    I worked at First National Bank of Omaha full-time

    Pros

    It's a nice building but that's about it.

    Cons

    Lack of consistent executive leadership and strategic focus.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a short-term and long-term strategic vision and keep to it. Invest in the people and there ideas. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Sticking with the status quo in the banking industry will not end well. The competition that has invested in technology is literally acquiring your customer right from underneath your nose.

    Pros

    • Excellent benefits, insurance plans, Amazing 401K program
    • Flexible about working from home.

    Cons

    • IT salaries at FNBO are traditionally lower than most software companies in Omaha.
    • Nepotism is rampant within the upper ranks.
    • First National does not subsidize you for parking. Thus, be prepared to pay $70 to $120 per month depending upon which garage you choose.
    • Very few women in leadership positions.

    Advice to Management

    When you hear the words “Rich in Tradition” during an interview, you’ll soon discover what the IT recruiter was referring to. Rich in Tradition means Old School Thinking and Stuck in Our Ways!
    FNBO is a very formal and conservative company. Processes have been in place for years and the senior leadership team sees no reason for change. The employee base is comprised of very tenured people (25+ years and counting)
    That are not very welcoming to outsiders. If you are looking to take a major step backwards in your career – then by all means accept a job at FNBO.

    For years the IT organization was considered to be just another expense. The attitude was “why would you invest in IT?” As a result, numerous systems and applications are out of date and out of compliance.
    The tools that are utilized on a daily basis are old and antiquated. Wait, there’s good news. FNBO is now undertaking a major effort to “modernize”. The question you need to ask yourself is “are you willing to wait it out?”. Are you willing to be patient while other companies in Omaha metro are thriving and investing millions in R&D?
