    Little room for growth

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsMost people are friendly and respect each other. The company tried not to hire new employees so there is little chance that they will lay off a person if they are no longer needed. They will move an employee somewhere whenever possible. There is plenty of training for retail employees. Management is willing to listen and consider employee feedback. There is a new employee review system that will take effect pretty soon.

    ConsIf you are one of the many employees that was not a banker/finance major, you have little room for personal growth or advancement. There is little trust between management and employees at the corporate and back office level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeleive in your employees more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Company that promote.s work/life balance and very keen in the community.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are okay, the work is interesting with advancement opportunities in Business Banking. Amazing leaders that walk their talk. I see myself learning lots of processes for lending opportunities. Really excited to be a part of the Amegy Bank team.

    ConsCompany promotes working with internal partners that are experts at what they do. This is a really good concept if partners work well together. If one has not worked in this type on intense partnership internally, it could be an adjustment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job with a positive environment and being available to your teams for their feedback. The only one thing that I can think of is to bridge the gap internally with partners and this could empower each and every employee to keep clients in the center and run with what needs to be done for them without worrying about anything else.

    A Great Team

    Banker (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsThe people who work at Amegy make it a great place to work. Management consistently hires friendly, well-qualifed bankers who are a good fit and work together as a team. Very nice work/life balance, competitive compensation and supportive managers. When I first came to work here I received several emails from all over the company from people who told me they love coming to work everyday. I was a little skeptical... but that's been my experience, too.

    ConsAntiquated systems and more time-consuming processes compared to other banks - though they are actively working to improve this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the client experience and streamline processes to provide better service

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Would recommend

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    Pros-Good bank with positive reputation in the commmunity
    -Good work/life balance
    -Better than average bank products
    -Trustworthy senior management
    -Competitive salary (for new hires)
    -Genuine interest to promote from within and develop employees
    -Good training programs

    Cons-Worst benefits around
    -Outdated technology. MS-Dos was the most efficient banker tool and the systems frequently break
    -Small, capped incentive programs

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake the benefits affordable or worthwhile to have. In my opinion, people in an entry level spot (tellers or backoffice) cannot possibly afford these services.

    Try to take care of the employees you are trying to develop. When employees get promoted (let alone multiple times), a standard 5% increase generally puts them well below market salary and can lead to multiple subordinates making more money than their boss. This compensation plan makes it difficult to retain top talent because they can make significantly more money by going to a competitor for a similar position.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
