    Pros

    Great company to work for, the people are amazing and everyone is like a family. The hours are also so of best I have ever seen for a bank.

    Cons

    The only real downfall to this job is the amount of money you make. They could afford to pay their employees more for how good of customer service they provide.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more pay to employees, other than that, the company is perfect.

    I have been working at Great Southern Bancorp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    GREAT benefits for full time and part time employees, included paid time off, 401k, insurance and product discounts within the company. Excellent training staff with an at your own pace concept. Smaller company mindset, made it feel more personal.

    Cons

    Promotions are few and far between unless someone above you leaves, and with only 4-5 employees at smaller branches, it's unlikely. Pay isn't the greatest, it's better suited for a student or someone with a second household income.

    Advice to Management

    In order to keep employees, think about giving small raises based on performance. It's discouraging to those who are advancing with training and taking on more responsibilities/job duties but are receiving nothing in return. As far as leadership and office culture, I wouldn't change a thing. I absolutely LOVED working with this company and would come back in a heartbeat if the pay were better.

    I have been working at Great Southern Bancorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits and pay is really good. They go out of their way to make sure you are compensated. They are very flexible and understanding.

    Cons

    The work can be very stressful around audit time. The projects can be very vague and it can be frustrating trying to cater to management.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear with the projects that you hand out. Realize that your workers need adequate training in order to feel like they know what they are doing at their job.
