    No integrity, forgot who keeps them in business: the employees

    Social Media Administrator (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsBankers hours/holidays were awesome. Vacation pay was good. Does a lot for the community. Interest rates and other products given to employees are fantastic.

    Bosses will go to bat for you... if you're in their clique.

    ConsThe insurance choices here are reprehensible unless you're single.

    The marketing department went from awesome to horrid a few months ago. New leaders are very nepotistic and view friendships as more important than actual skill in doing the job. IF you're not on the boss' good side, or they plain don't like you, they will find even the littlest thing to "get" you on, and then trump it up.

    Basically, communication between upper and middle management is lacking terribly.

    While HR is an advocate for employees generally, if you're labeled as someone that deserves to be fired, no one will hear your side of the story. No investigations will happen to see if allegations are true. They just are.

    Don't make any promises — written or verbal. If a manager wants to get rid of you, those promises can be dissolved quickly, even if they're written down. Integrity doesn't matter here.

    For a company who says, "We Haven't Forgotten Who Keeps Us In Business", they sure treat their employees — who are every bit as important in this business as the customers — terribly.

    My advice if you're looking in this company: any other department is probably worth working for at Zions... maybe. But steer clear of the marketing department.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your "underlings". Don't trust your managers at their word. Give both people their sides of the story. Have integrity — if you promise something, make it happen. Stick up for your talented employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Ethics and integrity do not abound

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsYou can certainly expect little change in some areas - enjoy banker's hours, better interest rates for employee bank accounts.

    ConsTerrible insurance.

     Marketing department is full of dishonesty and completely lacks integrity. If you are a trusting person who assumes others are honest and that hard-work will turn into a stable job or even a promotion, you will get caught off guard for sure. The department is extremely divided with a high degree of back-biting. The EVP is a hands-off manager, and does not handle confrontation, and ignores wrong-doing. There are some excellent employees, but unfortunately, they either leave, get fired on false grounds, or are afraid to speak up for change for fear of also being weeded out.

    Also, it is an incredibly difficult place to come into. The department has multiple cliques. If you are an outsider, you are doomed.

    Information which is vital to job-roles is not shared openly.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest with your employees. Executive management needs to address rogue employees who act outside of recommended plans as well as take action when dishonesty occurs. Break up the divide, and steer away from the nepotism.

    ProsTechnology was interesting, if management ever let you make decisions it would have been better.

    ConsBenefits, especially Medical have to be the worst in the state. Forced into a high cost HSA plan. Only option they have. Switched jobs and saved over $7000 on Medical in the first year.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFix the Medical benefits. Let your technical people make decisions and don't make them on your own based on what the technical salesmen tell you that you need.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
