    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Management is super flexible with activities, as long as you show results. I wasn't micromanaged at all and was motivated to do better every day. They pay well for the little that's expected of you.

    Cons

    Not the place for a new banker who has no connections or clients to ask for referrals. You can't sit at this bank and wait for business to walk in. You must be prepared to pound the pavement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management in retail banking is solid. They don't need to change in my opinion.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    During my short stint at Union Bank, I enjoyed the work, the environment, and the people I interacted with daily. Environment was very laid-back and friendly. Contractors were treated as part of the team. Telecommuting was allowed. Free Peets coffee.

    Cons

    Senior management seemed slow in decision making, and there seemed to be a bit of bureaucratic red tape going on. Fortunately, I was not directly impacted by any of it. Also, technology is pretty antiquated and could stand to be upgraded (i.e. still using old overlay technology for customer letters, still on Windows XP, etc.).

    Pros

    I love working for Union Bank. I used to work for Chase and I love this bank so much better. This bank definitely cares about you more than Chase does. My region is the best to work for.

    Cons

    We are going through some transitions and it's been a little confusing for the people in the branches.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Union Bank is well positioned in the California market with strong leadership. They are investing in technology and process upgrades which are making employee and customer's lives easier. The culture and senior management are highly concerned about customer service so that is a priority.

    Cons

    With change will come some amount of angst for those who are not willing to change. If you come from a larger bank or larger company, you will experience an entrepreneurial spirit that will be new. You will need to learn to execute at a higher level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper Management should continue to live and exhibit the values of the company. Communication to the employees about the changes will be key a successful organization.
