    Pros

    Well managed commercial bank that understands its business and the industries it serves. Greatly appreciates its employees and compensation package is very good.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful family, the bank truly has a warm family environment. Very little conflict and the CFO is one of the founders and keeps the bank "real" with a small bank feeling for the clients and employees.

    Cons

    Health insurance is expensive but honestly, the bank if following the current "Obamacare" trend. We have numerous employee from a competitor that have been laid off and keep comparing our benefits, salaries to their former employer. I don't get it, they were laid off, the company could not have been that wonderful. Very little turn around at the Executive Level, which is a sign of stability.

    Pros

    Very talented group of people
    Company does seem to care about what employees think
    Encourages feedback from employees
    Local name recognition

    Cons

    Poor salary
    Could have better benefits
    Not all departments have the same level of training
    Bais towards those in the Credit Analyst Program

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is what really makes this a great place to work. They do a great job of communicating to the company regardless of whether it is a critical change to the organization or whether it is just a note of thanks. As I mentioned before, they do take employee feedback seriously and try to take their opinions into consideration.

    Pros

    It is a very conservative company, family oriented bank and you will learn a lot.

    Cons

    There's not much growth and promotion within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be ready to think on your feet and out of the box. If you don't know, don't be afraid to ask questions.

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

    Pros

    Life / work balance is great, people are easy to work with, lots of opportunities for growing your professional network and starting a banking career.

    Cons

    Owned by Zions Bancorporation which slows down Amegy. No real synergies from Zions' footprint, pretty much a stand alone separate entity.

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

    Pros

    Mangers that support their staff and work with them to help them better themselves and get further in their carrerrs. The salary is also very competitive and Tellers typically get paid more at Amegy than they would at other banks (even the big banks)

    Cons

    Some of the Managers can be petty and try to screw over other branches in order to help their branch out.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more of a united front and less silly bickering among the Branch Managers and Assistant Managers. While we have branches that all have different goals we all work for the same company and should work together not against each other.

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

    Pros

    -Good bank with positive reputation in the commmunity
    -Good work/life balance
    -Better than average bank products
    -Trustworthy senior management
    -Competitive salary (for new hires)
    -Genuine interest to promote from within and develop employees
    -Good training programs

    Cons

    -Worst benefits around
    -Outdated technology. MS-Dos was the most efficient banker tool and the systems frequently break
    -Small, capped incentive programs

    Advice to Management

    Make the benefits affordable or worthwhile to have. In my opinion, people in an entry level spot (tellers or backoffice) cannot possibly afford these services.

    Try to take care of the employees you are trying to develop. When employees get promoted (let alone multiple times), a standard 5% increase generally puts them well below market salary and can lead to multiple subordinates making more money than their boss. This compensation plan makes it difficult to retain top talent because they can make significantly more money by going to a competitor for a similar position.

    Pros

    The Managers are great with their employers and make it a fun environment to work in. I enjoyed my time working here.

    Cons

    Selling can sometimes be difficult especially in motor bank, and they tend to push you on selling.
