    Pros

    Very fortunate to have a great boss and easy going coworkers. Really like the culture and the fact there is a mascot. Also there is room to grow within the company.

    Cons

    Workload needs to slow down.

    Advice to Management

    Workload needs to slow down a little, I think employees are feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the acquisition taking place.

    Cons

    Upper management is not held accountable
    Salary
    Does not promote from within
    budgets are lacking in some areas and wasted in others
    Dress code

    Advice to Management

    The company needs to review the executive management in departments that have high turn over. Exit interviews are being overlooked and disregarded. The HR department does not follow through on complaints regarding management. There is no open door policy. Once a complaint is made, instead of investigating, HR alerts the manager which employee is complaining and that manager pushes them to quit. Several departments within PlainsCapital do not provide employees incentive to stay. They would rather hire from outside of the company at a high salary than to hire from within and give that person an opportunity for advancement and pay increase. They also require employees to take on additional responsibilities without an increase in compensation. As a whole, this company needs to look at their upper management and examine what is best for the company moving forward. it would also be beneficial to encourage hard working employees to stay with the company by providing fair compensation and promote from within rather than hire someone outside the company.

    Pros

    The foundation of this company is solid. Most executives have been with the company for 10 years plus. Work/life balance is good. Customer seem to love the company.

    Cons

    Your experience will differ greatly based on location and manager. Some long-tenured execs should retire but won't. The company has grown quickly and maybe outpaced its talent pool. Money is tight in some areas but wasted in others.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits, active in the community

    Cons

    Ineffective management
    No upward mobility
    Inability to react to change

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen to your employees. Senior Management is not doing an effective job of managing their leaders. Just an overall lackadaisical feel coming from them.

    Pros

    The work environment is awesome. Everyone seems laid-back but still professional. It's a nice balance. For a part time job I couldn't ask for better pay. The management seems competent and respectable. My favorite part is the extensive training. I'm just a part-time teller and I feel like they've already invested a lot in me.

    Cons

    We'll have to wait and see.

    Advice to Management

    None yet.

    Pros

    Great opportunity. Good working relationships with co-workers. Staff was very helpful. There was potential for growth and learning the investment banking business.

    Cons

    Unusual employee termination practices. Terminated abruptly without specific reasons. Reason given gave the impression that unethical practices are happening within the company where I was positioned.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the guidelines specified in the employment handbook.
