    I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent medical. Decent 401k match. Good engagement between management and employees. Plenty of paid time off (I loved having the "bank holidays" off, in addition to the personal and sick time off.) Mostly encouraging culture.

    Some departments were managed in less-than-awesome ways . It's more about who know than what you know and contribute.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to, and implement, employee ideas and feedback.
