    Pros

    Not micro managed, job security

    Cons

    Software issues, pay, communication across the board is poor. There is no upward mobility

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be a manager and what it takes to lead. Team build and motivate staff. Politics and talking about people doesn't help.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Ameris Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Ameris Bank gained branches and took over competitors at a time when many banks in the Georgia region were failing. It offers job security and reasonable benefits. With headquarters in a small town, there are no traffic delays during the daily commute.

    Cons

    The computing infrastructure was housed in substandard facilities. The problems were well understood and plans were made for improvement. The rapid expansion of the company to other locations kept the IT staff very busy with conversions. Plan on working way more than 40 hours a week with no additional compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough staff to perform the required work and allow a little time off on occasion.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ameris Bank full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits, especially for officers or long time employees

    Cons

    Several Reductions in Force over last 5 years, most recent late 2012 early 2013. Everything is geared toward increasing stock price. Top management in Moultire, GA jhave made out great due to stock bonuses while the rest of the bank has sacrificed by loss of 401k match, no raises and job elimination.

    Advice to Management

    Think about all your stake holders -- employees, customers and the community and not just yourself and those who own large amount of your shares.

    Current Employee - Teller in Cordele, GA
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ameris Bank

    Pros

    Great work hours and benefits. I worked with a family-oriented staff. I think that it is great that this bank gives out free gifts for new account customers. It is also a community bank.

    Cons

    The pay isn't great. Most of the management do not have college degrees. There are not enough women and minority in management positions. Ameris Bank is only located in certain areas: Georgia, Florida, Alabama ans South Carolina.

    Advice to Management

    I wish that Ameris Bank in Cordele, Georgia had more officers with college degrees. There are quite a few people who are far less qualified for their jobs.
