    Pros

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

    There is a big time commitment at first. Although I work part time, I had to commit full time for two weeks which got be behind in school.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. (less than a year)

    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.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A.

    Pros

    Benefits package has got to be one of the most competitive out there. They are very solid on 401k as well as still offering a pension plan. There were also just a bunch of little perks that popped up here and there.
    Great culture and friendly people
    A lot of upside as they seek to grow and expand across the country
    IT was great: I don't know if I was just lucky to not face a lot of IT issues, but the few I had were resolved quickly and efficiently.

    Cons

    The expansion seems like it is moving along a little slowly. They are Japanese owned which means they tend to be very cautious, which can be a good thing to an extent but also makes it so that some initiatives take forever to implement.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Management is super flexible with activities, as long as you show results. I wasn't micromanaged at all and was motivated to do better every day. They pay well for the little that's expected of you.

    Cons

    Not the place for a new banker who has no connections or clients to ask for referrals. You can't sit at this bank and wait for business to walk in. You must be prepared to pound the pavement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management in retail banking is solid. They don't need to change in my opinion.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    During my short stint at Union Bank, I enjoyed the work, the environment, and the people I interacted with daily. Environment was very laid-back and friendly. Contractors were treated as part of the team. Telecommuting was allowed. Free Peets coffee.

    Cons

    Senior management seemed slow in decision making, and there seemed to be a bit of bureaucratic red tape going on. Fortunately, I was not directly impacted by any of it. Also, technology is pretty antiquated and could stand to be upgraded (i.e. still using old overlay technology for customer letters, still on Windows XP, etc.).
