    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.

    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.
