Great place to work but many false promises and quirky management.

Pros

Great place to learn and gain experience. Learning and development courses keep employees up to date.

Cons

If manager doesn't go to bat for you during bonus time, you could find yourself without. Annual compensation raises average between 1-3%. Promotions are based on tenure at company and not work output. Very political work environment where other employees will not hesitate to throw you under the bus to move ahead. Managers would prefer you be at your desk for 8+ hours a day doing nothing rather than work output and performance. Younger employees with less experience work harder than more senior level employees. Micro-management is a big negative and upper level management would rather delegate work than do it themselves. Managers promise employees things that never materialize.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With older more seasoned employees working longer, its increasingly difficult for younger employees to move up in the company. Not everyone is meant to manage and lead other employees. It seems many managers are where they are because of how long they have been with the company. New employees hired with same job title should not make $20,000 more a year than similar employee with significantly more experience.

    Pros

    Management knows your name
    Compensation decent
    Need younger management.... most executives will not retire and move over for others to shine.

    Cons

    Values used to be strong.... times changed after Zions bought them.
    Benefits are for disasters... high deductible only

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Life work balance needs to be a priority
