    Pros

    Good company. Treats its people nice.

    Cons

    After the Japanese MUFG bought it has been undergoing slow transition. Its ambitions are to become a top 10 national bank. It will get there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the course

    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

    Great stability compared to working for tech company. Pay is decent if you're up in the ranks. Great work-life balance. Some exciting changes to the bank/management is in the pipeline.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Typical corporate politics. Management definitely needs to do an assessment of current workforce. HR is not resourceful or supportive at all.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider re-looking into benefits and comp plans, what are you doing to retain your best talent?

    Pros

    If management likes you and you work hard you could go far. 401k contribution, wellness incentive, health insurance, vacation based on tenure and title.

    Cons

    Trying too hard to compete is causing employees to leave due to fear of losing their job. Too many changes at once

    Advice to Management

    Change can be good, but not when it forces talented people out. Stop making employees fear for their job. Invest in your employees by making them feel safe so they want to invest in the bank. Also: One campaign at a time.
