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

    Pros

    The company takes good care of its employees.

    Cons

    Benefits package has been a little light but is getting better

    Advice to Management

    Keep hiring great managers, keep making work/life balance a high priority. My only request is possibly add a Health Share option to the benefits package.

    Pros

    Good hours, home life scenarios are wonderful! Good volunteering times

    Cons

    Too many consultants, not enough local resources

    Advice to Management

    keep looking for local hires, when the consultants leave, they take too much knowledge with them.

    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    If you chose an area with good management, it makes all the difference. Profit sharing, insurance, vacation pay, some positions have flexible hours. Salary is decent.

    Cons

    Not the best insurance, slightly below peers. High deductibles ($3,000-$6,000) depending on plan you have. Dental and Eye plan are through company (50% reimbursement up to $1,750 yr maximum) Advancement can be quicker based on who you know.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the management of each department at least twice a year. Make sure the right people are in these positions. Are they adhering to the culture you are promoting? Is there high turnover? Are objectives and projects on track?

    Pros

    Mentorship opportunities and ability to interact with senior management.

    The % increases and restrictions allowed by HR make it hard for managers / executives to compensate an employee appropriately at times.

    Advice to Management

    Monitor your youthful talent. They will be the difference makers soon.

    Pros

    Relaxed environment, nice people, and no reviews in IT.

    Cons

    Promote unskilled people to leadership instead of recruiting from outside. Benefits are easily among the worst in the valley for comparably sized companies, especially if you are a tech person

    Advice to Management

    Make employees come to the office, "remote work" is a literal joke for most employees.

    Pros

    Nice people, nice 401(k) match.

    Cons

    You only get promoted if you're a woman. There is a huge emphasis on promoting women and creating a diverse workplace. However, men get left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the best candidate for the position.
