    Pros

    Like most financial institutions they give you every bank holiday off paid, and they offer a lot of PTO and sick time off. Most of your co-workers will also be pretty solid people--hard working, ethical, and nice.

    Cons

    Because there is very little turn-over in senior staff (managers, VPs of one flavor or another) there is very little room for career progression. Some of the lack of turn-over is that Zions can (depending on the department) be a decent place to work. But some of the lack of turn-over is horribly incompetent bosses who will have difficulty finding anything else--so they stay and make their underlings lives miserable. Lack many corporations of this size there is very little accountability for management: no one really cares that much about the bad/poor/sub-optimal behavior of a manager until (and maybe not even then) he's cost them a lot of lost talent. So a bad boss sticks around a lot longer than they should because there aren't any processes in place to encourage feedback from employees at all levels. In my department we endure a manager who has unrealistic expectations of his employees because he doesn't (and indeed seems incapable of) do(ing) any of the work...or anything at all, from our perspective. He lacks the ability to prioritize, plan, or productively interact with his employees. And for a guy who seems incapable of producing any worthwhile work on his own (in contrast to past department heads), he is awfully demanding of his employees. I guess there should be a new saying, "those who can't do, lead."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out a way to make your managers at all levels accountable for their behavior. Give employees a voice (an anonymous voice--so as to avoid retribution) in their manager's reviews. If managers knew that their employees could--if treated poorly--have recourse which had a financial cost to the manager, I think managers would generally treat their employees more fairly. The current system rewards only productivity, not retention or satisfaction level of talent...and that is an oversight because finding and retaining talent is an extremely expensive proposition.

    Pros

    Good solid company with room for advancement and resume building. Show up and go to work mgmt stays off your back.

    Cons

    Pay was not the best as far as experience. good entry level job but not much else. Mgmt was misguided and not helpful with problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They guided as they saw fit. Only looked at you if you were a problem, stay out of there hair and you are good.
