Current Employee - Branch Manager in Denver, CO

I have been working at Bank of the West full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

-Clearly set expectations
-Achievable goals
-Great recognition

Cons

-Salary is a constant struggle to people where they should be
-Goals come out late in the year
-Not all branches are created equal in appearance

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-If goals are going to be late do not make them retroactive
- Don't have maximums on raises. If you were hired as a teller it can mean that you are a lower earning manager when you finally make it.
-Get a standardized look to the branches

Recommends

Approves of CEO

    Former Employee - Vice President in San Ramon, CA

    I worked at Bank of the West full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    BoW has great benefits that are affordable.
    BoW does internal training for advancement and career development

    Cons

    BoW is owned by BNP Paribas and must have a specific profit to BNP requirements to remain a profitable investment.
    If the profits are not achieved they freeze raises and hiring to get the $ to France.
    Bonus selection is a joke
