Pinnacle Financial Partners is still one of 10 Best Places to Work in Chattanooga, as announced by EDGE magazine and Chattanooga News-Free Press. It is the third year in a row that the firm has appeared on the list.

“Our associates make an intentional effort to create a truly great work environment for one another, and that’s why we consistently earn recognitions like this across out footprint,” said Ryan Murphy, Pinnacle’s area manager in Chattanooga. “We love working here because of our vision, our values, our leaders and each other. We are all empowered with the freedom to be creative in how we serve each other and our clients. That’s a level of trust that makes us happy us to carry out the values Pinnacle was built on and do so enthusiastically.”

To make this list, local employers and their associates had to work through a comprehensive survey process run by the Best Companies Group.

While Pinnacle does not have access to the Best Companies Group survey results, Chattanooga associates gave consistent feedback on the company’s annual anonymous survey:

“The firm makes it a priority to hire experienced and knowledgeable employees and gives them the room to do their jobs without being micro-managed.”

“The firm spends a great deal of time and effort to ensure that associate feel welcome, appreciated and empowered. There is no doubt that the firm cares about the associates and does so with actions in addition to words.”

“The leadership in Chattanooga is wonderful. It’s very evident that they care for each of us, our families and our careers.”

“It truly feels like home. I have only been here a year, but everyone I have met has welcomed me with open arms. I have always felt like part of the team.”

“We have a very experienced team of associates, and this allows the firm to provide each market the flexibility to meet the demands of our clients in a decentralized manner, which is far different from our regional and super-regional competitors. Pinnacle has all the resources of a big bank, but we operate like a community bank. Clients and associates love it!”

Pinnacle has won dozens of national and local workplace awards and has been recognized in nearly every market it serves. The firm was ranked No. 28 on the list of America’s 100 Best Companies to Work For and was named as one of the country’s top 10 Best Banks to Work For by American Banker, as well as a top six Best Workplace for both Women and Millennials.
