    I have been working at Spirit of Texas Bank for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work for inexperienced college students that need a summer job

    Cons

    Tedious, but that isn’t a problem if you are good with small details. Small learning curve

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Spirit of Texas Bank full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive. Good benefits. Good people to learn from. Flexible work hours. Good experience. Possibility for equity stake.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy. Very layered system of controls. Difficult review process for lending. Various pockets of difficult-to-deal-with operations. Takes too much time to get loans approved. Customers are often gouged.

    Advice to Management

    As a community bank, it's important for bankers to have meaningful relationships with customers. This is impossible due to the multi-layered approval process that keeps lenders and officers from being able to approve daily transactions and loans. A top-down process makes it difficult to grow the customer base.

    I have been working at Spirit of Texas Bank full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits and management is very flexible with any time needed off for personal matters.

    Cons

    Results are the only thing management cares about. If you are not able to resolve something due to outside factors you don't have control on, it is still looked down on. You can get an "atta boy" one second and then be reprimanded two minutes later by someone else because it wasn't good for them.

    Advice to Management

    Don't tell your employee that they will be doing one specific thing only to hand them additional important daily taskers they then have to juggle. If you do this, don't be surprised when it starts taking away from results you want achieved from other areas.
