    OK company, great coworkers, iffy management

    Teller (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

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

    ConsIt'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 Senior ManagementSupport 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Company contributes to downtown parking/Trax Pass
    Good community connections

    ConsThe pay is so-so
    Some of the basic systems are outdated and tedious
    It's hard to advance within a department, so people jump around

    Backward and dull place to work

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsThe schedule is generally 8 hours a day. There are some genuinely nice and professional people who work there.

    ConsThe pay was below average. The medical insurance was expensive and the coverage was poor (high-deductible plan). The technology, such as Microsoft Office, was several versions behind. The culture was uninspiring and did not encourage innovation or improvement. I heard sexist jokes and comments from some of the older male managers who seemed oblivious to how inappropriate their behavior was.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpgrade your technology. Offer competitive pay and benefits. Weed out bad managers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good start to the business world

    Credit Analyst (Current Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsExperience 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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementShare the wealth

    Zions is good company to work for. I enjoyed my time there. I was a Customer Service Manager.

    Customer Service Manager (Former Employee) Salt Lake City, UT

    ProsCustomer service focused. Quite a bit of leniency with upselling products, rather than being a drill sergeant like Wells Fargo. Good training program. Really friendly people.

    ConsWay behind the times as far as technology and processes go. Can be a little frustrating at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake more input from your branch personnel and use their feedback.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Too many inflexible silos.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLot of good people but several of the executive officers are incompetent.

    ConsManagement is out of touch. Relatives of Holding Company's CEO are not held accountable for disastrous job performance. Executive officers don't want to be confronted when their performance is poor and don't have any enforced expectations to change their behavior.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUse of complaint system is used in an absolute vacuum without any competent management discernment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
