    I worked at Zions Bank

    Pros

    The people are excellent. I've never worked with such a great, supportive, and willing-to-help group of people. The atmosphere was good, and I felt like I worked for a respected, trusted organization.

    Cons

    I wished sometimes that I had had more training when I first started out. That was a challenge for me. I also disliked having my raises based off of generating business for the bank in a manner above and beyond what my job description called for.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy the employee's and atmosphere. Very laid back and understanding when needs arise in ones personal life. That is very rare indeed.

    Cons

    Have to say organization of projects. But that can be said for most large companies. Maybe it will improve. I'm sure it will.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give contractors a chance to similarly feel equal to full-time employee's. Some of those contractors have been their for years and still feel unease. If not in the past, they do now. They work just as hard if not harder because they want to prove to management and coworkers they are valuable.

    Pros

    You get paid for most everything with no threshold. Bonuses for training.

    Cons

    Bad products. The products are not competitive with other banks. The company is dysfunctional. Really old technology that makes the job far more difficult than it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at what other banks are doing. You don't have to mirror other banks, but you have to be on par with them. It is hard to sell the products available knowing that the benefits that other banks offer their customers is far greater.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are great. You can get full time benefits at just 20hrs/week. Training is extensive. Pretty well compensated for sales, + sales competitions are good.

    Cons

    It's hard to sell Zion's products (morally and as a salesman), because most of the banking industry is way ahead of them. Banking software is, literally, from the late 90's, and very slow. Management is unsupportive, usually nice people but they don't show their appreciation for tellers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your employees. Don't be afraid to reduce micromanagement and spread out responsibilities. Stick around with your employees; don't leave at 3-3:30 while your employees are there until 6:30.

    Pros

    Experience is relevant, lots of experience within management, the employees in the department are in the same life stage, everyone knows Zions Bank. Almost never worked more than 40 hours. M-F

    Cons

    The health insurance could be better (high-deductible), the tuition reimbursement program is for MBAs and requires a payback period.
