    Pros

    lots of friendly co-workers and usually over time availiable

    Cons

    Be prepared to use several systems per a call. The main down fall is way out dated systems. Sometimes using a ten to handle a simple question or two.

    I worked at First National Bank Omaha

    Pros

    Extremely nice coworkers, financial benefits are good, the work-life balance is also great. The wages are satisfactory and good in some other positions.

    Cons

    As with any large organization things get done really slow and after a lot of emails. Most of the projects are literally unnecessary by the time they are actually published. Finally what others have mentioned about silos is quite true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before major restructuring please at least get some feedback from the employees involved.

    Pros

    Great work/life balance. Opportunity for career growth throughout FNBO & First Bankcard. The bank really does care about their employees.

    Cons

    Impossible to get anything done technology wise. Upper management expects high performance & high growth but will not give you the proper tools, technology resources, etc. to get things done. This really ties your hands on what you can do. Working with Legal is a nightmare & is a known problem that never REALLY gets addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs to breakdown silos & listen to employees. More technology resources are needed if growth is expected. Don't freeze hiring as additional employees are needed in many areas to handle growth.

    I have been working at First National Bank Omaha full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    FNBO is a high-performing bank with high expectations. In return for the hard work, though, they give me great benefits and flexibility as a working parent. I've basically raised my two boys with the help of my employer, from maternity leave to child care to a summer camp that picks up/drops off my kids on site, this place is hard to beat! On top of that, the bank does a great job of developing leadership and fostering it up the corporate ladder.

    Cons

    Banking in general can be a bit behind other industries when it comes to technology, so that can be frustrating to understand what consumers expect and that we're a ways a way from fulfilling those expectations. I don't think that's unique to FNBO, though, and honestly, we're a bank; we need to make sure that whatever technology we invest in that it's not compromising the security of our customers' financials!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even as you grow, keep in mind the traditional values you've built such a strong foundation upon - the green book!

    Pros

    Privately owned. Family cares about employees. Hard working, loyal employees. More for growth if you know the right people.

    Cons

    If you don't fit in the culture (conversative, ruled by few, toe the company line) you will get burnt out. You need to know the right people to get into the coveted roles. There is a lot of talk and very little action. Inconsistency with the implementation of corporate policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent and fair. Value differing opinons. Avoid the good ol' boys network mentality.
