I worked at Zions Bank as an intern for less than a year

Pros

The environment at Zions Bank has been my favorite. The people are friendly and everyone is willing to help out. There are some very talented people working within Zions Bank, and moving up at this company will reap many benefits.

Cons

I was just an intern, so I didn't find many cons with this particular job. Getting a full time offer with them would be great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have more opportunities for people to create growth within this company.

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Bankers hours/holidays were awesome. Vacation pay was good. Does a lot for the community. Interest rates and other products given to employees are fantastic.

    Bosses will go to bat for you... if you're in their clique.

    Cons

    The insurance choices here are reprehensible unless you're single.

    The marketing department went from awesome to horrid a few months ago. New leaders are very nepotistic and view friendships as more important than actual skill in doing the job. IF you're not on the boss' good side, or they plain don't like you, they will find even the littlest thing to "get" you on, and then trump it up.

    Basically, communication between upper and middle management is lacking terribly.

    While HR is an advocate for employees generally, if you're labeled as someone that deserves to be fired, no one will hear your side of the story. No investigations will happen to see if allegations are true. They just are.

    Don't make any promises — written or verbal. If a manager wants to get rid of you, those promises can be dissolved quickly, even if they're written down. Integrity doesn't matter here.

    For a company who says, "We Haven't Forgotten Who Keeps Us In Business", they sure treat their employees — who are every bit as important in this business as the customers — terribly.

    My advice if you're looking in this company: any other department is probably worth working for at Zions... maybe. But steer clear of the marketing department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your "underlings". Don't trust your managers at their word. Give both people their sides of the story. Have integrity — if you promise something, make it happen. Stick up for your talented employees.

    I have been working at Zions Bank

    Pros

    You can certainly expect little change in some areas - enjoy banker's hours, better interest rates for employee bank accounts.

    Cons

    Terrible insurance.

     Marketing department is full of dishonesty and completely lacks integrity. If you are a trusting person who assumes others are honest and that hard-work will turn into a stable job or even a promotion, you will get caught off guard for sure. The department is extremely divided with a high degree of back-biting. The EVP is a hands-off manager, and does not handle confrontation, and ignores wrong-doing. There are some excellent employees, but unfortunately, they either leave, get fired on false grounds, or are afraid to speak up for change for fear of also being weeded out.

    Also, it is an incredibly difficult place to come into. The department has multiple cliques. If you are an outsider, you are doomed.

    Information which is vital to job-roles is not shared openly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees. Executive management needs to address rogue employees who act outside of recommended plans as well as take action when dishonesty occurs. Break up the divide, and steer away from the nepotism.
