I have been working at Guaranty Bank full-time

Pros

- Very flexible hours
- Very "Hands off" Management approach
- 401K has a Roth option
- Vacation Accrual

First note, there are many companies that run under the name Guaranty Bank, and some people have given reviews for some of these other companies (some with not the greatest reputation) under this Guaranty Bank.

The company has a great work/life balance; they really don't want anyone working more than 40 hours a week. To show it, certain levels of programmers still make an hourly rate, and even earn overtime!

The Vacation system can be a blessing or a curse, depending on what kind of background you come from. Instead of giving you so many sick and personal days, you only get PTO days. So, when you are sick you are taking a vacation day. However, you accrue these days VERY quickly (By the first of the year after your have been hired, you will be getting just shy of four weeks a year. They can also be rolled over, so no losing days.

Cons

401k Match is very low (only 25%)

A lot of "from the hip" decisions, and the need for a more formalized process.

Advice to Management

Formalize your IT process with some slight more ridged standards.

    I worked at Guaranty Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The company are all in-store branches, therefore it is easier to gain new customers.

    Cons

    The management had poor priorites.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management only recognizes how many accounts each employees open. It's hard for the company to retain their customers since they hire employees that are good at selling an account but lack in customer service and operations, that's not what you look for in a bank.
