    Pros

    The Bank's Guiding Principles are lived out in everything the Bank does. That's something I've really appreciated during my time here. I want my work to be meaningful and impactful and it has been both. I am able to affect positive change in my community through my work and still incorporate my passions in my job.

    Cons

    Benefits could be a little better. Health insurance isn't as robust as it could me. And Dental is basically a reimbursement program (like pet insurance), which isn't great. They has also been some corporate restructuring leading some employees to feel a little unstable in their jobs. There is a lot of pressure on hourly employees in support departments to make themselves irreplaceable, probably more than there should be.

    Advice to Management

    While making restructuring decisions, please give clear rules and guidelines on how employees at every level will proceed. Right now, it feels very foggy!

    Pros

    Zions Bank is great to work for as far as having a family and understanding that life is bigger than work.

    Cons

    Medical benefits are lower-tier, salary slow to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees market rates without them having to get outside job offers. Internal promotions do not fetch market pay for the position.

    Pros

    Good people to work with. CEO/President is wonderful and very community-oriented. Family oriented. Highly encouraged to volunteer and help in community. CRA isn't "lip service", it is part of the culture.

    Cons

    Moves very slow with IT projects and approvals. Highly conservative with the interpretation of banking regulations that stifles innovation. Some people managing vendors treat vendors like servants not partners.

    Advice to Management

    Losing some great tech and banking people to other companies. Retain the great talent. Technology needs to not just be equal to competitors, need to be ahead.

    Pros

    As a bank, it's a big player in the middle tier arena. It's not a Chase or Wells Fargo in that they have as many policies and restrictions, and they take pride in that they are genuinely concerned for the customer, and for their employees. There is opportunity to move up depending on what office and/or division you work in. HR is full of fantastic, compassionate people.

    Cons

    Depending on where you work, you could end up in a very small world of people that are stuck in their positions of lower level management with little intention of leaving, as you may be in a small town or smaller area. This can create a culture of stagnation or "my way or the highway" factor.

    Advice to Management

    Set very clear expectations, thus allowing flexibility in knowing what the opportunities for growth are, in addition to knowing where you stand with the company as a whole. Don't limit interaction with management to a branch. Thank you for the many training opportunities and the career fairs that do exist.
