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

    Pros

    Professional education is constantly pushed to non management positions.

    Cons

    There isn't a clear focus on how they want to grow the bank as they are closing branches on a regular basis just as the economy is rebounding.

    I worked at Bank of the West full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good atmosphere and people to work with. Good culture and values.

    Cons

    It is a old school bank. Uses very old and outdated technology. It is very difficult to make any change and make processes improvements because most people are afraid of change in this bank. Managers micro-manage you and career opportunities are very less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please spent some money to update your system, hire more efficient people and care about employees.
