    Not that bad

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBanking experience and free parking downtown. Most of the people are very nice.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better insurance plans and show your employees you appreciate them and their hard work by giving better raises.

    Personal Banker

    Personal Banker (Former Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsThe hours and work life balance.

    ConsSales tactics and numbers to meet. Pay scale varied to much from branch to branch. I started at 38k a good friend of mine started at 44k with the same position, and similar back ground in the field. Continued to tell me that I could not move up in the company because I had no direct management experience. Would not allow me to attempt or train me. Hired from without the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEquality in pay across the board, revamp sales tactics. I asked specificly when I got hired if they hired within and when it came time to it they hired all new ASM from other financial institution.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Little room for growth

    Business Analyst (Current Employee) Houston, TX (US)

    ProsMost people are friendly and respect each other. The company tried not to hire new employees so there is little chance that they will lay off a person if they are no longer needed. They will move an employee somewhere whenever possible. There is plenty of training for retail employees. Management is willing to listen and consider employee feedback. There is a new employee review system that will take effect pretty soon.

    ConsIf you are one of the many employees that was not a banker/finance major, you have little room for personal growth or advancement. There is little trust between management and employees at the corporate and back office level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeleive in your employees more.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

     

    Great Company that promote.s work/life balance and very keen in the community.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsBenefits are okay, the work is interesting with advancement opportunities in Business Banking. Amazing leaders that walk their talk. I see myself learning lots of processes for lending opportunities. Really excited to be a part of the Amegy Bank team.

    ConsCompany promotes working with internal partners that are experts at what they do. This is a really good concept if partners work well together. If one has not worked in this type on intense partnership internally, it could be an adjustment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job with a positive environment and being available to your teams for their feedback. The only one thing that I can think of is to bridge the gap internally with partners and this could empower each and every employee to keep clients in the center and run with what needs to be done for them without worrying about anything else.
