    -Excellent brand recognition in major markets
    -Opportunity to gain broad and deep experience across functions and segments
    -Strongest capital position in the history of the company

    Cons

    -Tough regulatory environment with increasingly difficult standards
    -Independent operating companies do not yet fully leverage opportunities for synergy although significant progress has been made

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many strides have been made to bring the company closer to a unified vision, strategy, and operating company. However, we have a long way to go here and two things must improve for us to achieve our full potential-1) Improved clarity and coordination of communication, and 2) Leveraging and retaining our most talented people for our most significant opportunities.

    Pros

    get more money than a teller
    usually get your own office
    good customer service learning experience

    Cons

    this position is for a young employee to overwork them for crap pay
    the company has almost no growth. you have tons of responsibility like opening and closing the branch you need to be responsible for all teller overrides which makes you liable for any new teller mistakes. while still having sales goals. very stressful job

    Pros

    Very friendly, ranked high in working mother's magazine. Company is very loyal to its customers and employees and continues to maintain a family owned bank mentality. I am very proud to be an employee as well as a customer of the bank and encourage those in the metro area to support locally owned banks versus national banks.

    Cons

    Getting promotions can take time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to improve on communicating the company's message.

    Current Employee - Credit Analyst in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at First National of Nebraska

    Pros

    Employment is fairly stable so the risks of layoffs is not as great as other companys. The benefits have always been stellar but recent changes in the health insurance is making is more average that exceptional.

    Cons

    The pay is on the low side, they say this is offset by the benefits but many large companies offer the same benefits with better pay. The jobs also offers little flexibility. The bank touts that it offers part-time hours and flexible work weeks but it doesn't really happen. If you happen to be lucky enough to arrange something flexible its a good sign you'll get laid off soon. Most of the middle managers are very mediocre and hard to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mean what you say. Employees aren't idiots and we can tell when we are just being given lines.
