Pros

Great Southern offers decent employee benefits. The insurance is expensive to the employee, but is good coverage. Also have good plan for stock purchase.

Cons

There is little to no communication between upper management and employees. Too many people know just steps to complete tasks in their job, but they have no understanding of why they do what they do. The training is terrible. There is no flexibility. Management will tell you there is opportunity to move up or move around the bank, but if you do try to move, they will stop you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to communicate more with employees. Management also needs to provide the opportunity for their employees to better themselves within the company. You're employees are your strongest asset!

    Pros

    Good base pay, great supervisor & coworkers, awesome schedule, looks nice on a resume

    Cons

    Clueless management doesn't understand the cultural differences between states & has flip-flopping rules and procedures (extremely tedious!!)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make corporate up of people NOT JUST FROM MISSOURI. And for goodness sake hire an efficiency expert.., you'd save tons of time, money, and complaints.

    Pros

    The benefits are good. Most of the people are professional yet friendly. The company is growing by making wise business decisions as it acquires other banks. We just acquired a series of banks in Iowa and Illinois. GSB is growing!

    Cons

    It appears that executive management has created a level of associate vice presidents (AVPs) to play hard ball against the lower level employees. The AVPs are often rude and disrespectful toward their subordinates. This may be by design or because the AVPs are over-worked. I'll allow for that. Either way, it makes for a very poor work environment and poor decision-making by management. There's very little room to move upward too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the AVPs treat their employees with respect and if needed, give the AVPs a break by creating another level under them for upward mobility and decision-making.
