    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Not much lately. I'm actually really struggling to come up with anything.

    Cons

    The bancorp continues to cut expenses through compensation and benefits. They have major projects that are nearly 10 years overdue. Their Simple, Easy and fast initiative is anything but that. Zions is complex, cumbersome and slow. They have been updating technology which as been a major concern. However, they still make poor choices. They tend to value vendors that are based in Utah, not because they are local. They...

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

    Pros

    The culture is okay as you have a lot of people who have been with the bank many years and are very loyal to the organization so it can help your department feel like a “family” depending on which one you are in. Some developmental growth is possible but that seriously depends on how hard you try and your dept./manager.

    Cons

    Compensation is horrible and well below the industry standard for a lot of positions in operations. I don’t even want to mention the healthcare package.... They are making an effort to change and streamline the ops systems but are too cheap and don’t have enough resources to make it happen in a realistic time frame. You will be dealing with a lot of slow and outdated systems. Lots of folks that have been with the bank...

    Advice to Management

    Get young professionals that have diverse and fresh perspectives into the Bancorp to help it stay alive! Stop being cheap with benefits packages as most organizations are adapting to the increasing demand of fair compensation.

    I have been working at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The technicians are top notch

    Cons

    Management disrespect for ADA employee minorities behind closed doors. Taking credit for work done by ADA protected employees and giving it favorite employees. More concern for checking the box for audit and security initiatives than to actually correct core issues. Too much work with too few individuals. Managers who are inept, and unable to competently gauge quality work.

    Pros

    The co workers, although some think they are superior and rules do not apply to them.

    Cons

    Loved when Vectra ran the operations division. When they decided that Amegy out of Texas would be a good fit they were so wrong! The most degrading, micromanaged, uneducated group of con men there are! I think their goal is to eventually shut down so they can move everything to Texas! They make fun of the employees that don’t make a bunch of money and say they look like they shop at Walmart! That is not a good atmosphere!

    Advice to Management

    Zions .... GET rid of Texas !!!!

    I worked at Zions Bancorporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They will take you to a pirate game once a year.

    Cons

    The Pittsburgh office is epitome of the worst place to work. This company has no real training and wants you to learn your job on the fly from employees who don't show up for work, half the employees don't know what they are doing and expect you to find the correct answers for them. Management attempts to manage some people but not all, they allow some employees ( the ones they are scared to manage) to walk over...
