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

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time

ProsBenefits 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.

ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementGreat 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.

A Great Team

Banker (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on the client experience and streamline processes to provide better service

Would recommend

Manager (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

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-Outdated technology.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 Senior ManagementMake 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.

Mangers that want you to excell

Teller III (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

ProsMangers 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)

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThere 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
