    I have been working at ViewPoint Financial full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    -Better than average benefits
    -Great chance for advancement
    -Great employee rewards

    The company continues to grow and move in the right direction. They are taking a bank that was previously a credit union and making it a viable threat to the bigger banks. There are great opportunites to advance with this company and compenstation is above average in my opinion.

    Cons

    -Systems are out of date
    -Makes operations difficult for the customer sometimes

    The systems here are out of date, and at times can be difficult to navigate. The systems are the biggest downfall as of now, but they are making strides in the right direction to correct the issue

    Advice to Management

    Management is great, keep up the good work. They give you the tools and knowledge to advance if that is something you choose to do.

    I have been working at ViewPoint Financial full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There is good staff retention.

    Cons

    Not all staff who have been with company long-term are open to change for growth.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of financially taking care of support staff who assist management or bonus-making staff in being successful.

    Pros

    Good Values and work culture

    Cons

    Upper Management should put more attention to detail and spend more time in actual branches.
    New CEO is making too many changes too quickly, which might upset current customers

    Pros

    Given the free reign to work how, when, and where I needed to get my job done. Felt very valued by my management and was appreciated and rewarded consistently for my performance.

    Cons

    I was hired at a very low pay level regardless of my performance. Small market area of Dallas only limited some sales opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the leadership of ViewPoint Bank has done an exceptional job developing the bank defining its niche within a saturated banking market. I would work for this company again.

    I worked at ViewPoint Financial full-time

    Pros

    Lots of nice people and nice offices. Good location in Plano. Growing company, recently purchased Legacy Bank (ViewPoint will be taking the Legacy name). New CEO, Kevin Hannigan, seems progressive and appears to care about employees.

    Cons

    Individuals are promoted and kept in positions for years for political reasons without possessing necessary skills for the job, resulting in incompetence and mistakes which are blamed on lower level employees. Extreme lack of communication in my department. Training not provided, and instead of recognizing that mistakes are an indication of training needed, they were treated as "not doing what asked". Did not receive regular evaluations.

    Advice to Management

    Provide skills and leadership training to management. Do not promote unless inidvidual is qualified for the position.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Growing company will bring more opportunites. Opportunities for promotion although some promotions not warranted do to lack of job skills.

    Cons

    Titles doled out for political reasons, not abilities. Ethical issues with some in management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Spread bonuses to rank & file, rather than just to upper management and select people who also receive stock and options. Rich get richer but those who actually get the work done don't receive bonuses. Too much greed with management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ViewPoint Financial full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not in downtown Dallas, some good people to work with.

    Cons

    Really under market benefits, including salary and health insurance. Managers do not like to share information and will not push for better benefits for their direct reports. Lenders rule here and anyone else is a necessary evil.

    Advice to Management

    Try to share some of the wealth with employees who are working hard, but may not be lending officers. Managers need to stop being afraid to speak up and support better benefits for their employees. Provide opportunities for promotion.
