    Pros

    - Great people
    - Great training
    - Great Benefits
    - Great pay rate for the Kanab Area

    Cons

    It is a call center, you should like being constantly on the phone, and it requires a thick skin.

    Advice to Management

    The only suggestion I would make is keep up the good work.

    Pros

    With Peak Time you get the chance to work at many different branches of Zions and are able to meet many great bank employees.

    Cons

    Some of the branches aren't run as efficiently as others and the management doesn't seem to like having Peak Time employees at their branches.

    Advice to Management

    It wouldn't always be possible, but if the Peak Time employees could have a say in which branches they went to and which they didn't shifts could be less stressful.

  7. Good Company, but a little too old fashioned

    Pros

    Decent benefits, Not too much pressure to make sales, opportunities for growth, professional environment, ethical business practices

    Cons

    Pay is nothing to get excited about, most branches are consistently understaffed, corporate upper management has an open door policy, but you'll probably never see any real changes. Compliance department prevents Zion's Bank from being a real banking contender in the 21st century.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to listen to your employees, don't just hear what they say and leave thinking "I know better than they do". Every branch employee (including managers) I ever spoke to felt the same way I did about policies, but upper management never changed anything, and gave unsatisfactory reasons why.

    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
