Great people, opportunities to grow, but you have to make your own "work-life" balance

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThe people I worked with were wonderful, including management. Training was always available if you asked for it--often focused on "growth" areas rather than "how to do my job right now." You can move up through the ranks if you are focused and have a plan in mind.

ConsBenefits are terrible--you pay a lot for is essentially catastrophic coverage only. Salaries are on the low end of average.

Advice to Senior ManagementFor such a large company, they could do a better job of providing some work/life benefits--subsidized child care, gyms, subsidized cafeterias, etc.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It's a job, there is a reason for all the turnover in capable technical people

Vice President IT (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are a lot of intelligent individual contributors. The technology is good but not great. They are a relatively stable company and rarely do layoffs.

ConsBenefits are horrible. Management in technology area leaves a lot to be desired. Everything from tyrants to space cadets. Promotions depend more on social networks than on capabilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementFix the benefits and stop promoting morons because they are friends with the CTO. And get a real CTO.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The HR Department at TOPS

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
West Valley City, UT

I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than a year

ProsThe TOPS organization as a whole has great people.

ConsHow can the HR leadership team be in HR and treat people like underlings. Is HR not supposed to set the example of being Passionate about People!!!!

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some time to look into the poor example your HR leadership team is setting. You used to have some really good people there. How many more have to leave. You say you care about your employees, get someone in HR who does and sets a good example there.
