    I worked at Union Bank N.A.

    Pros

    The company had great training, along with competitive salary

    Cons

    Sales goal for the branch and individually are very difficult to meet, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Every year the goals gets increased eventhough it wasn't met the previous years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes you're lucky that a manager will help you climb the ladder, but you really have to kiss butts.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A.

    Pros

    Many people work here for 20+ years. Employees are very loyal. Compensation equal to other banks. Bank is growing world wide.

    Cons

    Many people work here for 20+ years. Sometimes it's hard to get ahead when nobody ever leaves the dept. You have to be open to, and look for opportunities outside your immediate area. Some people,especially in management, have been doing things their own way for years and are resistant to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Bank is in flux and people are worried about job security. Be honest and help people find jobs within the Bank, if they are willing to move. The Brand is not there yet. Even on this website a search for MUFG/Union Bank, N.A. auto-corrects to Union Bank, N.A.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environmentally friendly company, committed to giving back to the local communities it serves. Great company culture, many seasoned employees have held various jobs within company. Comprehensive on-boarding procedures allow for easy transition into work environment and culture.

    Cons

    Outdated equipment and technology. Many technological and procedural redundancies. Lack of reliable access to job dependent information systems. IT errors caused clients to be unable to transact: via mobile device, online and over the phone. Compensatory issues, many seasoned employees would leave and work for competitors in order to be hired back at a competitive salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul IT, IT needs to add value for both internal and external customers. Investing in an operating system that can access all relevant information would create value, increasing reliability and ease of use. Resolution of compensatory issues would reduce costs and protect strategic information.

    Pros

    If you are specifically looking to get into the financial business career, this will fit you perfectly. But, if you're looking for an easy, laid-back job, this place is not for you. They are very friendly people but they don't take lightly to mistakes.

    Cons

    Too many rules for my liking but understandable

    Pros

    Most employees have a balanced home / work life. Except IT. They work long ridiculous hours. But at least they get paid well.

    Cons

    Bank is very conservative and beauracratic. Don't expect innovation. IT bogs down the entire bank.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are in school, they really work with your schedule so it works out.They have many oppurtunities to move up in the company but you must be willing hard to get there.

    Cons

    They don't take sales lightly. If you can't reach your sales on a weekly basis you are constantly being coached.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. part-time

    Pros

    It's pretty easy to advance within the company. It's very "family like" in its branches. You get quite a bit of freedom. This bank has many good products which makes them easy to sell. If you want to move up, and they see potential in you, they will help quite a bit. Good pay compared to other banks. Although the bank is small, it seems it has a lot of potential to become nationwide, meaning it's a good company to grow with.

    Cons

    Although it's easy to move up, it takes a WHILE. All tellers start at 20 hours, and more hours are somewhat difficult to pick up. After a year of being a teller, one may move to another position after training. Training is lacking, for the most part you are thrown directly into action as opposed to extensive training, which probably isn't the best when you deal with others' money. It's a small bank, only located in three states, so many customers are returning clients, making it slightly difficult for referring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice to management would definitely be to invest harder in training for EVERY title. The only thing I noticed standing Union Bank out from other banks is the lack of extensive training for bankers and tellers alike. It's fine to learn from mistakes, but probably not when dealing with ones finances.
