to wear on your back if you work here. Especially if you are in any of the introductory jobs that still have very high expectations of your capabilities and ability to hustle. You can easily make the same pay at McDonald's, but that won't look as good on a resume.
    Upper management has no idea how much they expect people to do while barely paying them. Your yearly raise will be a few cents on the dollar even if you exceed expectations.
    Many branches are understaffed, and even though employees will make anonymous suggestions asking for more help, and the upper management lightly acknowledge them and then skim over the problem.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually give significant yearly raises. Don't gloat about the banks record breaking profits and turn around and tell your employees that they'll only be receiving a 2% raise this year or none at all because it's been a hard year for the banks.
    Don't just praise people who sell the most, praise people who put up with the most.

    Can be great if you work hard and STAY EMPLOYED, but be aware of their high employee turnover rate.

    Financial Associate (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsYou will learn a lot quickly.

    ConsThey simply have a very large pool of applicants in a town with a major University, dominating the local market share the Banking Industry. So needless to say, they have a very high employee turnover rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management should think of having more of an oversight over middle/branch managers involving the (too hastily in my opinion) termination of low seniority/entry-level employees. Such a thing can have quite a harmful effect on someone trying to start their career, especially now with the current job market. I believe that performance of job duties should have some significance regarding a "termination" where an alternative like a "probationary period" or "warning" could be more mutually beneficial in a number of ways. Over a half-year period, being tardy 5 minutes on three different occurrences shouldn't lead to a termination, especially when an individual is officially recognized by the company as having outperformed all BCNB employees holding the same job title for the quarter. Basically, just please give it more thought when it comes to firing a person trying to start their career when it is already hard enough to stand out from the crowd. Having to check the electronic dialog box on job applications asking "Have you ever been terminated from prior employment?" probably doesn't help the chances that his/her resume gets printed off or even looked at.

    Working at BCNB call center is great if you are looking for a sedentary position

    Call Center Representative (Current Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsGreat company to work for, good employee recognition, great environment for learning about banking.

    ConsWorking at the customer service call center is a sedentary position, good for a person who wants to sit behind a desk all day at work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood management, good training, this is simply a boring job with limited advancement opportunities. You definitely get to learn all about peoples' personal financial issues and their lack of responsibility when it come to finances.

    Some good aspects, but not all

    Financial Associate (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsProfessional, friendly work environment with above average advancement potential

    ConsHigh employee termination rate, due in part to very strict policy regarding petty rules like tardiness and dress code.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on QUALITY OF WORK. Don't provide branch managers so much power involving termination of their employees wherever they see fit. Alternatively, let employees who are fired instead be able to leave "on their own accord" more often. Having been priorly terminated has an awful impact on a job applicant's record; especially younger individuals which BCNB employs/employed so many of.

    Pleasant and stress free

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsGreat hours, good pay, great vacation and benefits.Really feels more like a family than a business. Everyone is kind helpful.

    ConsCostumers are a little annoying to deal with, but that's at any customer service oriented profession. Nothing really bad to say about BCNB, it is a great place to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do, BCNB is one of the best jobs I have ever had, and it is great to work with such fine management.

    Absolutely terrific company, if pay is not your number one criteria.

    Lending (Former Employee) Columbia, MO

    ProsThe recognition that you receive around the community as a member of this organization is terrific. People truly respect and admire the tradition and longevity of the company. One of the best things about it is I know I would be a customer of this institution even if I wasn't an employee. That shows me their doing something right. The people there are fantastic, downhome and friendly. There is a great level of respect among employees, and it shows that everyone cares for one another.

    ConsThe pay leaves much to be desired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake another look at your pay structure.
