    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, scheduling hours can be standardized. Most employees have many years of experience and can help with almost any problem without calling a manager.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't stellar. Pay raises are basically non existent. Not a lot of room for advancement within the company so it is hard to stay motivated.

    Advice to Management

    It would be great to give some incentives as to keep more employees longer. Benefits platform and protocol could be completely redesigned so copays would be included.

    Pros

    Code access to scripting and tools

    Cons

    Poor management and no growth. Developers are pulled in many directions leading to misguided efforts.

    Advice to Management

    Need to see new blood as there have been too many here for too long without other experience anywhere else.

    Pros

    Great people and environment. The culture is good and there is opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Recently the CEO made a decision and passed the buck down to lower levels of management to share the bad news. Lately I've been less impressed with the CEO as he has made some poor choices (in my opinion) to focus on expenses over employees.

    Advice to Management

    Even though expense reduction is important don't forget the human aspect in your decisions.

    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time (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

    Management is easy to work with. The team is very helpful. Great benefits and work great with scheduling time off.

    Cons

    The main con is that there is only one location. So unless you live in West Valley you will have a commute

    Pros

    The bank takes pride in being able to promote from within. Additionally, they do listen and address concerns were they can.

    Cons

    Benefits... The health benefits are a bit pricey with having high deductible plans, but you can offsite the health costs by participating in an HSA account.

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

    Pros

    The people I directly worked with were very nice and easy to get along with. I worked in an open concept office setting so it was easy to have a conversation.

    Cons

    No value of employees at all. The CEO of both Zions Bank and the Bancorporation are scumbags who only care about filling their own pockets at the end of the day. I heard this year that they took away annual Christmas bonuses which were only 100 bucks to begin with. The lousy part is that they didn't have the "you know what" to send a formal email themselves but instead told their subordinates to deal with it. Many families depend on this for their gifts to children and I have close friends from the company that will have to make great sacrifices now. They are so cheap at this point that they are no longer paying for plastic utensils in the break room. You will get fired for working overtime and missing more than 5 days in a year if you are sick. They need a massive restructuring (i.e termination of high level decision makers) if they want to retain their happy employees. No path upwards as well, glad I'm no longer there.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out and start prioritizing the wants and needs of your employees. This will in turn lead to happy customers.

    Work environment is amiable but politics always is an issue

    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.
