    easy going culture, nice coworkers

    Very cheap when it comes to salaries

    Advice to Management

    pay your talent more competitive salaries and you'll see them stay longer and work harder

    Pros

    You can't hardly get fired for being lazy.

    Cons

    The higher-ups continue to profit from the "Do more for less pay" edict that they force on lower managers and staff employees. Bonuses and raises are rare, and if you use any of the sick days that they give you then you are not allowed a raise at the next annual review.

    Advice to Management

    DO things the proper way and stop looking for the easy way to drop a problem on somebody else's desk.

    I worked at Republic Bancorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Each associate does collect a bi-weekly paycheck. The company at one time did give back to the community.

    Cons

    Very authoritarian atmosphere. Associates operate in fear. Management appears to be on board with change, yet there is very little support or follow through. Associates develop a very status quo attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Do some serious house keeping and make the over due changes. Your company is successful but it can not continue to operate as if there is only a handful of banking centers.

    I have been working at Republic Bancorp full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Surrounded by good people as co-workers. Pay is above average and the bank has a community interest. Louisville being such a small city the bank is a decent size employer and therefore many friends may also be associated with the bank. Turn over rate at upper management seems to be low which means initiatives and goals are consistent. Upper management focuses on the safe and soundness of banking and doesn't get looped into the risk based banking model.

    Cons

    Times are changing with the bank. Expanding and losing some of the local bank glitter. Seems stock prices are becoming more important than the employees based on recent staff reductions. Benefits, holidays, and vacation/sick time is not comparable to other area companies. You must have like 5 years of service to get an extra week of vacation and then like 15 to get another week.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the dollar jeopardize your loyalty to your employees. Need to plan for the ups and downs of the business world and not penalize your employees when the financials are not what is desired. Focus on being proactive with your employees rather than reactive when they decide to part ways.

    Pros

    The bank office provides some nice facilities

    Cons

    Below average benefits and pay. Executives do well, but it does not translate to any benefit for hard work completed by employees.

    Pros

    Once upon a time morally correct.

    Cons

    Company has become all about the money. Ever since the great loss of the patriarch the company has gone down hill. No respect or appreciation for long term employees. No more necessity for promotion within.
