    Pros

    Training and learning, management, coworkers are nice and clean

    Cons

    Salary, SUPER competitive (not enough compensation for the competitiveness), certain managers play favorites, brown nosers, office politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update your payscales to match the market. Promote quality candidates more, not the brown nosers.

    Pros

    Ethical employees who truly care about the customers. Community involvement is always encouraged.
    Great career advancement opportunities if you're willing to relocate or commute.
    Benefits are wonderful with ample vacation and paid holidays.

    Cons

    50 hour work weeks can be necessary to accomplish your responsibilities because of staffing. These hours more often than not, were the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staffing of offices and paying employees that aren't at a management level a better salary.

    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.

    Pros

    You can pay your bills... maybe. You can learn how to be highly political and stab people in the back!

    Cons

    Not really sure where to begin. This used to be a great place to work when it was much smaller. Egos are out of control and they don't value their employees anymore. Management is primarily concerned with keeping their jobs, so watch your back!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management? How about taking some responsibility for your actions.

    I have been working at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Paid holidays off
    People you work with is your family

    Cons

    " It's who you know" nothing to do with how hard you work, how many years you have been there and how great you do your job!
    The pay is horrible, unless you start now with no experience. But when you have been there 20+ years and get .05 cent raises!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember the people that run the branches and take care of the customers!

    Pretty good regional bank

    I worked at Zions Bank

    Pros

    Not a bad work environment. Co-workers are good.

    Cons

    I feel like the bank is behind its competitors (with products, technology, etc). Mediocre compensation. With my experience, HR and recruiting departments did not meet expectations. All of these things lead to a generally high employee turnover across the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More innovation, or just keeping up with other banks at the retail level
