    Pros

    Many individuals really committed and so willing to help. Really liked the half day Friday's when you could use them.

    Cons

    The company is political. Be careful how you are judged. Leadership reviews too many decisions which takes away your confidence as a professional. Many people Are stuck in their old ways and don't want to try new things.

    Advice to Management

    Do something about the people who are stuck in their old ways even if they have been there forever. New ideas are good. Don't keep using your favorites for projects. HR needs to be more welcoming and less intimidating.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule Great cafeteria and candy store Bonus for hourly workers

    Cons

    Only friends of management are promoted Harassment is tolerated Slow to change technology/software Lay off workers to hire Director, etc in newly created positions Cliques are the norm

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be on a list of great places to work, study the culture of those companies that have made the list. Look at the changes made by employees to better themselves and put them in appropriate positions. Technology is changing fast and the company must keep up the pace.

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the people I work with. The benefits are good with exceptions to the medical care cost.

    Cons

    The PFP effects the company morale and we are the only office that has it. People with experience and skills have left the company and sometimes the training can be a bit confusing. I wish that there we more career advancement opportunities. I enjoy the management team, but sometimes it feels like we are being micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    I would give advice to focus on management training and more job opportunities. Also to update our systems.

    Pros

    Paycheck. If it weren't for 1/2 day Friday, most wouldn't work here.

    Cons

    How many consultants does it take to do the CIO's job? The CIO wouldn't know I work for him. He is so pompous, he doesn't know anyone else exists. He can't make a decision to move us forward, but he can suck up to the CEO. You're the CIO of a tiny company = Director in any Fortune 500.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the people who work for you, we work hard to keep problems off your desk.

    Pros

    37.5 hour work week 1/2 day on Fridays Great dining room with healthy food offerings On premise fitness club Employees Beautiful atrium

    Cons

    Too many unproductive meetings Some SR. Management/Co-worker cliques SR. Management and SR. HR Staff rarely say hello in passing Very hard to get an exceeds in any category of your performance plan in some departments which impacts yearly increases No offering of self development seminars or workshops for employees not in a management position Lay off workers but always announcing new Sr. Management positions Lay off workers in departments or divisions and then promote others Shifting of job responsibilities regardless whether or not that's an employee's strength or they have the time Unprofessional behavior of some Managemement and some Sr. Management positions Only certain individuals are allowed to work out of their home

    Advice to Management

    Offer seminars and workshops for self development to all employees on an ongoing basis Engage with all employees and try to get to know them Stop the cliques, as it's very noticable to all Allow performance plans to truly reflect the work/job being done Assess employees skills & strengths prior to shifting responsibilities Limit Sr. Management positions Sr. Management should really take an unbiased look at other Sr. Managers that report to them

    Pros

    Trustmark is a great company to work for that cares about their employees' health and wellness. They stress work life balance by having 1/2 day Fridays, having an on-site gym with group classes offered before and after work as well as during lunch and having a cafeteria that serves healthy food that is very economical - a lot of the cost is subsidized by Trustmark. I love the culture and the people I work with, including management are truly a team and want everyone to succeed.

    Cons

    I don't have anything negative to say other than I wish I had found this company earlier in my career!
