Our culture & benefits
Finding the right people and empowering them to deliver excellence.

Today, as one of the nation's 60 largest bank holding companies and a full-service financial services provider with more than 150 years of experience, we're still focused on building our company one relationship at a time. But building relationships takes patience and commitment, and it requires a special kind of employee. Someone who's willing to consistently invest themselves not only in the interests of our customers, but in the greater good of our community.

That's why our entire corporate culture is built around finding the right people and empowering them to deliver excellence. We call it FIRSTPOWER, and it permeates every aspect of our competitive strategy to our community involvement. FIRSTPOWER is the attitude of embracing candor, change, inclusion and teamwork that every employee brings to the job each day.

It is evident in the way our people consistently embrace our shared values and vision for the future as well as the priority we have placed on diversity and inclusion.

The result is a work environment that fosters innovation, teamwork, customer advocacy and a clear understanding of how the contributions of each employee are woven together to define the success of the organization.


Our benefits

At First Tennessee, we understand that finding the best people is nothing more than a noble – and unattainable – goal if we are not committed to rewarding them with a competitive compensation package. That's why we take our benefits very seriously and why we created a Total Compensation package that touches every aspect of an employee's life from finances to family life and from career development to healthcare.
