    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked in two different departments; one was very hectic and poorly managed, the other (that I currently work in) is generally low stress and very well managed.

    Cons

    Right before I started they increased their interdepartment hiring wait time from six months to one year so now I'm looking at other options because I don't want to wait.

    Advice to Management

    You will lose lots of talent by making people stay in their department an extra six months before applying. Yours truly included.

    Pros

    This work environment has an excellent work/life balance. People are genuinely nice and want to help each other.

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy (but that is expected at a bank). There are a lot of employees here who have worked at Zions Bank for 10+ years, so it can take a long time for new employees to get promoted.

    Pros

    Higher wages than regular tellers

    Cons

    Seriously unorganized, bad management, difficult mileage reimbursement policy, no face to face contact with management.

    Advice to Management

    Get your scheduling act together and spend more time developing a relationship with your employees.

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

    Pros

    I work with great people who seem to care. Unfortunately it stops there.

    Cons

    Management wants to make a name for themselves and they do so at the expense of great people, and great departments. It's always about the bottom line and bankers are asked to sell sell sell. Zions used to be about relationships. Not anymore. Clients are leaving the bank and finding better service at Credit Unions.

    Don't even

    Advice to Management

    You cannot rely on a top brand anymore. Relationships still matter. Hire great people and give them all the tools necessary to retain our great clients, find more great clients, and grow. Isn't that what you really want? Growth? Quit making it so hard. You are going to find that your best and most capable employees who bring a ton to the table are going to find another job where they feel valued, and are provided the right tools to succeed. I hope things change for the better because I used to like working here. Now, not so much!

    Pros

    Family friendly, community involvement, good hours, solid people in most areas, numerous areas of expertise to work in throughout your career

    Cons

    Company doesn't seem to have a singular direction and feels like a bunch of independent groups working against each other

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus on the single goal to improve customers experience and use of the company

    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.
