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

    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.

    Higher wages than regular tellers

    Cons

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

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

    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

    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

    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.

    Invest in your employees

    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
