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

Pros

They are a bank with a solid footing and a sound appreciation for their customers. Good working atmosphere.

Cons

Communication seems to eddy at the senior management level, trickling down more slowly than is optimal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In a project and knowledge based environment, it is important for communications to flow. Share more about new projects and priority realignments with the senior staff.
