Current Employee - Manager in Houston, TX

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (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-Outdated technology.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 ManagementAdvice

Make 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.

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

    Pros

    Mangers 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)

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There 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.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people employed there that are willing to share knowledge and experiences and not be threatened that a individual will steal their job. Unfortunately, those individual are sparse throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, very much run by and still practices the "good ol' boy system" Extremely poor pay with poor benefits to match

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire the good ol' boys and modernize the company into the 21st century. Tenure does automatically suggest quality. Sometimes a tenured individual can simply be taking up valuable space, contributing nothing great, hindering another valuable asset in the form of an employee.
