    I worked at First National Bank of Omaha (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay with incentives. Friendly coworkers and opportunities for development and growth. No late nights or evenings.

    Cons

    I did have to work some saturdays and sales goals were always changing. They we're manageable but sometimes you didn't know what your goals were. Also incentives started to decline

    I worked at First National Bank of Omaha (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, good working conditions, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    They cut 70 people from the IT division and 20 had over 25 years experience which means once you start to make too much money in their eyes it's time to replace you.

  5. "Great Place to Work for Information Technology, Adapting to an Agile/Scrum/Kanban software development method"

    I worked at First National Bank of Omaha full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    First National is a very good place to work, especially in the Information Technology areas. They treat their employees with respect and try to maintain a work/life balance. They are adapting to an agile software development methodology which will clarify what is expected. It appears that this would be an excellent place to work if you enjoy Agile/Scrum/Kanban as they now seem to have figured out how they want to work.

    Overall, First National is a privately held bank, and the family that owns it is looking for the long-term health of the bank. This means that it is fairly conservative and risk adverse, so no large hire-then-fire cycles or financial product fads of the month. Employment should be fairly steady. They reward loyalty and long-term service.

    There is a First National Operating Philosophy published in their "little green book" that emphasizes characteristics like respect, integrity, and helpfulness. They really do act this way. This is a company that has some of the best integrity and character that I have ever worked for or with. You can feel pride about working there.

    Cons

    At the moment the bank is attempting to change their software development process from the classic waterfall style to the agile style. They have brought in a consultant and the change is actually succeeding, and probably better than expected. The down side is that there is a fair amount of confusion and stress due to the restructuring and personnel reductions that has occurred.

    The software varies considerably in its modernity. Some systems are very old and almost out of support and some are using the latest technologies, and it can be some code whip-lash adjusting.

    Code development has historically been very decentralized, so you can expect to see a variety of languages on a variety of operating systems.

    As a large and risk-adverse organization, it can be a bit slow and bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    The bank has always had a greater demand for software development than the ability to deliver it. With the restructuring, would have preferred to increase software development capacity by redeploying staff rather than maintaining the the existing level with reduced staff. I wish them the best of luck and would be very interested in rejoining the bank in the future.
