    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the client experience and streamline processes to provide better service

    Cons

    pushy towards sales, follow portal system for calls, lots of calls trained in various queues,

    It should be more diverse, vs only hispanics in the call center.

    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    -Worst benefits around -Outdated technology.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 Management

    Make 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.

    Pros

    Mangers that support their staff and work with them to help them better themselves and get further in their carrerrs. The salary is also very competitive and Tellers typically get paid more at Amegy than they would at other banks (even the big banks)

    Cons

    Some of the Managers can be petty and try to screw over other branches in order to help their branch out.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more of a united front and less silly bickering among the Branch Managers and Assistant Managers. While we have branches that all have different goals we all work for the same company and should work together not against each other.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    It is a very conservative company, family oriented bank and you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    There's not much growth and promotion within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to think on your feet and out of the box. If you don't know, don't be afraid to ask questions.

    Pros

    The work is incredible simple especially if you have had prior banking experience.

    Cons

    No management organization No room for growth If you decide to go back to school they will teriminate you No training whatsoever Very few people actually know how to use the operating systems

    Advice to Management

    District managers please organize your branches and enforce attendence policy on managners. Do not overfavor some managers and let them get away with murder.
