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

    Pros

    Good attention to customers and will do whatever it takes to keep the only customers they have left. Quite frankly the fact that everyone keeps in touch and knows each other is nice as opposed to bigger companies that don't have much contact with others outside their 4 walls. The starting pay is between 50k-55k based on experience and market, so its good compared to other banks.

    Cons

    The worst thing is the archaic systems they use to equip bankers and staff. Along with the typical office politics, this is also a business 2 business job, so ignore this bank because their branches are dead. Good luck meeting goals with no customers, unless you set time aside daily to go out and prospect businesses. Also, to book loans, the underwriters are so strict and rigid that its nearly an uphill battle on every deal you submit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers seem to talk too much among themselves and the portion called confidentiality has been kicked out of the window at this bank. Because they are small, they manage like small minded people.

    Pros

    Many people work here for 20+ years. Employees are very loyal. Compensation equal to other banks. Bank is growing world wide.

    Cons

    Many people work here for 20+ years. Sometimes it's hard to get ahead when nobody ever leaves the dept. You have to be open to, and look for opportunities outside your immediate area. Some people,especially in management, have been doing things their own way for years and are resistant to change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Bank is in flux and people are worried about job security. Be honest and help people find jobs within the Bank, if they are willing to move. The Brand is not there yet. Even on this website a search for MUFG/Union Bank, N.A. auto-corrects to Union Bank, N.A.
