    I worked at First Financial Bankshares full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I would say that the benefits are decent. Easy & repetitive.

    Cons

    Very political environment, senior management spends a lot of time at the golf course but then expects the employees to over work, complains about giving overtime, brown nosing or sucking up to the boss IS the culture for this company. Unless you are a white male, do not expect to have any growth potential here.
    "Do as I say, not as I do" culture. They stress that this is a small community bank, when it really is just another corporate bank buying up small banks. HR takes days to call or email you back. Make sure you read and re-read your employee handbook.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to value your employees for the work they do for the company, not what they can actually do for you personally.
