    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Upgrade your technology. Offer competitive pay and benefits. Weed out bad managers.

    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.

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customer 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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take more input from your branch personnel and use their feedback.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Use of complaint system is used in an absolute vacuum without any competent management discernment.

    The people that you work with are pretty good.

    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.
