Great Bank for banking, horrible place to work.

(Current Employee) Omaha, NE

ProsGood benefits and incentives, great people to work with, bank is great with customers.

ConsManagers will micro-manage you right down to your bathroom breaks. If you meet goals the set them to impossible standards. Very little recognition for a job well done. For every 10 things you do great they will find 50 things you do wrong or not up to their tedious standards and expectations. You are constantly being threatened with your job if you don't reach these goals and expectations.

Advice to Senior ManagementI challenge management to come and do our jobs for a quarter, with their expectations and goals that they have set and see if you can get it all accomplished. There isn't enough hours in the day and if you want all these tedious, ridiculous, and over exaggerated tasks done, then pay us the overtime to do it. If not, then trust that most employees are giving 100% of their best, to be the best at our jobs and reward us for that.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A better alternative for second career

    Insurance Specialist (Former Employee) San Ramon, CA

    I worked at Bank of the West full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: This company is backed up by a good mother company. Cons: Not a good place to make a lot of money. Advice to Senior Management: Promote deserving rank and file employees rather than giving them… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
