    Pros

    Great place to get good experience in banking and other experience as a stepping stone on a solid career path

    Cons

    Promotion for most tellers beyond head teller positions is near impossible for most

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more opportunities for advancement, knowledge, and experience to lower level employees outside of being moving into another teller position.

    I have been working at BancorpSouth full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company values are close to my own personal values. There is an open door policy, and management actively seeks input from all employees. Customer focused, not just numbers driven. BancorpSouth is also very community oriented. They frequently challenge other banks to participate in fund raisers designed to boost community projects and non profit organizations who help those who are less fortunate.

    Cons

    Distance between Locations for many employees force a long commute.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose branch managers who have at least a few years of management experience, Sometimes an inexperienced Manager can make the branch less efficient, especially when the employees are well seasoned.

    Current Employee - Branch Manager in Tupelo, MS

    I have been working at BancorpSouth full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at BancorpSouth full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Secure job with relatively predictable schedule and generally good people. Just do not expect any understandable career track. If you need consistent work to pay the bills or cover insurance this could be a great job.

    Cons

    No innovation and little opportunity to be noticed outside of a management's inner circle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make structural changes that give employees a realistic way to document work or exceed expectations.

    Pros

    Great benefits, vacation and sick time. Good work environment and great people to work with

    Cons

    It is much easier to advance in the company if you are a man. Long-term employees are not treated as well as they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the people who have worked so hard to make the company a success. Promote from within instead of just the "good old boys".
