    Pros

    Very healthy culture, especially for industry standards.

    Cons

    Difficult to move up. Pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Many of your sales positions experience high turnover. Provide road maps for employees to be promoted within their position, or through advancement. Without competitive pay, your best talent will continue going to the competition.

    Pros

    It's a great organization and very involved with the community. I love the community service and the strong reputation.

    Cons

    They should do a better job training management. I have a friend who is going to be leaving the company soon because her manager is an employee who was promoted to his position, but he received no training, and he just has no idea what he's doing. It's sad.

    Pros

    Job security if you are committed. Great effort from teams to achieve excellence. Tons of projects with the new direction the company is taking.

    Cons

    Occasional internal bickering and fight for power (influence). Company is big in cutting cost right now, sometimes that becomes a bigger expense in the future. Some managers take offense in honest feedback about current and future products and services.

    Advice to Management

    Take constructive criticism and assess them with seriousness, your employees offer great insight on the projects they are working on.

    Pros

    Don't need much experience. Good pay for little experience, only a high school diploma required. They don't push sales too much.

    Cons

    Zions is becoming bigger and cutting back on a lot of their bonuses and incentives. They just got rid of all training bonuses and Christmas bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be like Wells Fargo... see where it got them.

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time

    Pros

    Zions has great employees and opportunities to learn. It also is an honest company that truly cares about its customers.

    Cons

    FTE was low on the retail side causing employees to feel burnt out and difficult to focus on production.

    Advice to Management

    Lower the amount PBO's, and ASM's have to teller in order for them to focus on their sales goals and giving better focus and attention to clients.
