    Pros

    - Great Benefits
    - Competitive work environment
    - Family atmosphere in the work place

    Cons

    - Technology is dated and the bank has been slow to react.
    - Top management has made changes without giving employee's notice ahead of time

    Advice to Management

    Be more forthright with coming changes to budgets and ability to earn incentives. Last minute changes do nothing but kill morale.

    Pros

    Great company to work for. At Bancorpsouth you get a sense that the company really does care for you as an employee and it has been a meaningful learning experience as my first job out of college.

    Cons

    Lack of challenge and advancement at current position.

    Advice to Management

    When an employee shows initiative and makes it known that they are ready to advance to a position where they could be more of an asset to the company, show more enthusiasm for helping them to achieve that goal.

    Pros

    I am a LONG TERM employee of BancorpSouth. We have seen many changes under the direction of a NEW CEO. Everyone has been struggling to perform under new leadership but continuously misreads the true intentions of our new leader. However, as we persevere through the transition, I believe that we are at the onset of breeding a MORE positive culture, which has been desperately needed. BancorpSouth Bank is going to be even better as a result of POSITIVE LEADERSHIP!!

    Cons

    Management needs to stop misreading intentions by striving to "FIRST listen to understand" before filtering WRONG information down to the masses.

    Advice to Management

    First, listen to understand before filtering WRONG information down to the masses.

    Pros

    Local Branch Staff are like family and treat their customer as such making it enjoyable at the branch level.

    Cons

    Here is a list of Cons: Short Staffed, New CEO, New Changes To Policy Everyday Making It Hard To Adapt Much Less Understand These Changes. Promising Compensation And Not Delivering.

    Advice to Management

    I can relate to making cutbacks to save money on budgets and I agree as well as understand, but I would take a harder look at your branches to see if the staff can handle the heavy and often additional work load that is added.
