    Sweatshop with weird, manipulative management. High turnover with certain members of the management, worrying.

    Pros

    Paycheck, experience with new technologies.

    Cons

    Lack of communication with senior management and lack of avenues for future growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep abreast of what is going on within the ranks and keep track of managers with high turnovers, they are a huge flag.

    Does Not Pay Competitively

    Current Employee - Relationship Manager  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Relationship Manager in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Looks great from the outside in.

    Cons

    Does not pay market salary. Everyone who enters at the same time are pushed along at the same pace. Your advancement is a secret. they do not let you know what you will be able to make. For a company the does not like uncertainty from their customers they do a really bad job of letting people know what their potential is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees market salraies so they can reduce turnover.

    Work in Houston only

    Pros

    Senior management in Houston is very responsive and does a great job of communicating with all employees. Great brand in Houston, some of the best talent in the city can be found there.

    Cons

    I worked in SA not Houston. The problem is SA leadership wants to be like Chase bank. They are ignoring the middle market and focusing on large corporate accounts. Only choice for health care coverage is a high deductible plan. My wife has a PPO that has better benefits and costs the same as Amegy's high deductible plan. The only real opportunity for advancement is in Houston.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop what you are doing in SA, just do what Houston did. You are missing out on a large potential client base by just focusing on the large corp. accounts. Take a second look at your retail leadership in SA.

    Pros

    Very talented group of people
    Company does seem to care about what employees think
    Encourages feedback from employees
    Local name recognition

    Cons

    Poor salary
    Could have better benefits
    Not all departments have the same level of training
    Bais towards those in the Credit Analyst Program

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership is what really makes this a great place to work. They do a great job of communicating to the company regardless of whether it is a critical change to the organization or whether it is just a note of thanks. As I mentioned before, they do take employee feedback seriously and try to take their opinions into consideration.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    A personable Texas corporation that cares about its employees. Not a lot of room for growth though. Caring management though.

    Cons

    Very, very small raises, regardless of how long you've been with the company. Extremely poor health benefits with high deductibles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees for their dedication and length of service by giving them raises, and don't hire new employees on at higher salaries.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get both sides of the story before making a decision.

    Personal Banker

    Current Employee - Personal Banker
    Current Employee - Personal Banker

    Pros

    A solid company which generally seems to have integrity for the most part. Has local values that the customers can identify with.

    Cons

    The goals can be unrealistic and there isn't much communication from the top to the bottom. Horrible benefits. Other than that, there isn't a whole lot of cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees more and find other ways to cut costs. There is plenty of fat to be trimmed elsewhere other than employee bonuses or other compensation.
