    Pros

    I worked in the Merchant Bank and had the opportunity to participate in making both direct and fund investments. Excellent opportunity to gain transaction experience.

    Cons

    At the time the board of directors was very risk averse and as a result our group was unable to make some attractive investments.

    Pros

    I have been impressed with the management. The ones I've had the opportunity to work with seem to have a great balance between their work and personal lives, excellent senses of humor, and great leadership qualities that inspire loyalty, personal growth, and performance. I love my co-workers. They're genuine and look out for the customers unlike what I've seen at some of the other big banks, who look to sell first.

    Cons

    Technology has been an issue, We need to learn older systems and despite being so linked with a Japanese company, we seem to have some uncharacteristically poor systems to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Technology! Please invest in it! The people here at Union Bank are amazing. Give them better tools to succeed and be more efficient.
