    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work/life balance and the largest bank headquartered in the Utah region.

    Cons

    Technology is archaic and communication form management leaves a lot to be desired. The insurance and retirement benefits are below average for the industry, yet management continually states how great the packages are.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to and get exposure to employees other than direct reports. Many decisions are made logistically that are political battles instead of what makes sense.

    Pros

    Work environment is amiable but politics always is an issue

    Cons

    Lack if organization and software is what holds the company back from being a true market leader.

    Advice to Management

    Give better benefits or pay your people more if you want to keep talent around for longer.

      I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 5 years

      Pros

      The hours are good and managers are fairly flexible.

      Cons

      Few opportunities to advancement and the health benefits stink. There are also way to many level of management and they are duplicated across the affiliated banks. Sometimes I feel like people take my reports and make small changes to them and that is their job.

      Advice to Management

      I think Management should take a hard look at the business model and remove all of the redundant roles and compress middle management.

      I have been working at Zions Bancorporation

      Pros

      Great benefits, relaxed professional environment, opportunities for growth.

      Cons

      Banks are slow moving and in some ways this is still true but in general there are movements toward higher quality and faster production at Zions Bancorp and so there are new niches that can be carved out for new roles. (Another Pro)

      Advice to Management

      The current movement toward more efficient and relevant systems will work well. But there are some changes that need to be made at the lowest level in order to make these larger changes in efficiency most effective.

      "Nice place, but lack of leadership"

        I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time

        Pros

        I worked at the Salt Lake downtown headquarters and it was physically a nice place to work, beautiful views of the city and artwork hung throughout the building. The people with whom I was around were great. Work/Life balance was good.

        Cons

        In my department, too many people's job descriptions have been hijacked by the Dodd-Frank regulation. Very little work on profitability, and a complete emphasis on chasing fuzzy compliance targets created by regulators --not entirely the company's fault, but how it's delt with is. This made for a murky path for growth, see below.

        Advice to Management

        Someone needs to recognize that the current personnel organization is not equipped to properly and efficiently meet the CCAR/DFAST regulatory burden, and they need to take a leadership role in redesigning roles and personnel structure for this need. Trying to innovate and improve was difficult in an environment where the middle managers were largely fighting great big fires but could communicate little long-term vision...

        I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Great people overall. There was a great work/life balance for employees for the most part.

        Cons

        If you have an issue with a manager, and go to their manager or HR, they may collude to get you out, rather than help with the problem. Some of the management seemed to let the newly attained power go to their heads.

        Advice to Management

        Be careful or many of the best employees might get pushed out due to these petty ego issues.
