    Pros

    Training, decent salary, good work environment. I have enjoyed working there. Company has various rotation programs if working internationally is important.

    Cons

    Lack of short term strategy. Some upper management could be better. A lot of recent employment changes to accomodate growth at upper ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Promote well qualified employees internally and get both a short term and long term strategy that is cohesive and achievable. Need to improve on internal system technology.

    Pros

    No overtime. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Senior management shielding incompetent older employees that are just waiting for retirement. It's about who you know and not what you can do. No more pension plan.

    Pros

    Union Bank is a secure place to work. The benefits are good albeit standard for banks these days. The people are generally pleasant and the office is clean.

    Cons

    It is a large company that at some times seems slow to make changes. Some systems could use an upgrade. Moral is questionable due to turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, less conference calls, less outside consultants. More catered lunches. Clothing allowance. More health insurance options. Create better partnerships with MUFG.
