Zions Bank is a very large place and the cultures can be different which depends on which department you are in. Department level changes can be quickly made, but Bank Wide policy changes will take years to transform.
Zions Bank recently purchased large software packages that still have many bugs to work through. Overall I think it is a nice place to work, but other banks will pay more.

Bankers hours, low stress environment, struggle to keep employees due to tight staffing and overworked retail staff. If internal processes improve can really take off, however, vision keeps changing and there is a lack of direction. Constant changes in organizational structure.
Work life balance, great people
Internal processes are too slow for approvals making clients suffer
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Provo, UT – January 25, 2017
Zions is excellent about allowing time for family. You don't have to work 60-80 work weeks. My dissatisfaction comes from my personal choice to remain in the Provo region where there is little opportunity for growth/mobility. If I lived nearer to central office I believe I would be far more satisfied as mobility is much easier there.
Bindery Operator (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – December 10, 2016
in this job i worked side by side with the press operators as well as the layout and design workers. We processed all the confidential as well as day to day forms for the bank. We then took them to the warehouse & they distributed them as ordered by the branches. My coworkers were all great to get along with. The management was never seen so, it was just under the supervision of the purchasing manager. the hardest part of the job was very minimal. you were taught all you needed and encouraged to try more.

Teller (Former Employee) – Richfield, UT – June 14, 2016
This job was extremely competitive. every week they would have meetings to see how many debit cards or credit cards you opened. and if you didn't open any, you lost hours to the people that were opening up debit cards. the pay wasn't much. and I only worked part time so no benefits were offered. the over all environment was very "sharky" because you job depended on opening up accounts and products, so sometimes they would "steal" your customers which caused a lot of tension in the work.
Loan Specialist (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – July 7, 2015
This job is not for someone looking for a challenge. It's data entry, basically. Every day is the same--sit down at a computer, check what there is to do, and do it. It requires no brainpower, and you sit all day. When I first started I was told that they didn't like to keep people in this position for long, since it's more of a starting point, yet there have been no opportunities to move up since I've started here.
VICE PRESIDENT, FINANCIAL CENTER MANAGER (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 5, 2015
I was happy working at Zions Bank. I had tried several times to advance but was always told I was 2nd in line. It seems like Senior Managers always have their decision made before the position posts and interviewing is just part of the show to make it look like they did what was needed. Working at Zions used to be a good stable career until mid 2014 when senior managers decided to make changes to become like the big banks. They are cutting a lot of positions and turning the bank into a sales environment vs service. They have forgotten who keeps them in business.
Some in Sr Management have lost sight of the client
Financial Center Manager (Former Employee) – utah – December 2, 2014
I gave 8 years of my life working for Zions Bank. I started as a Personal Banker and ended as a Branch Manager/Financial Center Manager.
Zions Bank is undergoing a Culture Shift. it is not the bank I started working for. over the last year, they started cutting back man hours and asking the managers to do more with less. they cut back the incentive program forcing us to double and in the last year triple our goals.
there is no work life balance to speak of now, and the worst job someone can take with this company now is a Branch Manager job. Of course they call it a Financial Center Manager now but it the same thing.
Further More the Region President in Northern Utah is more concerned about image and will hold you responsible for what customers say or do that are beyond your control. She doesn't care if the customer is flat out lying. the demands for Financial Center Manager are unreasonable and there are plenty of better places to work.
benefits, no work life balance, high presure sales job.
Commercial Relationship Manager (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – September 24, 2014
Zions Bank is a good place to work with a strong and loyal executive management team. The biggest downfall of Zions is its below market compensation and antiquated systems and culture. Despite these issues, i enjoyed working for Zions and have a great respect for the company and management from the business line to the executive management team.
