    Pros

    The company is heavily involved in supporting the local community.

    Cons

    Horrible benefits. Low pay. Management slashes any financial benefits to their employees in order to improve their bottom line. Recently cut Christmas bonuses because they "didn't have the appetite" for them, despite stock prices being on the rise. Limited advancement opportunities. Only care about numbers, not employees. Horrible morale around the office.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who keeps you in business. It's not just your customers. Show gratitude to your employees by acknowledging their hard work through financial reward.

    Lots of room for advancement, great people, work environment, work from home option, flexible, care about their employees, goal and team oriented, incentives, benefits, paid holidays, vacation, sick pay, 401K, health and dental.

    Health insurance could be better with lower deductibles. However, the premiums are reasonably priced.

    Look into better heath insurance that provides lower deductibles.

    Pros

    The job itself is wonderful. It's a great opportunity to learn new things while utilizing current skill-set. There is room for growth within the position.

    Cons

    Management is sorely lacking. Direct supervisor doesn't put the needs of employees first. He is forgetful and pushes personnel issues back on the staff. Additionally, he plays games with merit increases. Says you're eligible for bonuses, increases - then conveniently forgets to put them through. There is no guideline on paper that states what you're eligible for - so no way to hold management accountable. Been here under two years and four people have left because of these games.
    Benefits are the worst I've ever seen. Their medical coverage is a joke - Aetna and Cigna plans are laughable. The vision is okay. The dental is awful, awful, horrible. It's set up on a 50% reimbursement - and they charge you $7-$12 just to have that "benefit". Additionally, if you try to use HSA funds to cover your half, you forfeit your dental benefits.
    My suggestion is to ask for a high salary - that's the only way to afford to survive.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious about caring about your employees. Pay them well and give them great benefits. Being cheap and cutting corners makes good people leave.
    Recognize that good sales people don't make good managers. Someone shouldn't be offered a management position without having a proven successful track record.

    I worked at Zions Bank part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Plenty of on the job training required to know what you are doing. Flexible scheduling and was able to work while in college.

    Cons

    Financial center staffs have been cut drastically. Too many people to help and not enough staff to help them. Getting more and more focused on credit card and home equity sales, yet will hardly compete in the Car loan area.

    Advice to Management

    A clients first impression of your entire business depends on their experience at your financial centers. Working as a teller here was extremely stressful and my family has noticed how much happier I am to not have that stress. Focus more money on your busy financial centers. Not just the ones that have huge credit accounts.
