What our Employees say about Our Total Rewards

“I love working for this company and I think they work hard to prove that the employees are their best asset.”

“Overall I am so happy to work for Sovereign, this is the best job I have ever had. They consider our well being, health, education, and our personal commitments. When I see myself 10-20 years down the road I still see myself working for this company.”

“It's nice to work for an organization that doesn't make you feel like you're just another number. The drive and dedication to succeed shown by the Executives and Managers makes you want to be a part of the success. The expertise, open communication, the programs to promote a good work/life balance and the work environment makes it easy to come to work everyday”

“This is one of the best jobs I have ever had throughout my career. I am growing personally and professionally in a comfortable and healthy environment.”

“This company is very good to work for - there is ongoing training & development and opportunities to voice my opinions at meetings. Because this company is small, everyone is close-knit and like family. I like the benefits plan and the Wellness Committee helps to keep everyone healthy and active. The addition of the Flex days also helps to maintain that work-life-balance. I am happy working here.”
