    A good starting place within commercial banking.

    Account Executive (Current Employee)

    Pros- The management staff is very supportive and create a good environment for employees.
    - Decent benefits, including covering commuting costs such as metro/parking.
    - A low pressure atmosphere; in saying this, you are obviously expected to get your work done and be a good employee, but management isn't going to be constantly micromanaging.

    Cons- There isn't always a clear pathway for promotion and the process for promotion can take much longer than it should. The company should take a much better look at their younger employees before interviewing outsiders for positions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementOverall Pacific Western Bank (CapitalSource) has been a great place to work. I would recommend evaluating the younger talent within the company before looking at outside candidates for open positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hard to get up and go to work in the Phoenix Office

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsPay is good and benefits are awesome.

    ConsI enjoy what I do, but the atmosphere in the Phoenix office is uncaring as long as they meet their goals. Other employees walk by you in the hall and don't even say Hi, even your own supervisor! You dont get a morning break and sometimes lunch isn't until 2pm - but your supervisor may leave around noon or so to have lunch. What leadership message is that sending?

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you aquire another company, send an "undercover boss" to that location to make sure the company is working ethically with ALL employees. Lots of favortism/discrimination in the this office. When upper management comes from CA, out come the polite and caring side of Phoenix management for that day. Hopefully this gets better soon.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
