    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Relative sensitivity to work-life balance.

    Cons

    Definitely not a place to work if you're a "go-getter", incredibly bad benefits, and neither promotions nor bonuses are merit based. All relationship based bank. Which means very little diversity beyond customer service and teller roles.

    Values used to be strong.... times changed after Zions bought them.
    Benefits are for disasters... high deductible only

    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.

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

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Benefits 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.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

    Great 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.

  11. It was a great place to learn the banking world.

    Pros

    If new to the bank industry, you can learn from Amegy.

    Cons

    Benefits are poor in comparison to other companies of this size

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to employees and stop working them to death.
