    A great learning experience

    I have been working at Reliance Trust Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you're motivated to succeed, this is one of the best companies I have ever worked for with regard to growth opportunity. It's a small enough firm that you don't disappear, but has a larger company feel. Senior management has made great strides in improving the profitability of the company and is beginning to pass that on to the employees. With regard to the working environment, the location is great, parking is free, and the building has a lot of amenities.

    Cons

    There is still a bit of a disconnect between Executive Management and the associates, but, in all fairness, it is improving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The improvements in morale and employee attitude are beginning to show. Please don't lose the positive momentum you've achieved!

    I worked at Reliance Trust Company full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    All the employees are miserable, so at least there were people to commiserate with

    Cons

    I never felt it was a real business to begin with. Loose rules/policies. A patchwork of departments & resources that didn't have the leadership to work as a team. It struck me as a "pump & dump" scheme - and it pretty much was.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they're as confused as the rest of us, but with much more in-fighting & vitriol. The underlings like me grabbed popcorn & enjoyed the show. So thanks for that? (I guess)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck roughly every two weeks.

    Cons

    Too many to mention...
    Management has ZERO management or people skills.
    "GRUT" work -- all day, every day
    You will be looked at like you're crazy if you actually take your lunch break

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some actual management courses

    Depressing Office Culture

    I worked at Reliance Trust Company as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are none that I can think of.

    Cons

    Leadership is so removed from other employees and have no concept of reality by setting impossible deadlines. Everyone looks depressed coming in on Monday mornings and joyous on Friday evenings. Communication between executives and administrative assistants is terrible.

    Pros

    a steady paycheck
    decent building with dry cleaner and food services avaiable

    Cons

    petty management
    expensive medical benefits
    extensive manual processing of financial transactions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue, by a vowel, or something! Managers are blatantly disrespectful of each other and other employees. There should be no place in a legitimate business for this type of behavior.

    I worked at Reliance Trust Company full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are few nice people to work with in the firm. That's it. Oh, you only do 40 hours/wk, which will be the worst 40hrs/wk of your life.

    Cons

    Extremely low pay. The owners are trying to sell the firm. Management has zero management skill. Expensive medical/dental/vision plans. HR staff don't even use it. No career growth. No 401K matching, no raises in 6+ years. Do NOT trust any of the positive reviews on here. It's highly likely that they are from management to improve the rating. You can probably tell from all the other scathing reviews to figure it out. I mean the company must be so deplorable that many people would leave such negative reviews.

    Small, but growing company, lacking clear direction, but decent potential upside.

    I have been working at Reliance Trust Company full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flat organizational structure - not much red tape to get anything done
    most people that work here are very nice
    Allows some telecommuting

    Cons

    no clear direction - company has grown over time via acquisitions and consists of multiple business units that don't work cohesively together
    Not a great 401(k) match - 1.5% on the first 6% of pay

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    I have been working at Reliance Trust Company full-time

    Pros

    Paycheck, might meet a few other people to make the misery less pain, and you have the weekends and some federal holidays off. A resume space filler. The pay is ok.

    Cons

    Just beware that this is a company most people walk out on without a two weeks notice. The turnover is crazy. I've never seen this many people enter a company and leave in my life. Most of the current employees are either seeking new jobs or are considering quitting and taking a leap on faith. Upper management sucks, don't do squat and parade around like they are big shots. You know it's bad when people clock in ready to go home. Mondays are like a funeral and Fridays are celebrations. Not because you actually celebrate but because you get 2 whole days away from this hellhole!!! They criticize every little detail and then don't ever offer any type of praise. You will feel more mentally exhausted from trying to keep yourself sane. Save yourself and politely decline the offer. I wish I had. Keep looking for companies that will treat you how you derserve to be treated - or at least like a human being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Calm down you are not a big shot on Wall Street you work for rinky dink Reliance Trust. Treat people like they put their pants on one leg at a time like you do. Being polite won't cost you a single dime. Stay out of people business and stop running and telling on your workers and go do some actual work.

    Pros

    Strictly a 40-hr job as they will send you home once you get close to overtime.

    Cons

    No opportunities to grow and training is poor. Worked there for over three years with no raise and lack of annual reviews, and starting salary is very low. Employee morale is extremely low with high turnover, and you will not learn a whole lot while on the job.
