    Pros

    Great place to work for if you value acknowledgement and are always looking to grow within the company.

    Cons

    There are a lot of sales goals to meet, pressure can be high at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees a priority as much as the money is.

    I have been working at Zions Bank part-time

    Pros

    The retail support program is perfect for college students who need flexibility in their jobs. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    The pay isn't as good for tellers at Zions. Other Banks pay more and have more relaxed tuition reimbursement programs. The systems are old, but a newer one is supposed to be in the works.

    Advice to Management

    Invest some time in helping the next generation. Mentor someone. Try to take a special interest in someone you can help through your experience. Do it if they plan to stick with Zions or if they want to go somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great people that desire to help you move forward in a mutually beneficial way.

    Cons

    Terrible staffing with insanely high turnover rates. The bank is going through modernization, and is having huge growing pains. Health insurance is terrible, 401k matching isn't bad at all.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the critiques of your employees, especially client-facing.

    I have been working at Zions Bank as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very interesting work in technology, smart and motivated people, successful bank

    Cons

    Management and supervisors often change roles, technology infrastructure is dispersed and not always functional between different business units.

    Advice to Management

    Provide career path for senior managers, don't blame those who are trying to implement management vision when going over budget or time; often times the project or product was poorly conceived. Be good listeners.

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

    Pros

    You get to create a culture with your regional team that reflects your beliefs, strategy, growth goals. Autonomy exists but this more a reflection of the lack of clear direction.

    Cons

    The leaders of the Bank are out of touch with the market, adopt a risk-averse strategy, and believe the company is far better than it actually is. I expect it to be subject to a takeover within the next 5-10 years

    Advice to Management

    Look at your leadership team. The individuals. The religious beliefs. The average age. Evolve or die is fundamental to finance & we are rapidly falling behind the leading pack.

    I have been working at Zions Bank full-time

    Pros

    Ability to work with local companies and employees. Feel valued and not just a number in the corporate machine.

    Cons

    The company has had several large structural changes. Company standing is still healthy, but the ability to adapt to new changes is a must.

    Advice to Management

    Get wider group involvement in procedural and structural changes. Those working in the field can help provide some critical insight.

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

    Pros

    The team is very easy going and willing to help their employees. There is ample training opportunities for growth. One can definitely grow here

    Cons

    Compensations and benefits are not attractive to any employee. The premiums for health insurance are too high. I'm guessing this it true with other companies?

    Advice to Management

    Upper management tend to overlook the needs for their employees. I get it it's the banks policy to cater to customers but they should also take care of their employees

    Pros

    Good company culture, reasonable benefits, large enough bank to move laterally

    Cons

    Pay isn't the best compared to other financial institutions but work/life balance is probably better than most, too

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

    Pros

    Great co-workers. pay and compensation is about right for the job. Management does appear to care and work with you to move up in the company.

    Cons

    Health insurance plans are not that great. Many branches will not allow you to sit as a teller. Limited flexibility with working hours since new company hiring policy.

    Advice to Management

    Zions is great in that it is fairly autonomous on the branch level; however, management and general bank bureaucracy has been getting more bloated; i.e., working around schedules. I would suggest to management to allow branch managers to manage their branches.
