    Pros

    Structured and organized with well established policies and procedures. Fill positions at retail level from within.

    Cons

    Low pay wages to start with very low pay raises given at yearly performance review. High turnover in the upper level management positions which usually resulted in changes to sales goals every few months.

    Pros

    The bank was sold. Maybe new management will be able to see through the ineptness of the current management and correct it

    Cons

    The clock is ticking & people will lose their jobs once the new bank takes control in the fall of 2014. Layoffs just in time for the holidays. Now that IS the Omni way

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the ride until the end because when it stops there wont be any getting back on. Be honest with your people & let them know when they will be let go because of the takeover.

    I worked at OmniAmerican full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The compensation is good and the accommodations (office, fitness center, etc.) are very good. The employees are hard working and a dedicated, results oriented staff.

    Cons

    Senior management is very pretentious, arrogant and overly dramatic. They cause way too much unnecessary drama within the organization and have very high turnover of staff as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your senior management better. Stop being critical over things that have no adverse affect to the bank and grade people by their results instead of superficial things like facial hair, the shoes they wear or the way they communicate.
    Eliminating all the top management except the CCO and CFO would be a great start in improving that organization.

    Pros

    Senior Management trusts middle and lower management to get the job done. They are always there to assist and offer advice. Only in certain circumstances do they take a close handling approach. From the CEO, Tim Carter, down the organization is made up of top notch people ready to get the job done.

    Cons

    As a manager I have found myself overloaded with projects at times making it difficult to manage my areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trust and verify.

    Pros

    There are strong advancement opportunities for women, with over 50% of executive positions filled by women. The company is small enough to get to know everyone from the tellers at your local branch to the CEO. Demonstrating competence and willingness to take on new challenges is rewarded.

    Cons

    Since OmniAmerican is such a small company the grapevine is thriving and everyone seems to know what everyone else is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Management values fresh perspectives and ideas for improvements. Find a way to mine this information from staff at all levels of the organization.

    I worked at OmniAmerican full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I received a regular paycheck.

    Cons

    Turnover is tremendous. I saw entire departments turnover repeatedly. If you attended TCU, you will do well at OmniAmerican, they protect their own. The rest of their employees are simply warm bodies in chairs, expendable at the whim of senior management. When strategies that senior management concocts fail, staff at mid management and lower pay the price. Their management strategy seems to be once an employee reaches the highest level of their pay grade, they are laid off, and replaced with lower paying employees doing the same job. Additionally, they exploit upper management, by using them to solve a problem, then get rid of them and their high salaries by setting them up to fail. I saw this strategy repeatedly.

    Advice to Management

    The Board needs to take a hard look at senior management, and ask themselves this: "What is the common denominator in ALL of OmniAmerican's problems?" The answer is obvious to anyone that works there...senior management.
