    I have been working at Woodforest Financial full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay, upward mobility, training, incentives, benefits

    I've been with the company for one year and 8 months. I became an assistant branch manager in 1 year and 4 months. To all the people saying all these bad things they are just lazy. If you work hard and are vocal you will move up in this company. Positions are ALWAYS available and upper management is always looking for employees to promote. In two more months i'll be going out for a branch manager position and i feel pretty good about my chances. Don't let lazy people deter you from this company. The 401k is also excellent. GREAT company to work for.

    Cons

    Hours, shirts

    I just didn't like paying for this shirts!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My management has been great so far.
