Do your research before applying

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThere are some great people employed there that are willing to share knowledge and experiences and not be threatened that a individual will steal their job. Unfortunately, those individual are sparse throughout the organization.

ConsUnfortunately, very much run by and still practices the "good ol' boy system" Extremely poor pay with poor benefits to match

Advice to Senior ManagementRetire the good ol' boys and modernize the company into the 21st century. Tenure does automatically suggest quality. Sometimes a tenured individual can simply be taking up valuable space, contributing nothing great, hindering another valuable asset in the form of an employee.

It would be better if the managers weren't so awful

Teller (Current Employee)
Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at Amegy Corporation

ProsYou get 2 weeks vacation. Which is more than most other places right off the bat. I was able to do a lot of school work also. But that's about it.

ConsThe managers suck! They have no management skills whatsoever. If you give them an suggestion or express concern about a fellow employee, they automatically go into defensive mode and won't listen to what you are saying.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Not everything is a fight. You are not getting attacked when we tell you something. So grow up and accept that suggestions given to you.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Sweatshop with weird, manipulative management. High turnover with certain members of the management, worrying.

ConsLack of communication with senior management and lack of avenues for future growth.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep abreast of what is going on within the ranks and keep track of managers with high turnovers, they are a huge flag.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
