    I worked at Amegy Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amegy isn't a bad place work. Most of the people are great. Employee's are empowered to help customers. I feel they are supportive of a work life balance.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't that attractive. Negotiate the highest salary you can upon being hired because raises are very small and there is no room to negotiate once employed. Only high deductible medical insurance is available. Very rarely do they promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Spend time training and molding internal candidates for future promotions.
