An Insider's view of Millennium Trust Company

What are some social events your company does?

Our MTC culture is defined by our employees for our employees. The primary aspect of our culture that makes us so unique is our ability to “Celebrate”. From charity events to social gatherings, we provide employees with multiple opportunities to learn more about one another, give back to others and expand our professionals skills!

Rebecca Karnoscak

Senior Human Resources Coordinator

What does your typical day look like?

I collaborate with our internal business users to gather requirements for projects and enhancements. I develop these solutions using both no-code and code methodologies in Salesforce. It's rewarding knowing that we're making life easier for both our internal and external clients through streamlined, automated processes, and shorter turnaround time.

Alec Dorner

IT Business Developer/Analyst

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I started out as a Sales & Marketing Coordinator at MTC in 2013. I’ve since been promoted twice, and asked to lead our MTCulture Team. I test-drove my leadership skills early on by volunteering for opportunities to lead small meetings/projects, join internal and external committees, organize events and workshops. I always welcome a challenge!

Lauren Schulz

AVP, Regional Director, Custody Services

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Throughout the transition to a virtual work environment, I have continued with a “virtual” open door policy. I give visibility into my workload and transparency about my availability through the use of MS teams, email and open dialogue on current and upcoming projects.
