    I worked at Stock Yards Bank & Trust full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people that work there are fantastic and are always willing to work hard and help out. Community bank so it feels like family.

    Cons

    Upper management does not always listen to employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your front line employees. They are the ones who talk to the customers on a daily basis and they generally know how the customers will react to certain changes/upgrades.

    Family atmosphere, small company, locally owned, haven't gotten so big that they have forgotten employee names

    I worked at Stock Yards Bank & Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I spent far too much brain power trying to think of a pro to be fair minded, but I give up.

    Cons

    This company promised me a good job and, did not deliver. They did not train me properly and cut me when I wasn't able to do the job that they poorly trained me for.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are shocked by how many entry-level employees don't stick around. Really? You don't offer them any real incentive to work for you. Terrible pay.

    I worked at Stock Yards Bank & Trust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are not many pros to this company. I would say the Christmas Party is the best thing about it. Nice dinner. Free drinks. And a very small bonus. Director of my department was amazing. Managers under him/her leads me into next section...

    Cons

    Belittle employees. Wrote up employees for missing work due to death of parent, complications with pregnancy, and any other excuse. No care for staff. Treated as disposable with no respect. Provide little to no training. Immediate manager was disrespectful, rude, condescending, and verbally abusive. Several individuals have left because of him/her. Cannot keep employees. High turnover leads to an overflow of untrained staff. Repeatedly advised they "Do not have time to train"

    Advice to Management

    Need to understand employees are your greatest asset and without them you wouldn't be in business. Employee satisfaction decreases turnover and leads to greater profits. You're only benefitting yourself by treating employees with dignity and respect. Take care of employees first and customers will follow. Also make use of the talented individuals who work for you. Why let good talent go to waste?

    I worked at Stock Yards Bank & Trust full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good 401k matching, Christmas bonus, develop relationships with regular customers, few weekend hours, no nights, opportunities to grow even without a college degree.

    Cons

    too many immature and insecure branch managers and area managers don't want to support or manage-only interested in developing referrals, policies and procedures change often with little or no training leaving branch employees to to figure things out on their own, often while helping a customer, and support people are often critical when asked for help (but some are very nice), managers are difficult to find when needed expecting us to make decisions we are not authorized to make and if we make the wrong decision we are criticized, lots of favoritism, general atmosphere of competition, too few employees per branch, too many are expected to know everything from teller duties to making loans and opening complicated accounts such as business accounts, estate accounts, IRAs with little support

    Advice to Management

    Ask for advice and listen to those working directly with the customers, get rid of the area managers who are too removed from the day to day at the branches to be of any use to them and bring back the assistant managers, separate teller and desk duties, hire mature managers and train them to manage and give them support, have more employees per branch
