    You have the ability to grow within the company. Also provides you flexable schedules.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most employees have a balanced home / work life. Except IT. They work long ridiculous hours. But at least they get paid well.

    Cons

    Bank is very conservative and beauracratic. Don't expect innovation. IT bogs down the entire bank.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are in school, they really work with your schedule so it works out.They have many oppurtunities to move up in the company but you must be willing hard to get there.

    Cons

    They don't take sales lightly. If you can't reach your sales on a weekly basis you are constantly being coached.

    I have been working at Union Bank N.A. part-time

    Pros

    It's pretty easy to advance within the company. It's very "family like" in its branches. You get quite a bit of freedom. This bank has many good products which makes them easy to sell. If you want to move up, and they see potential in you, they will help quite a bit. Good pay compared to other banks. Although the bank is small, it seems it has a lot of potential to become nationwide, meaning it's a good company to grow with.

    Cons

    Although it's easy to move up, it takes a WHILE. All tellers start at 20 hours, and more hours are somewhat difficult to pick up. After a year of being a teller, one may move to another position after training. Training is lacking, for the most part you are thrown directly into action as opposed to extensive training, which probably isn't the best when you deal with others' money. It's a small bank, only located in three states, so many customers are returning clients, making it slightly difficult for referring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advice to management would definitely be to invest harder in training for EVERY title. The only thing I noticed standing Union Bank out from other banks is the lack of extensive training for bankers and tellers alike. It's fine to learn from mistakes, but probably not when dealing with ones finances.

    Pros

    Good benefits/insurance, banking holidays off.

    Cons

    No growth, and it looks like they're going to close this place. They've let people go, canceled a planned 2 million dollar renovation of our building, and everybody is watching over their shoulders. I believe the writing is on the wall.

    Pros

    Conservative bank that appreciates non revenue generating lines of business such as risk, compliance, and regulatory work. Thats pretty rare to see.

    Cons

    Organizational heiarchy is huge and most employees are heiarchially sensitive. The bank can benefit from by being more flat and more productive rather than working in silos, duplicating work, etc just to move on "up".

    I worked at Union Bank N.A.

    Pros

    work life balance is nice here, there is always a push for sales, but it is balanced with customer service. communication with upper management is easy. Nice base salary, giving is huge in the company and so is community service. Health insurance for the employee start from day 1 and are paid by the company 100%, the family is added after 30 days I believe, and they pay for life insurance to match your salary at no cost to the employee. Executive management is consistently asking for feedback from the teams.

    Cons

    Very few cons, this is a nice company to work for. The majority of the marketing is done for California and if you work in the PNW it is almost like an after thought. Bonus is there, but you have to get loans booked to make money & loans are hard to get approved. lack of locations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I only gave a negative outlook because of the branch closures happening now. Once it gets closer to new offices opening, the outlook could be very good. I do not look back on my time at UB with any regret. Keep up the good things & continue getting feedback from your teams.

    Pros

    Excellent atmosphere to work with and employees always provided utmost respect and services to fellow employees.

    Cons

    The downsizing parts of course but it's the nature of the business to make the company most profitable for shareholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management continuously communicated with employees the upcoming business movements good or bad and reminded to provide excellent goods and services to customers.
