    I have been working at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Loyal management
    Strong culture of acceptance
    Making changes on systems for more efficiencies

    Cons

    To date software systems have been old.
    The bank is just big enough to fit into the 'too big to fail' group. Thus, the regulation is very demanding for a relatively small bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the hard decisions for the long term benefit of us younger generation.

    I worked at Zions Bank part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Work environment, good pay and benefits. Employees are generally very happy and like what they do, which causes a healthy and happy workplace environment. Very impressed by the company and leadership as a whole. People care about their job and truly like what they do.

    Cons

    It is a big corporation so you often can feel like a fish in the ocean. I truly do not have much bad to say at all for this company. I truly don't have cons to discuss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership and upper management is truly amazing. I would only say to maybe integrate with the general population of the company. Streamlining more company interactions.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    HR support is amazing, I loved working in that department. I enjoyed the time spent my manager and coworkers as well. There is a great training department there that offers tons of courses and eLearning to support the cause.

    Cons

    Technology support isn't always the greatest and the high-deductible health insurance is quite poor, but they try very hard to be lean and mean, which is great!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some money on your infrastructure and professional development software. Work-life balance could be more flexible with jobs that could easily work 30-40% of their work week at home.

    Pros

    Great people. Great facility. Great food. The benefits were very good to include 401K, health insurance, training.

    Cons

    Facility location. Daily drive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your folks to telecommute a couple of times a week. This would help offset the driving fatigue and increase morale.

    Pros

    The atmosphere here is fantastic. It feels good. Everyone is friendly. Good morals and values all around!

    Cons

    In my particular position, there are no real opportunities to progress. The work is dull and monotonous. There is no challenge, no need to use your brain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No matter the employee's position, make sure they have opportunities to progress and show their talent, if they have any.

    I worked at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Great benefits! Where else can you get full benefits working for 20 hours a week. Fantastic flexibility for college students and pay above average for college students.

    Cons

    Run the other way if they want you to split your time between the teller line and the personal banking desk. they send you to training to open accounts and do loans, but then panic when there is a line in the lobby, so they want you at the teller line, so you can't retain anything you learned in the account side of your training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your people to learn personal banking by giving them time and mentoring to do their job before placing employees in the uncomfortable position of being in front of a customer and not knowing how to open an account or do a loan. Felt thrown to the wolves.

    Pros

    Team focused approach. Large enough to take care of most client needs, small enough to make decisions locally.

    Cons

    Regulations have made it harder to get things done.

    Pros

    Coworkers in may department are great, Flexible school scheudling

    Cons

    Managers will always low ball you on pay then turn around and pay someone more who had no banking experience. H append in 3 departments (yes i did ask for more and rejected offers because of it) Zions doesnt really compete in products. Zions declines almost everyone on credit products. Zions put themselves first and employees last in some occassions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to acknowledge your long time employees and not just the new ones.
