    I have been working at Sunflower Bank full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is a great place for people who are true go-getters and like to develop things and take things to the next level. Passion and energy are very much valued. It feels more like an entrepreneurial organization based on its community approach. They empower the local community. The corporate headquarters is practically a ghost town as leadership is generally out in the field. It does not feel at all like a corporate, red-tape bureaucracy.

    Cons

    Many areas are under staffed, which forces resourcefulness.

    I worked at Sunflower Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The benefits are good, including 401k match of 6%

    Cons

    The culture is terrible. The executive level management doesn’t get to know the core employees so they are not fully invested in their people. I’ve never worked in an atmosphere where the executive team is so petty and cliquish. It’s so unprofessional. If you’re not their “type” they will make working their miserable to make you look elsewhere and find something else. Hints the terrible turnover people speak of. No work life balance and after you work your tail off don’t expect someone to acknowledge your good work. There are a lot of big fish in a little pond at this bank. If you’ve worked at bigger banks that know what they are doing, have better systems and a defined work culture then this is not the job for you. If it’s your only option, take it...but don’t invest your career here.

    I worked at Sunflower Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Has some good people in various departments that are trying to make a difference. Not much else positive.

    Cons

    From the top down this is a massively imploding company. The CEO has messed up prior companies and is doing the same here. The company also struggles with a poor culture and no identity of what it wants to be. There isn't any communication on the direction the company is going. Planning is nonexistent here. Projects are rushed and not well thought out. There are so many fires to put out that nothing meaningful gets truly accomplished. For your sanity, steer clear and find another place to work.
