    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 4 years. They still believe in having personal service and knowing their customers by name. They are a big bank with a small bank feel. I work with a great set of coworkers. We truly get along and support each other.

    Cons

    This is very much a sales position. You will constantly be pushing loans on people and trying to get them to sign up for things. It was as aggressively sales as it is now. They are quickly becoming like all the other big banks on pressing loans down customers throats. Yet it is very difficult to get loans approved because Amegy has very conservative credit lines that they abide by. Someone who may get declined for a credit card at our bank can go to another bank and be approved for a 5k limit. This makes your job of selling loans much harder!

    Advice to Management

    Create better training programs for day to day situations and how to overcome obstacles in day to day situations.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people employed there that are willing to share knowledge and experiences and not be threatened that a individual will steal their job. Unfortunately, those individual are sparse throughout the organization.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, very much run by and still practices the "good ol' boy system" Extremely poor pay with poor benefits to match

    Advice to Management

    Retire the good ol' boys and modernize the company into the 21st century. Tenure does automatically suggest quality. Sometimes a tenured individual can simply be taking up valuable space, contributing nothing great, hindering another valuable asset in the form of an employee.
