    Look somewhere else

    Vice President (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsJob Stability ...you really have to be dumb enough to get fired from Union Bank.

    ConsMost of the people in the marketing organization are pretty lame. They are there either because of politics or because they don't want to do much in their career. If you are ambitious, wants to grow fast and learn, look for some other organization. If you want to work in an organization which pays decent but where most of the people are not smart enough, then its the place to be in.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo and work for few months in a start-up and learn how they should run an organization. The bank is not changing fast enough to handle changing customer preferences. They are not a leader but rather a follower.

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

    Great company; poor management

    Relationship Manager (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsGreat company with growth potential. Product partner support...limited management support.

    ConsManagement has unrealistic goals, expectations, and processes to get desired result.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote managers from the field with real life experience. Those currently in management are too far removed and simply out of touch with reality.

    Good Company to work for

    Finance Manager (Former Employee) Los Angeles, CA

    ProsThe bank is one of the last banks in North America where people can begin and end their career in the same place.

    ConsWhen I left, there was a buyout by the Japanese shareholders and a lot of changes were going on. I am sure the dust has settled and a lot of people I knew are still there and still happy.
