    Pros

    the people are great to work with, good attitudes all around. I have found people here are always happy to help.

    Cons

    The people are often very busy so it is hard when trying to schedule meetings and such. Commute is a drag.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. It seems to be that things are going well for the company and you are well positioned for growth.

    Pros

    I have been impressed with the management. The ones I've had the opportunity to work with seem to have a great balance between their work and personal lives, excellent senses of humor, and great leadership qualities that inspire loyalty, personal growth, and performance. I love my co-workers. They're genuine and look out for the customers unlike what I've seen at some of the other big banks, who look to sell first.

    Cons

    Technology has been an issue, We need to learn older systems and despite being so linked with a Japanese company, we seem to have some uncharacteristically poor systems to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Technology! Please invest in it! The people here at Union Bank are amazing. Give them better tools to succeed and be more efficient.

    Pros

    Stable, respected company that takes care of its employees. Even though there are a lot of employees, I worked hard and was well taken care.

    Cons

    Not a lot of turnover in my department which made it difficult to get title promotions. Average tenure of employee was around 15+ years.

  6. Outdated systems and only recruit outside talent

    Company does want to become a leader within the industry.

    Cons

    Mid-level management lacking actual work experience compared to the employees actually doing the work. Managers placed in roles that they were not qualified which hampered employee moral and work enjoyment.

    Pros

    The company had great training, along with competitive salary

    Cons

    Sales goal for the branch and individually are very difficult to meet, it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Every year the goals gets increased eventhough it wasn't met the previous years.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes you're lucky that a manager will help you climb the ladder, but you really have to kiss butts.
