    I have been working at OneWest Bank full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Management is very knowledgeable and experienced. They do a great job of balancing leadership and employee relationships. Good enough pay, good incentive, awesome co-workers and work environment for the most part.

    Cons

    Pay could be better and is better with other companies with similar jobs.
    Job security is not guaranteed.
    Bonuses could be better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better bonuses, incentives, and compensation and there will be very little turn over. Other than that, keep up the good work!

  2. Awesome work experience

    I worked at OneWest Bank part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Like other reviews have said, they're like a startup company with very open and collaborative culture and environment. A pleasure to work with the team I was in.

    Cons

    The bank is going through some changes right now with a merger and changes that will likely come due to it.

    Pros

    Great people, seems like during the transition from IndyMac only the best people remained. Nice work-life balance, no micromanagment. Management doing the best they can to allow you to develop yourself according to your interests.

    Cons

    Conservative culture (well, it's a bank), company is still in transition from mortgage bank to commercial bank.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing in terms of employee relations. In terms of strategy, I have no idea

    Pros

    Through the ruins of three failed Banks, out came a diamond in the rough. Joseph Otting and Steven Mnuchin have built a Senior Leadership team that set the tone for OneWest's Business Principles.

    OneWest is a great place to learn and grow with promotional opportunites through out the Company.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider expanding the Company's primary volunteer opportunities to organizations other than just Junior Achievement.
