I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Bank of the West offers a warm, welcoming atmosphere to customers. I felt that one could easily build upon relationships with customers, considering that most foot-traffic consisted of returning clients.

Cons

Considering the responsibilities and expectations that Bank of the West has of its employees, I did not feel that the compensation given is fair. Despite hard work and effort, I didn't feel that the support for advancement was fully genuine.

    Pros

    This is a solid company with great values and ambitions to grow and improve.

    Cons

    San Ramon location is a bit of communita if you must take 680 South. However, they have great campus and caffeteria.

    Bad management. Do not reward the rank and file.

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

    Pros

    reasonable work life balance. Nothing else.

    Cons

    No career prospect. Don't expect your contribution to be appreciated if you are not in the inner circle or if you do not BS. Layers and layers of unnecessary management. A lot of people do not deserve to be in the management level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    REDUCE GREATLY the number of management layer. Have 360 degree feedback. Treat the people who do the actual work with more respect and rewards. The Bank really does not need so many talking managers.
