    Pros

    The absolute best place to work in the early years.. You were appreciated by management, pay and incentives were wonderful. Walter Johnson and Paul Murphy made a great team.. We knew our clients and they knew us.

    Cons

    Management change.. Retail management was only concerned about how many widgets the staff could shove at clients.
    Insurance was awful, profit sharing disappeared, systems were antiquated.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees, pay them fairly, offer insurance that benefits the employees and last but not least remember your roots.. Remember Walter's elevator speech.

    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 (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Multiple Branches, Branch Employees are great

    Cons

    It all depends on who your Manager is, a lot of turnover, very slow response time from back office to get anything accomplished which looks bad for those on the front line. Very high goals and no consideration to your market area since Management is in Houston and is unfamiliar with your clients. Use to be a very client friendly environment, community banking style, but no longer. It's all about tick marks with the feel of a car dealership and to heck what the client's needs are.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the way you were with a friendly atmosphere so clients do not cringe walking in the door that a product is going to be shoved down their throat. Be realistic to goals placed on branches and become familiar with the market area.
