Pros

Friendly environment to work in. Good staff and managers for the retail branches. 90% of the clientele are awsome.

Cons

Not enough growth opportunity/ not enough pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Some of the bank regulations put in place are too stingent and no other banks use them b/c it is a private bank.

    The best way to describe OWB is by calling it “Fogged Mirror’s” .

    Pros

    Its a JOB and we all need to pay our bills.

    Cons

    OneWest Bank is a hedge fund disguised as a bank. It’s what hedge funds do. They buy a foreclosure, slap a fresh coat of paint, put in a new kitchen sink, manicure the lawn and put a “for sales” sign outside. They sell it and make a profit and move on to the next best calculated investment. Most MC members are non bankers trying to figure out how this works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out while you can.

    Pros

    Some talented leadership if you can work for the right manager.

    Cons

    Lots of down time, employees get bored easily. Glass ceiling. Not much room for upward growth and mobility. Not flexible. Don't plan on telecommuting EVER.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to engaged your employees and listen to their input. They are on the front lines and may have valuable input!
