    I have been working at BancorpSouth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    BancorpSouth offers great benefits (medical, vision, and dental insurance and time off, including personal days) and I have many great Coworkers!

    Cons

    The focus is on efficiency, which is prudent. HOWEVER, in the focus .... Mgmt has lost sight of the real assets of the company, THE EMPLOYEES! Pay is not adequately given as it's basically based on popularity OR getting the correct salary when you are hired. Promotions are not given/allowed no matter the quality of consistent work produced. BancorpSouth is a good beginners job but not rewarding for long term career mined individuals. Too many old and antiquated systems and company is not willing to spend money to get systems up to date. This alone causes much frustration!

    Mgmt does not want supervisors to rate employees over a 3 star (out of 5 being the best) on annual reviews. Many have stated that if an employee is rated a 4 or 5, they shouldn't be working at BancorpSouth! This mentality speaks volumes of where the company is headed.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the focus and work on employee retention. Allow the employees to excel .... many are smarter and more professional than supervisors and members of management!!!! I hope you realize that you are letting the best of the best walk out of your doors.

    I have been working at BancorpSouth full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Secure job with relatively predictable schedule and generally good people. Just do not expect any understandable career track. If you need consistent work to pay the bills or cover insurance this could be a great job.

    Cons

    No innovation and little opportunity to be noticed outside of a management's inner circle

    Advice to Management

    Make structural changes that give employees a realistic way to document work or exceed expectations.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere
    Supervisor truly cares
    Good amount of vacation and sick time

    Cons

    Outdated systems
    Pay is lacking
    CEO is all about cutting expenses any way he can, which has eliminated a lot of jobs and put a ton more work in those of us that have stayed
    The annual raises are a joke, basically nothing

    Advice to Management

    If you want to retain good employees, pay them like you value them; especially when you're asking everyone to do double or triple the work that they used to.
