Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership is what really makes this a great place to work. They do a great job of communicating to the company regardless of whether it is a critical change to the organization or whether it is just a note of thanks. As I mentioned before, they do take employee feedback seriously and try to take their opinions into consideration.

    I have been working at Amegy Corporation

    Pros

    A solid company which generally seems to have integrity for the most part. Has local values that the customers can identify with.

    Cons

    The goals can be unrealistic and there isn't much communication from the top to the bottom. Horrible benefits. Other than that, there isn't a whole lot of cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees more and find other ways to cut costs. There is plenty of fat to be trimmed elsewhere other than employee bonuses or other compensation.

    Great place to work but many false promises and quirky management.

    I worked at Amegy Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn and gain experience. Learning and development courses keep employees up to date.

    Cons

    If manager doesn't go to bat for you during bonus time, you could find yourself without. Annual compensation raises average between 1-3%. Promotions are based on tenure at company and not work output. Very political work environment where other employees will not hesitate to throw you under the bus to move ahead. Managers would prefer you be at your desk for 8+ hours a day doing nothing rather than work output and performance. Younger employees with less experience work harder than more senior level employees. Micro-management is a big negative and upper level management would rather delegate work than do it themselves. Managers promise employees things that never materialize.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With older more seasoned employees working longer, its increasingly difficult for younger employees to move up in the company. Not everyone is meant to manage and lead other employees. It seems many managers are where they are because of how long they have been with the company. New employees hired with same job title should not make $20,000 more a year than similar employee with significantly more experience.
