Pinnacle Is the No. 6 Best Bank to Work for in the Nation

The firm is one of the only banks of its size on the list

Pinnacle Financial Partners is one of the nation’s Best Banks to Work For, having earned the No. 6 spot overall on the annual list compiled by American Banker magazine and Best Companies Group. This ranking is up three spots from No. 9 in 2021.

No other bank in the top 50 comes close to Pinnacle in terms of asset size and number of associates. Among the top 10, Pinnacle is the only bank with more than $11 billion in assets, and the closest competitor has just a third of the number of associates, showing that even as the firm has grown, its culture remains unchanged. This is Pinnacle’s 10th year to appear on the list, having been ranked ever since the program started in 2013.

“If you fill your company with great people, the rest is easy,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “Even with the rapid growth we’ve experienced, we have maintained the same culture we started with 22 years ago. Looking at this list, it’s clear that no other bank operating at this scale can match our culture. That’s thanks to our people, every associate who embraces and amplifies what makes Pinnacle different. They love working here and our clients love banking here because we haven’t changed our central philosophy since day one: People matter, and everyone deserves a great place to work and to do business.”

Pinnacle ranks in the top 10 on this list in both 2020 and 2021, at No. 8 and No. 9, respectively. In prior years, Pinnacle has ranked No. 1 for its category (in 2013), No. 2 overall (in 2014), No. 3 (in 2015) and No. 6 (in 2016 and 2017) on this list. In 2018 and 2019, the firm ranked in the top 20.

To be eligible for the Best Banks to Work For list, firms must have at least 50 employees working in the United States and be commercial or retail banks, or the commercial or retail banking units of diversified financial services companies.

Selection is a two-step process. First, participating banks are evaluated on their workplace practices and policies. Second, employees are surveyed to assess their experiences in and attitudes about the workplace. Combined scores determine the final ranking.
