I worked at OneWest Bank full-time

Pros

A regular paycheck.
Nice area to go out and eat lunch.
Some really nice people to work with at the lower levels.

Cons

Complete morons! The blind leading the stupid. The place is ruled by fear and intimidation. Every day employees have their souls sucked from them. You might as well leave your brain at the door because if you try to use it, you put yourself in danger. This leaves a company full of unquestioning order-takers who don't have the spirit and enthusiasm to ever take the company to the next level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Survey your employees and get a baseline for how angry and frustrated and burned out they are to be working for your company. However, don't do the survey unless you are committed to taking positive action. Otherwise, you'll just encouragement more dissension in the ranks.

    Pros

    Company pays well for the amount of work. Fellow coworkers are great and helpful. The positions offered are many with great variety.

    Cons

    The company does not allow for much growth and management will throw you under the bus whenever possible. Little thing are thrown out of proportion.

    I have been working at OneWest Bank

    Pros

    Coworkers want to make a difference

    Cons

    Court like culture where intimidation is an acceptable motivator.
    Senior management is more impressed with themselves than focused on attracting business. Unclear direction and contradictory information creates confusion and low morale. Finger pointing vs solution oriented approach to problem solving abounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a close look at your employee turn over figures in the three years this entity has existed. Your title does not entitle you to condescend to and belittle your subordinates. Simple words like please and thank you cost nothing. Ask yourselves if you would like to be treated the same way you treat others. Conduct exit interviews. Would you allow someone to treat your recent college graduate child the way you treat those who work for you?
