Pros

Bank of the west is a great company to work for if you are looking for flexibility. As an Underwriter you were allowed to set your own work hours (within reason) which is great for managing work and your personal life.

Cons

The current structure of management doesn't allow for open communication regarding changes in the Credit Department.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Doesn't seem to take advice or listen to suggestions from employees about improving processes.

    Pros

    Set schedule otherwise but besides that no pros.

    Cons

    Not that great benefits, little pay and training, honestly was not even worth a two weeks notice. Stressful. None of the team leads were any help and managers useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Up your pay, and do a better job at training. Can you say high turnover rate.

    Doesn't Recommend
