Solid company for long-term employment stability and advancement.

Management (Current Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I have been working at OmniAmerican full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThere are strong advancement opportunities for women, with over 50% of executive positions filled by women. The company is small enough to get to know everyone from the tellers at your local branch to the CEO. Demonstrating competence and willingness to take on new challenges is rewarded.

ConsSince OmniAmerican is such a small company the grapevine is thriving and everyone seems to know what everyone else is doing.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement values fresh perspectives and ideas for improvements. Find a way to mine this information from staff at all levels of the organization.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good Ol'Boy Management

Mid Management (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I worked at OmniAmerican full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI received a regular paycheck.

ConsTurnover is tremendous. I saw entire departments turnover repeatedly. If you attended TCU, you will do well at OmniAmerican, they protect their own. The rest of their employees are simply warm bodies in chairs, expendable at the whim of senior management. When strategies that senior management concocts fail, staff at mid management and lower pay the price. Their management strategy seems to be once an employee reaches the highest level of their pay grade, they are laid off, and replaced with lower paying employees doing the same job. Additionally, they exploit upper management, by using them to solve a problem, then get rid of them and their high salaries by setting them up to fail. I saw this strategy repeatedly.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe Board needs to take a hard look at senior management, and ask themselves this: "What is the common denominator in ALL of OmniAmerican's problems?" The answer is obvious to anyone that works there...senior management.

Bad Benefits, bad HR

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at OmniAmerican full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat coworkers! The company is doing well and I enjoy the work.

ConsThe HR department is terrible. Medical benefits are a joke and cost a fortune. Insurance barely covers anything and you have to dispute everything. I effectively took a 15% pay cut from last job because all benefits cost so much more.

Many coworkers have the same problems.

Also, don't trust HR they are deceptive and unfair in every way.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix benefits and fix HR

Great work, but don't expect to be rewarded for it!

Back Office Support Employee (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I worked at OmniAmerican full-time for more than 8 years

ProsNice people, beautiful office spaces, meaningful work and project load.

ConsHIGH turnover, low diversity especially in upper management. Politics are rampant and it's important to ask for the salary you want up front since raises are small and promotions far and few between. Everyone is pretty friendly, but beware, long-term managers won't think twice about kicking the rungs out beneath them once they're promoted. It's sad, really.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake another look at your mission and values statement and CREATE a culture statement that includes an appreciation for diversity in the workplace...and MEAN IT.

You Are On Your Own

Customer Service Manager (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

I worked at OmniAmerican

ProsSmall hometown bank. Several locations (15)

ConsNo training on company procedures and no one is willing to help you. Their attitude is that you are a thorn in their side if you ask questions. When you cannot get procedural answers to your questions. They want to write you up for not knowing the answers. Going to the HR or upper management is a joke. I had many disturbing occurrences documented and they did not want to hear any of it. I did have one upper management person ask me to keep documenting information for her. She said she would be getting back to me about these concerns. She never contacted me again. This bank has no team organization. If you are not part of the click you will be forced out. I would not wish this experience on my worst enemy. Steer clear.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at your organization. Open your eyes to what is going on withing your own managment. Everyone seems to have blinders on. You are one of the rudest, unprofessional companies that I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. This me me me attitude will be the downfall of this company. It takes s a team of people working together to be successful.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
