I have been working at Hancock Holding full-time for less than a year

Pros

Company with stability, integrity, work -life balance, on Forbes 100 most trusted companies, options for moving up and laterally, diverse culture; management challenges you to constantly improve

Cons

Still in a post merger hangover with the org chart changing frequently and old and new processes running simultaneously; some locations have old facilities with old bathrooms, offices are segregated rather than open planned; Many locations and two headquarters, which can present logistic difficulties, depending on your job function.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should back the emphasis on personal accountability and rewarding people based on merit through a mandatory and consistent goal setting process across the company.

    Pros

    Geographic coverage of one of the highest growth markets for the next ten years.

    Cons

    Inexperienced management team at Hancock, relying on outside consultants to guide strategic movements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust internal staff, and hire other internal experts to help guide the company, stop relying on outside consultants. Your employees feel very un-empowered due to your extensive use of outside consultants.

    I worked at Hancock Holding

    Pros

    Stability. the bank has been around for a while and has a sound business model. Very friendly atmosphere. They do an excellent job in their role as a community bank and have a very good reputation in Louisiana and Mississippi. Their community bankers and commercial lenders are very involved in the community (particularly in organizations like Kiwanis and Rotary). For a community bank, Hancock is very well-capitalized. Working conditions are good. Everyone I knew in various MS and LA locations were gone by 5 or 6 everyday (speaking of corporate offices, not retail branches)

    Cons

    It's typical of a lot of companies with southern influences. "Good ole boy" managerial structure which makes advancement difficult for most. This might have been the case in my dept, but it is generally frowned upon to take time off that is given to you. In my dept, you were expected to be there between 8 and 5 and very little flexibility is given. Opportunities for internal advancement are generally given to those who "know people".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make advancement and internal hiring a little more transparent. A sure fire way to bleed off talent is to turn ones job into a dead end.
