    I worked at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The region I worked for in my opinion had great condition-workers and good management. Pay for my region I believe was slightly above average and training is good at this institute.

    Cons

    I feel like this company does like to promote from within but due to in my division having smaller branches the only positions that ever became available were entry jobs it was harder to move up. Incentives are not the best they could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do... I feel like you are doing a good job.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and paid time off. Referral incentives are great. Fairly nice environment to work in. Dress code has recently become more relaxed.

    I have been working at Bank of the Ozarks full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Managers and Staff are given a high degree of autonomy to sink or swim with their programs.
    Resources are being deployed, and new Programs are being built across the Bank to improve in areas that need it.
    Great work life balance.
    A focus on performance rather than talk - so the dead weight doesn't stay too long.

    Cons

    Not a lot of feed back in the form of detailed Performance Reviews, mostly informal - so you don't know exactly how secure your job is.
    Short Term Incentives (Cash Bonus) are not given for the work already done.
    Long Term Incentives (Stock Options) for the work already done have a 3 Year vesting period.
    Certain people are in roles that they aren't really qualified or suited for.

    Advice to Management

    Align your compensation plans with peer institutions.
    Steer clear of creating too much internal red tape.

    Pros

    Friendly work place and good management. Seems like a company that a person could really move forward in if they wanted.

    Cons

    I had trouble getting off a a few times, but I think that was just my branch.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
