    Pros

    Management has been very accommodating with my work schedule. The company has a strong tie to the community.The bank has been around for a long time and is very stable.

    Cons

    Since the merger, management has been in a constant state of flux. While the company seems stable, you never know your place within the company. Many back office functions which are the backbone of the company are treated as necessary evils rather than value added support.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the management structure. Create clearer direction for the company and its individual employees. Back officefunctions need more support from senior management.

    Pros

    Great job for college students who want to enhance their customer service skills and gain minor banking experience. Pay is pretty well compared to other bank competitors.

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth in company as far as commercial banking or wealth management. Get in and get out. Management isn't very responsive to emails from lower level employees.

    Pros

    Their core values run true with my personal values. Stellar customer service is the foundation we are built upon and what I feel sets us apart from our competitors.

    Cons

    After merger with Whitney Bank there is still much division between legacy Hancock employees and legacy Whitney employees in some markets. Still working on getting everyone moving forward together.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the employees asking for more. Look at your customer facing associates and let's start our brainstorming there. It seems management already has gotten this memo and started this mindset for 2015.

    Pros

    I was able to move up fast at first. I went from part time teller to full time teller then a platform. I worked at the main branch at first so I was constantly busy which was good but i was later transfered to a closer branch so I wasn't making such a long commute. The part time tellers make good money but when I went full time they give you less money. I had to fight to get more then the starting pay cause they wanted to pay me the same as some one who had no experience and I had 2 years of experience already. Now that I'm platform I'm still making like 5 dollars less then others in the same position.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the branch I transferred to doesn't really have any management. They never made their goals and the other staff would get away with stuff cause they were friends with the immediate management. I enjoy what I do but I'm the only one with goals so it puts a lot of pressure on me and then I end up doing a teller position too cause they are always short handed so I can never fully focus on my job. I have finally got the branch meeting the goals. And also the policies are always changing and they dont inform us at the branch so we are constantly having to redo things or we look bad in front of the customers cause we say one thing and its another. The good people always get reprimanded or laid off but those who don't do their work stays and gets good pay.

    Advice to Management

    They need to clean out those who don't do their job and pass it on to everyone else. Look at the pay if you want them to stay. Cause if I went somewhere else I could make a lot more money.

    Pros

    I enjoyed my coworkers they were knowledgeable. We had departments that were specialized for the more difficult process

    Cons

    The challenges I faced was that Hancock took over a large commercial bank. They were mainly a consumer bank so it was difficult for me to do my job when small minded people were running the department

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people that do the job. Ask their opinions and see what you can do to make there jobs more efficient
