    I worked at Midfirst Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Decent benefits
    - 401k match
    - Bonuses

    Cons

    If you're a teller you start at $11 an hour. Not only are you doing your own work, but you can expect to be doing everyone else's work as well. You're overworked and underpaid. Tellers are the only ones that are unworthy of seats, so you're standing on your feet for sometimes 10+ hours a day. Referral expectations are ridiculous and tellers steal referrals from one another to meet goals. Basically, all the work you put in is nowhere near worth the $11 an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they deserve and treat them all fairly. Give the tellers chairs so they aren't killing their feet every day. Encourage a healthy life and work balance.

    Pros

    Being a smaller bank there's less politics and each banking center really becomes like a family. It's very easy to move up in the company as long as you hit your goals.

    Cons

    Being a smaller company it's harder to get new business in. You really have to do a lot of marketing but you have a little more freedom than you do with bigger companies as well

    Pros

    Large company for Oklahoma means lots of areas of focus, but small enough that it's easy to get noticed. Good location - usually an easy commute from anywhere. Strong corporate values. Since it's' private, limited bureaucracy. High analytics and emphasis on knowing...not guessing. Very low turnover and long view planning. Strong financials and stable.

    Cons

    Some limited ability to advance to the highest ranks. Will not cut low performers. Can be very conservative in culture with emphasis on tradition.

    Advice to Management

    Less emphasis on graduate degrees and more on the quality of the candidate. Being pro-active about giving younger talent more opportunities will allow them to grow within instead of getting anxious and leaving the company to grow somewhere else.
