    Pros

    The internal community is great. The bank does a lot to provide a great environment for employees and is also active in the community itself. I'm only part time but they do a good job of promotions and rewarding employees for hard work. The company is expanding greatly and it's definitely wonderful.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything besides parking, but they're adding more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, there's a reason employees stick around.

  2. Pretty decent place to work.

    Pros

    Exposure to lots of different areas, sometimes too much. :)

    Cons

    Not enough resources, low salary by any standard (even adjusted for location), virtually no room for promotion

    Advice to Management

    Get competitive with salaries, lower cost of insurance. Health insurance is almost 750/month!

    Pros

    Promotions are not necessarily easy to come by, but if you live where their headquarters are (in Abilene, TX), there is at least a lot of room to try many different types of jobs and see what position best fits you.

    Cons

    Pay is low (at least in Abilene, TX) and once you're hired it kind of feels like every move is a lateral move unless you can manage to get the title of "Vice President" of something.

    Pros

    The culture of this company is amazing. The bottom line is that they care. They care about their employees, their customers, and their community. I believe that First Financial will always stand out as my favorite place to work. They value education of their employees, and they truly want to help you succeed. Their systems are very organized and structured, which helps with seeing results quickly. The company also works very hard to be the best at the services they provide.

    Cons

    The career path is limited, unless you live in Abilene where the headquarters is located. Even then, the cost of living is inexpensive, and the pay reflects that.

  6. Horrible working experience, this company does not care for their employees.

    Pros

    You get great insurances working for this company.

    Cons

    Supervisors can treat you however they like and human resources will do nothing about it. Not a good working enviroment.

    Advice to Management

    Probably need to hire a different set of managers who care for their employees.

    Pros

    Flexible Work Hours
    Friendly and conducive environment
    Great coworkers
    Rewards for performance
    Nice Work Life balance
    Decent enough benefits but could be better
    Nice if you are ok staying in the same department and not moving up for long periods of time.

    Cons

    Very Low salary/pay
    Lack of growth opportunities
    Slow promotional opportunities
    Non- challenging often times
    No maternity leave, bereavement leave, marriage leave etc
    Bias towards male employees
    HR seems to look out for the best interest of the employer more than the employee

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay for employees, provide more opportunities for employees to grow, grant more time off like marriage leave, bereavement leave, maternity leave etc. Hire more women in positions of authority.
