Pros

Pinnacle understands that having a stake in the company motivates the employees. It is a lesson that a lot of companies need to learn. They retain their people because they give them what they want. Money. However, bonuses are dependent on the profitability of the company. Everyone has to pull their weight to achieve the required goals for bonus payout.

They only hire experienced people, with a few exceptions. The non-banking back office staff are not always experienced when compared to the bank tellers, loan officers, investment brokers, etc. By hiring experienced people, you ensure the customer is taken care of appropriately. This is a big reason they are so successful.

The CEO and quite a few other senior executives are approachable and friendly. They don't treat even the lowest paid employee as if they are beneath them. This is a breath of fresh air when compared to a lot of the executives at other companies within Nashville.

Cons

You will work more than 40 hours a week for most positions. Certain sections run lean. Pinnacle does not hire strangers. Everyone at the company, outside of employees acquired through acquisitions, is known by someone already within the company. This keeps them from hiring "surprises", but it hurts them when they need to fill specific positions within IT or other support entities. Politics will come into play when dealing with certain executives and managers, but that is typical of most companies.

Advice to Management

    Great people to work with. I had an excellent team that I was part of. All my co-workers on other teams were great as well.

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Pinnacle Financial Partners full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are absolutely none to speak of.

    Cons

    Very biased towards people of color. They baby them because they are afraid to step up and risk being sued. You can't get promoted PERIOD. you always stay in the role your hired for.

    Advice to Management

    More like advice to the CEO. Some of your branch managers are not what they seem. Instead of hiring folks through referrals you should consider those doing the referring. Sorry is referring sorry.
