    Pros

    You get 2 weeks vacation. Which is more than most other places right off the bat. I was able to do a lot of school work also. But that's about it.

    Cons

    The managers suck! They have no management skills whatsoever. If you give them an suggestion or express concern about a fellow employee, they automatically go into defensive mode and won't listen to what you are saying.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Not everything is a fight. You are not getting attacked when we tell you something. So grow up and accept that suggestions given to you.

    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.
