    Pros

    They offer benefits, 401k, and esop stock after 5 yrs. Good at working with your schedule needs for family stuff.

    Cons

    High turn over rate. The retail position requires lots of multitasking. Your pulled in so many directions and still required to make sales goals. High stress job.

    Advice to Management

    Look for talent internally to promote, rather than hiring from outside sources.

    Pros

    The only pros that I can come up with when thinking about MidSouth Bank would be the customers that I helped.

    Cons

    Major cons: there is lack of communication, slim to no room for advancement, unrealistic sales quotas to meet, poor management, poor products and hidden fees

    Pros

    It is a community bank. The people who work there are generally nice. The other regular employees are all very helpful to one another. If you ever have a problem, you can call anyone to help and they will. The support among peers is wonderful. They really want everyone to succeed.

    Cons

    Senior management is all wrapped up in their titles rather than helping their employees and the bank. The bank also tends to hire from not only outside the bank, but also from out of the area. The senior management is not familiar with how things work in the South and this market. Many of them quote how things are done in New York or Chicago, when that is nothing like the rural South which MidSouth serves.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within rather than from outside the bank. Quit hiring people from outside the company when others are qualified.
