    Pros

    Teams are like a family. There are places to grow within the whole company.

    Cons

    The jobs provided can be very draining and overwhelming. No motivation or cheering on to make sure you can get the job done on time or right.

    Advice to Management

    Do more things to make your employees love their job rather than have them dread going to work. Make them motivated instead of just command them.

    Pros

    Great, flexible work environment, people are easy to get along with, plenty of different projects going on.

    Cons

    Zions lets vendors & contractors have all the 'cool' new projects and lets their FTE's work on the old legacy stuff. Lots of hot fixes & waterfall development on the legacy systems.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that Zions' wages are below market & people will start to look around if they're not recognized for their efforts.

    Pros

    Been at Zions over a year and have been part of exciting financial transformation projects. Great culture, work life balance and opportunity.

    Cons

    A little old fashioned and late to the game in some respects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to be open to change.

    Pros

    Really unique experience working with large corporate loans with top west-coast Private Equity firms. Also Zion's has really good people w/ good values.

    Cons

    Not as much structure in the intern program as some of the larger financial companies like Goldman Sachs, which can sometimes be a good thing or a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Having clear goals for what an intern is expected to do and accomplish over the internship program may help.

    Pros

    Great benefits, relaxed professional environment, opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    Banks are slow moving and in some ways this is still true but in general there are movements toward higher quality and faster production at Zions Bancorp and so there are new niches that can be carved out for new roles. (Another Pro)

    Advice to Management

    The current movement toward more efficient and relevant systems will work well. But there are some changes that need to be made at the lowest level in order to make these larger changes in efficiency most effective.

    Pros

    This is a stable company to work for. They really do watch their headcount closely and so you don't have the hire/layoff cycles that you see in less conservative companies. The company has a good reputation within the community. The work/life balance is pretty good and you don't see a lot of 60-hour work weeks.

    Cons

    The regulatory environment can be somewhat stifling sometimes and slows down the overall pace of innovation. The health plan is the most often heard complaint, but that's just part of living in this country.

    Advice to Management

    TOPS is on a good track to standardize the processes of the affiliate banks. Please continue to support and emphasize that. The single contributors need the political support of management when it comes to reigning in the affiliates on their customization requests.

    Pros

    I've worked for a few companies. Zion's really allows you to make a difference in your area of responsibility. Strong leadership and a good corporate culture.

    Cons

    Don't really have anything negative to say. Benefits maybe aren't as good as some companies I've worked for but good overall.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline operations by centralizing more affiliate bank processes / departments

    Pros

    Good people to work with. Enjoyed association with most of the people there. Professional work environment. Growth opportunities. Work from home.

    Cons

    budget cuts impact training and resource availability. Strategic direction not clearly defined/communicated. Med benefits seriously lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Commitment to people and personal growth needs to improve (trending down). Clear strategic direction and communication of direction through the ranks to help better drive priorities and decisions. Great respect for the CEO and Affiliate Bank Presidents...incredible industry knowledge and experience.

    Pros

    Great Company that cares about its employees and work-life balance. Relaxed atmosphere in the technology and operations division. 401k matching, tuition help,casual dress code, great vacation time and sick pay.

    Cons

    Health benefits leave a lot to be desired. Buildings are not up to date and a little drab. Leadership changes hands often. Salaries are lower than some of the larger tech companies out there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Valuing your employees, they are you best asset. Keep investing in technology it is the way of the future.
