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

    Pros

    The culture of this company is amazing. The bottom line is that they care. They care about their employees, their customers, and their community. I believe that First Financial will always stand out as my favorite place to work. They value education of their employees, and they truly want to help you succeed. Their systems are very organized and structured, which helps with seeing results quickly. The company also works very hard to be the best at the services they provide.

    Cons

    The career path is limited, unless you live in Abilene where the headquarters is located. Even then, the cost of living is inexpensive, and the pay reflects that.

    I have been working at First Financial Bankshares full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Promotions are not necessarily easy to come by, but if you live where their headquarters are (in Abilene, TX), there is at least a lot of room to try many different types of jobs and see what position best fits you.

    Cons

    Pay is low (at least in Abilene, TX) and once you're hired it kind of feels like every move is a lateral move unless you can manage to get the title of "Vice President" of something.

    I have been working at First Financial Bankshares part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The internal community is great. The bank does a lot to provide a great environment for employees and is also active in the community itself. I'm only part time but they do a good job of promotions and rewarding employees for hard work. The company is expanding greatly and it's definitely wonderful.

    Cons

    I can't think of anything besides parking, but they're adding more.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, there's a reason employees stick around.

    Great Company to work for. They invest in their customers first and employees.

    I worked at First Financial Bankshares part-time

    Pros

    First Financial has a wonderful, close knit community! I enjoyed my time at my location. They like to hire from within.

    Cons

    One of the downsides to First Financial is that they do not pay as well as other banks in the area. I believe that typical pay there ( in the Abilene area) is 12-13 hr.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to be more consistent. When I had a question, I could call three different managers and get three different answers. Also, I think that their training could be improved. My training consisted of me shadowing another PB for two weeks.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for advancement into management because there isn't much turnover in management in the Abilene bank.

    Great company with quality employees

    pay is static, lower than most in the better roles
    old-school mentality of suits everyday even in 105 degree TX weather

    Advice to Management

    Great 401k/esop for employees, pay better to keep better talent in Abilene, develop from within. Recruit more from the local colleges and focus on rising stars
