    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people employed there that are willing to share knowledge and experiences and not be threatened that a individual will steal their job. Unfortunately, those individual are sparse throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, very much run by and still practices the "good ol' boy system" Extremely poor pay with poor benefits to match

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire the good ol' boys and modernize the company into the 21st century. Tenure does automatically suggest quality. Sometimes a tenured individual can simply be taking up valuable space, contributing nothing great, hindering another valuable asset in the form of an employee.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation

    Pros

    You get 2 weeks vacation. Which is more than most other places right off the bat. I was able to do a lot of school work also. But that's about it.

    Cons

    The managers suck! They have no management skills whatsoever. If you give them an suggestion or express concern about a fellow employee, they automatically go into defensive mode and won't listen to what you are saying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. Not everything is a fight. You are not getting attacked when we tell you something. So grow up and accept that suggestions given to you.

    Keep abreast of what is going on within the ranks and keep track of managers with high turnovers, they are a huge flag.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Houston, TX

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most 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.

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

    Beleive in your employees more.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation

    Pros

    A personable Texas corporation that cares about its employees. Not a lot of room for growth though. Caring management though.

    Cons

    Very, very small raises, regardless of how long you've been with the company. Extremely poor health benefits with high deductibles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees for their dedication and length of service by giving them raises, and don't hire new employees on at higher salaries.
