    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Zions Bank has an extraordinary philosophy regarding its employees. They care about each and every one of us and strive to make our workplace the best it can possibly be. I believe they are top notch and really care.

    Cons

    None. Zions is always reaching out to its employees for recommendations on how to make things better. I've never worked for a company that cares so much.

    Advice to Management

    Continue listening to employees. It is making a positive difference and sets us apart from the other banks.

    Pros

    Zions is highly dedicated to career development; from executive leadership to divisional leadership, the message of "coaching career development" is clear and consistent. The company has a great tuition reimbursement program and strives to retain talent by means of mentor programs, job shadowing and leadership development series. Zions prides itself in community outreach programs and events which essentially adds a sense of value for its employees that participate.

    Cons

    Over my tenure, if I had to think of a con I would have to say the systems, however my entire time with the bank there have been several milestones completed. The bank is on a mission to enhance all systems across all divisions.

    Pros

    When I was first hired, I never knew I'd stay at the bank as long as I have, but the people are amazing and make it a great workplace. They put their money where they're mouth is when they say they're involved in community and care. Lots of opportunities for career development, leadership and management training. Great culture and commitment to diversity and inclusion. Supportive of work-life balance.

    Cons

    big organization takes time to understand/navigate

    Advice to Management

    Continue attracting top talent

    Pros

    Ethical bank, great people to work with, management tries to keep you informed as to what is happening at all levels.

    Cons

    Historically Zions has not been very forth coming to meet the salaries that are paid by other banks. This has been improving.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, great leadership, you feel supported in your role, generally nice and fun coworkers, benefits are getting better

    Cons

    Benefits aren't always as good as other places, but they're working on it. Not always a lot of budget to learn new things or go to conferences, but they do a lot of in house training

    Provide excellent family/work balance. Really enjoy all of the people I work with. CEO, Scott Anderson, makes himself available to employees and upper management really want to hear from employees and consider new ideas. Community focused.

    Pros

    A Bank with strong foundations and the potential for significantly increasing market share if it adopts a more progressive culture and is prepared to take calculated risks

    Cons

    Innovation occurs at a slow rate which, when and if implemented, leaves us in a state of inertia. We can't continue to celebrate what we did 10/20/40 years ago. We have to get back to leading our market & placing trust in the leaders of the future

    Advice to Management

    Flexible schedule, wonderful bright enthusiastic colleagues, CEO is amazing and my boss is the best.

    Cons

    Conservative culture is slow to change. The affiliate structure creates a lot of unnecessary back and forth on decision making.
