    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.

    I have been working at Zions Bank part-time

    Pros

    This is an up and coming company that is really started to grow.

    Cons

    Because they are growing they are trying to cut back on costs and sometimes that hurts the branches by not getting the enough funds to fully staff or a lot of upkeep in the branches.

    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!


  10. "Former employee"

    I worked at Zions Bank full-time

    Pros

    Most Employees who work there are really great and welcoming. Great place to work for the most part

    Cons

    Some middle managers like the feel of power. The Bank can be very cliquish and if you aren't part of the crowd you won't fit in or move up

    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.
