    I worked at Bank of the West full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Customers seemed to really like banking with Bank of the West. Friendly staff willing to try to help their employees.

    Cons

    Behind on technology. Everything was still processed with paper. Management was not experienced. A lot of the time management could not solve basic customer roblems without help from someone at a different branch Lack of direction for employees

    Advice to Management

    Train your CSM's better or hire people with more ability to run the operational side of the branch

    I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (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 Management

    -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
