    Pros

    Easy access to top management
    Many earning opportunities
    Managers and coworkers very open to helping new employees learn and grow

    Cons

    Healthcare coverage isn't very good now that amegy is a part of Zions. Some departments don't focus on hiring high quality employees so it affects other departments productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees. Give more incentives to encourage those so some at the bottom don't feel like they are stuck in dead end jobs.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the culture of this bank. They don't push sales as much as other banks. They focus on customer service.

    Cons

    They need to hire better leaders. The managers are micro managers. They also don't address bad employees and promote unfit managers.

    Advice to Management

    Higher pay and more incentives.

    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.

    Pros

    North area Houston. Extensive training for position empowerment. Encouraged career growth.

    Cons

    Lost sight of what made them the "A Bank", great customer service and focused on the bottom line. Unfortunately it happens with growth.

    Advice to Management

    Never lose sight of the frontline employees that can make or break Amegy's reputation. Encourage and empower growth from within.
