    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Update your payscales to match the market. Promote quality candidates more, not the brown nosers.

    Pretty good regional bank

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Not a bad work environment. Co-workers are good.

    Cons

    I feel like the bank is behind its competitors (with products, technology, etc). Mediocre compensation. With my experience, HR and recruiting departments did not meet expectations. All of these things lead to a generally high employee turnover across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More innovation, or just keeping up with other banks at the retail level

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. You can get full time benefits at just 20hrs/week. Training is extensive. Pretty well compensated for sales, + sales competitions are good.

    Cons

    It's hard to sell Zion's products (morally and as a salesman), because most of the banking industry is way ahead of them. Banking software is, literally, from the late 90's, and very slow. Management is unsupportive, usually nice people but they don't show their appreciation for tellers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees. Don't be afraid to reduce micromanagement and spread out responsibilities. Stick around with your employees; don't leave at 3-3:30 while your employees are there until 6:30.

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customer service focused. Quite a bit of leniency with upselling products, rather than being a drill sergeant like Wells Fargo. Good training program. Really friendly people.

    Cons

    Way behind the times as far as technology and processes go. Can be a little frustrating at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more input from your branch personnel and use their feedback.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Zions Banks is a great place for it's people to build lasting business partnerships. The organization is a good place for "corporate entrepreneurs". Zions Bank "feels" like a community bank, but has most of the resources of a larger institution.

    Cons

    Too often managers are brought in from the outside and tend to be out of touch with the organization's culture and capabilities. Technology is really behind the times. The structure of Zions Bancorporation as "A Collection of Great Banks", running somewhat autonomously makes for much innefficiency. The back office help in Salt Lake City is not always the most helpful and is out of touch with the market place and needs of rural clients/employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and implement the advice of the front-line employees.

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great training programs for new hires and plenty of training opportunities.
    Large banking presence in the State of Utah.
    Many opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Every month there's a new idea the bank is pushing out that will be forgotten within a year.
    Base pay is low compared to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale back on the harebrained ideas and focus more on the basics of retail banking.

    Pros

    Enjoy my job very much and the atmosphere is very good.

    Cons

    Their health care benefits are one of the worst in any industry. They are definitely the worst our family has ever had. We are extremely shocked by this and very disappointed.
