    I worked at Amegy Corporation part-time

    Pros

    It was a great place to work for as a part-time teller. I loved everything about it. Most of everyone that I got to work aside was nice and helpful, made work not feel like work. It was really like working with family. Training program was excellent was one week long 8-5.

    Cons

    Everything was wonderful until manager was promoted to different location and new manager from another location took over. She hated the way our team worked and decided to clean house. Made work a living hell whenever she was in the office.

    Advice to Management

    They should really keep an eye out for managers that have too much power.

    Pros

    Great work life balance of you can afford it. Manager is rarely in the office which is beneficial but at times detrimental to accomplishing tasks.

    Cons

    Insurance is expensive. Raises are little. There is a lack of opportunity although turnover has been high. No opportunity to advance career.

    Advice to Management

    The same names/people get promoted. Try something different for a change, you might be surprised.

    I worked at Amegy Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Great way to start gaining experience in the financial/banking industry. Fun people to work with. Nice locations, there are less than 10 locations in Dallas.

    Cons

    It is very hard to advance your career outside of simple retail banking. There is not a lot of internal promotions within back office positions. Promoting happens primarily at the retail level from teller to banker.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    They work well with scheduling time for family events or emergencies and you can really learn whatever you want above and beyond your position.

    Cons

    Although they foster growth they prefer to hire outside for most positions. Tenure doesn't matter. Also they don't think things through or get employees opinions on changes to products but are always saying that our banking centers are the front lines. Could use a spot on Undercover Boss...

    Advice to Management

    Update your systems and when you ask for advice from your employees ACTUALLY listen
