    I worked at Boone County National Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great Culture Everyone is really nice and easy to talk to Competitive environment Great facilities Flat Corporate Structure

    Cons

    Not quite market Pay Incentives don't really incentivize Tons of Teller Turnover No room for advancement into upper levels of Bank

    Advice to Management

    Increase base pay for tellers, for younger tellers it is fine but for many older tellers it seemed as though it wouldn't help support their lives.

    I have been working at Boone County National Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it is nice to work here if you are in college. gain share bonuses in january are great! AWESOME healthcare benefits and sick time and vacation. you will never find it better at another job!

    Cons

    they do not pay as well as other banks. they start you off at 9.50/hr, raises are 0.50 cents or lower, they pay new hires more than their seasoned employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take the word over your tellers than your Branch Managers who are lazy, cliquish, childish, molestors.

    Pros

    Culture and values are great, and there is room for advancement.

    Cons

    Pay is decent, Saturday work is never fun, and you can get fired easily....very high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let Branch Managers have 100% say-so in hiring/firing.

    Pros

    The nice thing about working for this company is the job security...that's about it. Oh and they have pension after 5 years of devoting your life to them too.

    Cons

    Leadership is AWFUL. The management that they hire is incompetent. I can't say that all of the upper management is but branch managers/assistant managers don't know what they are doing. They rely on everyone around them to take care of things. The pay is also horrible. Be ready to make out bound calls even though it does not state in your job description that you will be doing anything like that. I hope you like being a sleazy sales person because that's how they make you feel PLUS the money isn't even worth it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more. Make sure who you're hiring is experienced. Not just in banking, but in management in general.


  7. Good career stepping stone, high expectations with low low pay

    Pros

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

    Cons

    You 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 Management

    Actually 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.

    I have been working at Boone County National Bank full-time

    Pros

    Overall, 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.

    Cons

    Low 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 Management

    Front 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.

    I have been working at Boone County National Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Working 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 Management

    Good 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.

    I worked at Boone County National Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Professional, friendly work environment with above average advancement potential

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Focus 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Costumers 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 Management

    Keep 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.
