    Great company. Well known in market. Great employees who are dedicated to their jobs.

    Staff cut backs greatly add to workload without lessening expectations of performance.

    Don't forget who keeps you in business.

    I worked at Zions Bank part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun work environment. Awesome coworkers. Benefits, paid time off, and paid holidays for part time workers. Having peak time tellers and personal bankers was a huge plus, IF we could get one to our branch.

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed. One time I literally peed my pants because we were so understaffed and overworked, I couldn't take a bathroom break. Not much opportunity for growth unless you went to back office.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more tellers for your busy branches. We were constantly running around like crazy because we never had enough tellers, even getting lunches done was difficult. I frequently couldn't take lunch until past 4PM. Like I said above, I couldn't even take bathroom breaks because we were slammed constantly.

    Pros

    Excellent training and career opportunities.

    Cons

    Too many information systems. I had to access 10 different systems to get the information I needed. I know they are working on fixing this.

    Great work environment and opportunities for promotion. Community focused corporate environment.

    Cons

    I have no negative experiences at Zions Bank, but I'm sure this might not be the case for everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Make mentorship programs available to employees at all levels.

    Pros

    Reasonable benefits for individuals, not for families. Easy to float and not have to be productive.

    Cons

    Not for talented, hardworking people, best for floaters who just want to keep a seat warm. Talented folks get ostracized. Lots and lots of politics, very passive-aggressive culture, Passive aggressiveness is reinforced by management and HR. Lots of not very bright (although nice if not among the passive-aggressive) people. Very few bright, hard-working, talented folks,

    Advice to Management

    Get your culture in order. Stop driving out or laying off good people and get rid of the floaters. Practice the integrity you preach.

    Pros

    Great people in this corporation.

    Cons

    Very Bureaucratic. Not a lot of innovative initiative so it's hard to excel in marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Let people from the bottom push ideas through. A brilliant idea can come from any mind.

    Pros

    Not a very high stress environment, and the culture and people are typically very friendly and open. Hours are good.

    Cons

    The company is behind with regards to technology and processes, and in my opinion is somewhat stagnant. The benefits they give you make you feel like they're giving you just enough to keep you there, but not really more than that.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate teams better to work towards common goal. Update software and other technology to be more user friendly. Offer better benefits, especially for long term employees.

    Pros

    People come here and usually stay. We have a strong market presence and some of the best people.

    Cons

    Frustrating growing pains and quite possibly the worst health benefits in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Get it right sooner rather than later
