    I worked at Bank of the West

    Pros

    The best reasons for working for Bank of the West are a balance of work-life issues, the ability to move within different departments, the teamwork and communication amongst co-workers, and general respect from others outside the organization when I told them that I worked at Bank of the West.

    Whenever I needed to take time off my manager was always understanding and allowed the necessary time off. Also, my maanger was not a micro-maanger and trusted that his people would get the job done and done right.

    Cons

    Some of the downsides would be the level of salaries and slow reaction to to ideas for improvement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees recommendations for improvement.
