Former Employee – worked at Union Bank N.A.
Pros – There are a lot of very good hard working individuals at Union Bank and there is always someone (not management) within your group that is willing to help out if needed. The hours are also very flexible.
Cons – It seems that every time I needed assistance from management they were no where to be found or would have their office door shut indicating do not disturb or currently in a meeting. I always found this odd when "a favorite" would enter the office like they were visiting a close relative. There is definitely favoritism within the units of UB. It doesn't matter how long you've worked there the same individuals (the favs) are usually the ones getting promoted. The work atmosphere is almost robotic as it seems the highest of importance to management is spitting out those numbers. In the daily life as an employee of UB there was no such thing as an 8hr day! What ever happened to quality before quantity? There is no room for mistakes in the world of BSA/AML and when one is pushed beyond exhaustion to spit out the daily/monthly numbers there is bound to be some mistakes! Rushing = mistakes! It's not what you know at UB it's who's a** you kiss and who you know! I've been working in this field since 2001 and very knowledgable; however I wasn't about to rush through my work. I believe as long as you are within BSA/AML compliance time frames you are doing what is best for the bank. I didn't sign up for data entry, I'm a certified anti money laundering specialist!
Advice to Senior Management – This message is to upper management NOT management within a unit. I recommend interviewing each employee on the fairness within the departments. I suggest asking those that have NOT been promoted why that is. I would also take a close look at how work is distributed because it certainly is not distributed evenly. Believe it or not it seems the NON FAVS have been set up for failure. If you want your employees to be happy, and perform at their best, bring in some new computers. You can't spit out high daily numbers on a prehistoric computer! Meanwhile the new-bees have new equipment and management wonders why their seasoned employees are producing less than them. Well, thats because they need a new computer! I can't stress how many times my dinosaur would freeze causing daily numbers to decrease. Teach unit managers to pay attention to the needs of their staff and not just their favorites! I loved loved loved my job however unit management knew just how to destroy that for me. Thanks for reading!
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
