    I worked at Zions Bank full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. CEO/President is wonderful and very community-oriented. Family oriented. Highly encouraged to volunteer and help in community. CRA isn't "lip service", it is part of the culture.

    Cons

    Moves very slow with IT projects and approvals. Highly conservative with the interpretation of banking regulations that stifles innovation. Some people managing vendors treat vendors like servants not partners.

    Advice to Management

    Losing some great tech and banking people to other companies. Retain the great talent. Technology needs to not just be equal to competitors, need to be ahead.

    I have been working at Zions Bank as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Development of job searching skills. Learn bank operations from inside the bank. Claim high placement rates of former interns due to extensive HR/Recruiter contacts in the area.

    Cons

    If you aren't assigned to the right group within the bank, you won't have anything to do but "shadow" others as they do their jobs. Boss is always locked away in their office with minimal interaction. Could do more to help interns land the jobs that are available.

    Advice to Management

    Actually reach out to internal/external recruiters on behalf of the interns to help them land interviews. Ensure that placements will actually prepare interns for work at the bank or elsewhere, not just busy work that employees are too busy to worry about.

    Pros

    - Great people - Great training - Great Benefits - Great pay rate for the Kanab Area

    Cons

    It is a call center, you should like being constantly on the phone, and it requires a thick skin.

    Advice to Management

    The only suggestion I would make is keep up the good work.

    Pros

    With Peak Time you get the chance to work at many different branches of Zions and are able to meet many great bank employees.

    Cons

    Some of the branches aren't run as efficiently as others and the management doesn't seem to like having Peak Time employees at their branches.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't always be possible, but if the Peak Time employees could have a say in which branches they went to and which they didn't shifts could be less stressful.

    Pros

    Very stable company. at no point have I ever felt like I was going to be laid off. Very involved witht he community

    Cons

    Cares more about people having degrees instead of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people who have the experience that will make them successful instead of hiring people just because they have their degree.
