    Bottom line...Love working here!

    Operations (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany is financially sound with ethics being held to a high standard.

    ConsManagement should be earned and not based on seniority. Put people in management positions that actually show management and leadership skills and care about the staff. Does not compensate base on abilities only job title.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealize staffs potential and utilize it instead of fearing that they are after your job and not utilizing the staff's abilities completely!

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

    BEWARE!!!

    Administration (Former Employee)

    ProsCan't think of a single one.

    ConsBeware if this bank takes over a bank where you're currently working. Everything is all "puppy dogs and rainbows" in the beginning and they welcome you with open arms. THEN they make you apply for your own job, the job that you've been handling very well for years, thank you very much. And been receiving great reviews at too. Don't hold your breath. You'll be out the door. They'll hang on to you for a little while to "help with the transition". But you'll be treated like you're invisible while you're "helping". You might as well be part of the after-hours cleaning crew for all the respect you're given during this time. If this bank comes calling, get out while you can.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a soul.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    They do things harder, not smarter

    Can't Say (Current Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsPlenty of spare time to goof off

    ConsThey keep acquiring new banks yet continue to do back office things in an old school manual fashion. It's all about titles and a horse and pony show...not about work. Insanity begins as I sit at my desk days on end with absolutely nothing to do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut people in management positions that actually show management and leadership skills.

    Good place to begin my career.

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsI don't worry about the company failing.

    ConsThe compensation is very low compared to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore communication from the leadership team. There should be some physical presence.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsIt's a paycheck. Front line staff are great.

    ConsExecutive Management is aloof. Lack of communication. Lack of respect to the front line staff. Good old boy network that cover up for each other.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice is to the Board of Directors. You need to vet your people. You have definate charecter flaws in the executive management.

    Doing more is what we do best!

    Human Resources Director (Current Employee)
    Louisville, KY

    ProsWe are a bank committed to providing the best customer service possible to our customers and a positive, supportive environment for our employees. Ethics are held in the highest regard. Business strategy is shared with all employees and they are recognized as critical to the success of the bank.

    We strive to be a community bank with big bank solutions. Our products and services are comparable to larger banks in our industry. Our ability to respond quickly to customer needs puts us one step ahead of the bigger, regional, publicly-held banks.

    Ownership is committed to growing our bank. Our employees are also committed to reaching that goal.

    ConsExecutive management changes too often.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNever forget that leadership includes communicating the vision with employees.

    Ups and Downs

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCustomer service from the staff is exceptional.
    Two weeks of vacation until 5 years and then an additional day up to 3 weeks.
    The core values were wonderful.

    ConsNo promotions from within above FSR level.
    Unfair treatment of staff with obvious favoritism.
    Market Leaders have too much control over the individual branch employees.
    The bank is now leaning towards a sales oriented platform instead of a service one.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe bank is growing much too fast for the support side. Instead of promoting virtually every employee who is not a teller or FSR to a Vice President is only giving a pay raise to those who don't deserve it as much as the front line people. The tellers and FSRs are the backbone of this company and employees will continue to look elsewhere if the morale is not increase and raises are not given where they are deserved.

    Used to be a great place to work until growth became the #1 objective.

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee)

    ProsVery competent senior management team

    ConsAs soon as the bank began to acquire other banks, the culture immediately changed. Taking care of long time employees of SCBT was no longer the 'top' priority of senior management. Growth was all that mattered. And once size is all that matters, morale takes a hit, everyone has to start fitting in a 'box' unlike before, and you begin to feel more like a number than an employee. And the number of hours you had to put in just to keep up with the growth (I'm talking 65-80 hours EVERY single week) just wasn't worth it anymore.
