    Pros

    Growing company. Good Work/life balance

    Cons

    Tenure can be valued more than capability. Growing through the ranks may take more than an impressive pedigree, productivity or brains.

    Merit should be focused on productivity not on tenure

    I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and knowledgeable coworkers. Typical 8-5 job. Good job security.

    Cons

    Benefits are some of the worst around. Very high deductible health insurance. Total lack of job training. The computer system is completely ancient (black screen, MSDos input style); although it is in the process of being replaced. Employees are milked for process improvement ideas and little recognition given back to them. Back office employees lack morale. Fear of getting called out or yelled at is the motivation for many employees to do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Enough with the cutbacks. Treat employees with a little more respect via health benefits, training, etc (these are basic things).

    I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Career advancement opportunities are good.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management and sub-par benefits. Salary is just so-so.

    Advice to Management

    Do not put external contractors in charge of internal projects and bancorp personnel. This is a recipe for disaster.

    Pros

    People hands down.
    Some real solid folks there but sadly a high rate of turn over.
    Some flex in work hours manager dependent.
    Good dtc location.
    Decent benefits minus insurance - costs high.

    Cons

    Right hand doesn't know what left hand is doing.
    Disconnect between Zion's Corp and management in the MLC.
    Disconnect between sales and ops.
    Bonus/incentive structure changed and not to the benefit of staff but Zions made profit over their projections .... Interesting!

    Advice to Management

    Zions is still trying to bring the centralized ops center (MLC) to solid foundation. Lots of growing pains, keep your staff over informed for comfort.

    Pros

    Descent employer. Job is relatively secure. Easy to build professional relationships, which is highly advised.

    Cons

    Work is being thrown over imaginary walls. Swim or sink. Tendency to fall behind business and technology vs. competition, then play catch-up.
