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

    Pros

    Decent 401K match and stock purchase, co-workers, bank holidays, insurance ok-expensive if you have a family.

    Cons

    Outdated technology, no employee incentives, employees pay for their own Christmas party through a payroll deferral, understaffed, first year 2 days vacation if you begin after Jan 1st, which is unheard of and and creates burnout, upper management is cheap.

    Advice to Management

    If you cared more about your employees the turnover rate would be a lot lower. Upper management decisions affect those who do the day to day work and customer contact -consider that. High stress due to too much work on one person.

    I have been working at Prosperity Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This bank has a ton of potential..........after it gets sold off to someone else or the current upper management retires because they really don't care. There are some great employees that work here and most employees care about the bank. There are a select few in upper management that could care less about their employees, which has killed the morale at the bank.
    If you're a yes man, you will fit right in!!!

    Cons

    -Zero accountability (no goals, no motivation, no incentives to grow)
    -Terrible training
    -Upper management is so cheap and worried about cutting costs to beef up their stock price, that they will throw a fit about expensing toilet paper, paper towels, and Kleenex. If you want hand sanitizer, the employees have to purchase it THEMSELVES; pretty disgusting when you're handling nasty, germ-infested money. This is the only bank you will ever see that DOES NOT have hand sanitizer.....
    -Morale compares to that of the grim reaper; upper management doesn't do anything to incentivize the employees, so in turn they don't care either.
    -Majority of the branches are in bad (some in dangerous) condition; safety and health wise. Trying to get something approved to be fixed or upgraded is out of the picture because the executives don't take pride in their buildings.
    -IT and the banking systems are the most antiquated systems I've ever seen, so don't expect anything new or nice; they're still stuck in the stone ages.
    -Terrible communication between the branches and different departments; no one communicates anything and most employees don't even know what is available.
    -Don't share an opinion, unless it agrees with the executives. This is the good ol' boy system, and will continue to work with people/contractors, etc even when they could be saving hundreds of thousands of dollars. I'm seriously questioning their business skills and how this bank is still around........

    Advice to Management

    If you stopped worrying so much about your stock price and focused more of your attention on your employees (actually INVESTED in them), you wouldn't have to worry so much about your stock because employees would actually CARE about the bank. Consider fixing up some of your branches before OSHA shuts them down; show some pride (and that you care) by investing in your buildings! Stop being so cheap by not allowing branches to purchase necessities- toilet paper, paper towels, DRINKABLE WATER, plates, coffee (for CUSTOMERS), HAND SANITIZER, you get the picture (I hope).
