    Good Company but personal growth is limited

    Assistant Vice President (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGood work environment, no micro managing

    ConsNot enough career advancement opportunities

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

     

    Not that bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBanking experience and free parking downtown. Most of the people are very nice.

    ConsPay raises are very small, health insurance deductibles are high, dental insurance is not insurance but a reimbursement plan that you must pay out of pocket 1st.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better insurance plans and show your employees you appreciate them and their hard work by giving better raises.

    Great company to work for.

    Bank Teller (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe Managers are great with their employers and make it a fun environment to work in. I enjoyed my time working here.

    ConsSelling can sometimes be difficult especially in motor bank, and they tend to push you on selling.

    Would recommend

    Manager (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    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    -Outdated technology.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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mangers that want you to excell

    Teller III (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    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.

    Good place to start a career in banking

    Vice President (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsLife / work balance is great, people are easy to work with, lots of opportunities for growing your professional network and starting a banking career.

    ConsOwned by Zions Bancorporation which slows down Amegy. No real synergies from Zions' footprint, pretty much a stand alone separate entity.

    A place where you can expand your banking knowledge.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

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

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

    considerably better than other places but very political

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Prosthe pay alone is great along with the benefits is pretty good

    Conspolitical atmosphere because I wasn't the type to kiss people to get promoted. Other employees can be petty over small issues.

    Advice to Senior Managementget both sides of the story before making a decision.
