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

    Pros

    I love the opportunity I have here to influence the business. I have a voice and the company is willing to listen. They welcome feedback and are supportive. It’s refreshing to be at a company where people truly want to help you succeed. The company is transparent about the direction and initiatives they are taking to improve/ enhance the business. With that, the CEO, Doug Levy, and Senior Leadership are very visible. I truly believe the company and its employees embody their mission by having the customers at the center of their decisions. I am constantly learning in my role and they give me the flexibility to do so. I appreciate the diversity throughout the entire organization and am proud to work for a company that values that not only in its employees but in its customer base as well.

    Cons

    Technology isn’t always up to date but I have seen changes in certain departments that support a move to more efficient systems and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! I love to see all of the positive changes within the last few years and am feeling extremely confident in the future direction of the company.
