    I have been working at nbkc bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    This culture is second to none. The genuineness of the employees here to help people in all departments is so refreshing. Every lends a helping hand whether it's with a project, not knowing how to complete/find something or just not letting others get overwhelmed without rolling up their sleeves to jump in and help them get the job done. The benefits and time off are very competitive and lucrative. The work/life balance...

    Cons

    I've yet to find a single one. I just wish I would've started working here long before now.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting your employees first and they'll continue to be rock star employees for you/the company as well.

    I have been working at nbkc bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The office space is top notch with management always taking feedback and looking for ways to make improvements. There are so many ways for employees to engage and unwind. The bank supports both employee and bank led events like shuffleboard leagues, speaker series, lunch and learns, celebrations of major milestones, and spontaneous happy hours and BBQs. The work is challenging and there is room to grow and develop....

    Cons

    Communication of the vision can get lost in the noise of the daily grind. The benefits (PTO, health insurance, etc) offered seem average to the industry. Policies and procedures are outdated and hard to find. It would be awesome to have a soda fountain machine that was free.

    Advice to Management

    Brian and his management team are some of the best leaders for which I have ever worked. They care about individuals at the bank and are very approachable. This is a core culture builder and a key factor in the bank's success. Keep looking for opportunities to improve and move the bank forward!

    I have been working at nbkc bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    When I researched the company to come here, I was skeptical from all of the good reviews I had read. I wondered what the catch was. I have been here for a month, and even though it is a relatively short time so far, the atmosphere and culture is so welcoming and encouraging. You are encouraged to work hard and play hard. nbkc gives us plenty of extracurricular options to immerse ourselves in and grow this culture. You...

    nbkc truly cares about their employees, and they offer incredible benefits to prove it. I have the opportunity to pave my own path and get to make an impact in my role everyday. Best of all the leadership team values fresh perspectives and is always up for looking at things through a different lens...this approach fosters innovation across departments.

    Pros

    Efficient hiring/interview process Best pre-boarding of new employee I've ever experienced 1st time I've ever received a welcome email with an agenda for the first day 1st time I've ever received a welcome gift delivered to my door the week before start date-nice swag! Great on-sight amenities-work out room, putting green, arcade games, break rooms on each floor. Quality benefit package Nice people!

    Cons

    I'm only a couple of days into my employment, but this isn't my first rodeo so to speak, so impressed with everything. I will come back in a month after I've had a little time on the job, might have something to say in this section then.

    The Culture is like nothing else super laid back and everyone is very friendly Procedures are current and made it easy for a new employee to come in and do a job effectively A very social company with onsite happy hours and team functions. Pay is excellent 5 and 10 year sabbaticals are given On site gym with yoga classes and personal trainers available

    Pros

    Nice building and office space.

    Cons

    Communication needs improvement. Every time you turn around there is re-structure. Makes it seem like management doesn’t know what their doing especially when you don’t know why the change were made. Several good people have left in the last year or two. The only activities for employees seem to be alcohol related.

    Advice to Management

    Hire a management team that has banking experience or can at least communicate.

    I would like to hear more of your thoughts regarding communication. Also, I'm sorry you feel the only activities are alcohol related - that certainly is not the intent and events like corporate challenge, the speaker series, and many of the clubs would hopefully provide that setting. ...

    Pros

    It's not like working at a bank other than the compulsory learning tasks required for compliance. Otherwise, it's mostly like working at a technology company. I came from a background in high growth startups and the pace of my job and the pace of change internally is quite similar. If you want to be somewhere that will shift and grow as the broader financial industry shifts and grows then it's a great place to be....

    The only slightly old school aspect is the PTO policy. It's somewhat rigid, but otherwise, the benefit mix and etc. are all great.

    Still trying to find them.... Typically when you hear about all of the great things about working for a company you have this mentality of "waiting for the shoe to drop" but that really has not been the case with NBKC. Everything that I was told has come to pass so far!
