    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.

    Pros

    Enjoy my job very much and the atmosphere is very good.

    Cons

    Their health care benefits are one of the worst in any industry. They are definitely the worst our family has ever had. We are extremely shocked by this and very disappointed.

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

    Pros

    Not sure. I guess they were flexible with time. Individually, some people were great. Others...not so much. Decent vacation and sick time.

    Cons

    Horrible Management, caring more about pleasing their own bosses than about taking care of their employees. Didn't value employees and care about their career (and career progression). Healthcare benefits are horrible. I could probably keep going, but I'll keep it short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit!?! Think of others, not yourself.

    Pros

    Management cares. Bank holidays. Loan rates for employees is good. Co-workers are great to work with.

    Cons

    Health insurance. I thought there were more cons than this, so I left. I've come to realize, there are very few cons to working for Zions Bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I left for the "family" culture of a major credit union in Utah. Boy was that a big mistake. I wish I could go back. I may be able to in the future, but the right job will have to open up. The credit union is less customer service oriented than Zions Bank is. Bad move on my part. After seeing another CEO at work, Scott Anderson is an amazing CEO. The best around.
