    I have been working at Guaranty Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family owned
    Opportunities for advancement
    Good people
    Training opportunities
    Had a great mission to help the unbanked and underbanked

    Cons

    The ship is sinking... Guaranty has been acquired by another bank and the majority of jobs have already been eliminated and most of the people left will be gone in the next several months. The acquiring bank is much larger and it's a web of bureaucracy that makes it difficult to get answers or get anything done.
