    I worked at Zions Bancorporation as a contractor

    Pros

    None. No mater how much the pay was it wasn't worth the poor communication and out of touch management.

    Cons

    I worked as a contractor hoping to get on as an FTE. It wasn't that hard of a job, pretty ease to get up to speed but I found that the was no room for Suggestions on Process and don't bother ask for more work when you are done with what you have. sit there quietly and wait to be told what to do next. (sometimes it took weeks to get more work). Stop asking for more to do we will let you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to Upper management - your middle tier management doesn't talk to each other. From what I saw they really dont know whats going on. Lots of closed doors and Lots of working from home.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working here because they notice your strengths and put me in positions that directly related to those. They are team oriented and want everyone to succeed.

    Cons

    It's a call center...if you don't mind taking a lot of calls it is a great place to work.

    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of job opportunities and a variety of technologies to learn. Competitive wages. Great people to work with. Work from home 1-2 days a week.

    Benefits, especially health benefits are poor and are on the very low end of the "benefit" spectrum!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop mimicking the rhetoric and do something about health care benefits and improving them. The employees have spoken, LISTEN to what they have to say!

    The worst experience in my entire banking career

    • Comp & Benefits
    Former Employee - Business Banker
    Former Employee - Business Banker

    I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of training for new employees .

    Cons

    I have always worked for big banks. In my last year before contemplating retirement from the banking industry I joined California Bank and Trust. Terrible choice. I was recruited for almost a year by a CB&T employee. I had my reservations about the company business model and what a mistake it was. This bank's product line is extremely weak, no name recognition, technology is way behind, credit underwriting is horrible, they do not understand risk, they put client to the worst and painful experience when they ask for credit (I understand the credit model changes after the 2008 crisis)etc. My Wells Fargo customers did not want to change because they did not know anything about California Bank and Trust. My advice to anyone wanting to go from Big Banks to Small Community Banks, please stick with the big banks. California Bank & Trust is not a customer and relationship driven bank, it is about selling widgets, just like the big banks. However, with the big banks you have a name behind . Compensation is OK, benefits suck, so for that stay with the big boys . This bank is trying to play major league when they are not even ready for little league .

    Pros

    Great people overall. There was a great work/life balance for employees for the most part.

    Cons

    If you have an issue with a manager, and go to their manager or HR, they may collude to get you out, rather than help with the problem. Some of the management seemed to let the newly attained power go to their heads.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be careful or many of the best employees might get pushed out due to these petty ego issues.
