    The pay is terrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees like to be promoted or given raises. Try doing it once in a while.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Zions Banks is a great place for it's people to build lasting business partnerships. The organization is a good place for "corporate entrepreneurs". Zions Bank "feels" like a community bank, but has most of the resources of a larger institution.

    Cons

    Too often managers are brought in from the outside and tend to be out of touch with the organization's culture and capabilities. Technology is really behind the times. The structure of Zions Bancorporation as "A Collection of Great Banks", running somewhat autonomously makes for much innefficiency. The back office help in Salt Lake City is not always the most helpful and is out of touch with the market place and needs of rural clients/employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to and implement the advice of the front-line employees.

    Pros

    Great co-workers
    gain basic understanding of financial industry

    Not a lot of opportunities to advance in retail banking. Limited management jobs with lots of good qualified applicants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep encouraging growth and development in employees, cross training is good for the bank.

    Pros

    Great training programs for new hires and plenty of training opportunities.
    Large banking presence in the State of Utah.
    Many opportunities to advance.

    Cons

    Every month there's a new idea the bank is pushing out that will be forgotten within a year.
    Base pay is low compared to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale back on the harebrained ideas and focus more on the basics of retail banking.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and hours, bank holidays, and competitive pay. I'm on a well-assembled team who really enjoy working together, that really makes all the difference. Extremely competent executive management.

    Cons

    Health insurance is quite weak compared to other employers that I've worked for. Like most companies, there can be a good amount of political back-biting that goes on, but you just need to tell yourself to rise above it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage greater cohesiveness and collaboration within and between departments. Zions has some greater competitive advantages in its footprint that can lead to some great growth in the future.
