    Bit off more than they could chew with a large project that eventually had to be cancelled.
    Ran into a handful of very political people.
    Commute was far

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more focus on requirements definition and alternatives identification.
    Don't be in a hurry to staff up on the next large project and then have to let people go

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, some advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    If anyone is considering the capital markets group, I would say to think twice. The group is very cliquey and an atmosphere where people are looking out for themselves. I would go so far as to say it's a machiavellian work environment where people will only help another if they see some future benefit in their own action. Another major drawback of the group is a lack of accountability and clear responsibilities among senior and junior employees. Senior employees regularly throw junior employees under the bus. Senior employees also expect to take credit for junior employees projects. From what I found whatever a ranking Senior said goes, so if they do not like you, you will be gone.

    If you get an attractive offer that is too much to turn down that is one situation I can understand. Otherwise, if you're starting out or looking for a transitional role, I would avoid this group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Define employee responsibilities more clearly, eliminate vast conflicts of interest in the group structure.
