    I worked at MidSouth Bancorp (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary is great thank for me making good money but that all Midsouth have to offer period.

    Cons

    Management is a joke. Policy and procedures apply to some not all. Management only interact with employees when they need your help. Tell Rusty Sr.CEO that his managers will close his business. That is a fact!!! Nowe watch God move.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being racist and down grading people that pay your paycheck.

    I have been working at MidSouth Bancorp full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The HR Dept is great! Friendly, professional people, including employees with MidSouth University.

    Cons

    The worst manager I have ever worked for- lacking skills, territorial, and easily intimidated by new talent. The communication between depts. is deplorable and the territorial attitude is absurd. This is not a team but a chaotic egomaniacal mess. Technology is piece milled and outdated. Policies and procedures are inconsistent,in many times undocumented, and vague. Expectations are subjective and open for wildly different interpretation from day to day. New ideas are treated like a plague- quarantined and censored until employees' spirits are broken. Morale is hideous.

    Advice to Management

    Find another profession- manipulation and intimidation tactics do not reach goals. They ruin company culture and employee's ability to identify as part of a cohesive team.
