S.Y. Bancorp Reviews
“Decent job security and reputation, but you have to be willing to put up with some not so pleasant cultural issues.”
Pros – This company is locally owned and conservatively managed. Stock Yards has the reputation in the local community of being well run and having a caring attitude towards its customers. The bank has held up pretty well during tough times for orher banks so job security is a little better that at other banks right now.
Cons – The working environment can sometimes be micromanaged and nitpicky. Success within the bank is based more on how long you have worked here instead of your skill set and job performance.
Advice to Senior Management – Reduce the level of micromanagement. Treat your employees with more respect.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
“Working there helped me gain knowledge but was overall unsatisfactory because of the rigidity of the HR dept.”
Pros – I learned something new every day. The training program is organized, efficient, and effective.
Cons – The company was always two steps behind technology, so growth seemed futile. But they did it anyway, expand and try to grow the business, even though employee yearly raises were cut from the budget that year. They should have treated the employees with more respect.
Pros – Family enviorment and a local company that is respected in the community. Managment is very understanding and also always had a open door
Cons – Pay is below what other banks were paying
