    Upper management favors loan officers, no organization, no consistency, poor management and poor or no training. Remote option is unrealistic and is accommodated to who they want. The level of disrespect and communication is awful and management is aware but doesn’t do anything.

    I worked at Hancock Whitney Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Slow environment allows more personal interactions with clients.

    Cons

    Management is looking out for their best interests. In a scenario where the regional operations director in Florida promised both employees involved in this particular scenario they would not "get in trouble, or even get written up", they decided to come back one month later and fire the employees, once they realized that there was more involved with their managers. The managers threatened the employees job by abiding by policy previously because it "inconvenienced them", creating a hostile work environment by altering employees perceptions of other employees telling me that "[this employee] will turn you into HR for anything", stating and thereby admitting there is an environment of retaliation in this company for raising concerns to HR. The managers would consistently violate the procedures on cash audits, not perform them as "surprise cash audits" like they are supposed to, but planning them verbally and openly in the office in front of all the other employees, major cash handling violations by leaving opportunities for assets of the company to go missing by planning their audits. This was done for the manager that was in control of their money and also the vault teller as well. It is not a secure environment with the current managers. Employees are afraid to raise any concerns or state what they see because of previous and current retaliation against the employees, making it appear like it's a different reason for letting the employee go.
