    Pros

    Co-workers are wonderful, most clients are understanding and nice. A lot of volunteer opportunities and company events you can participate in. Direct management is supportive for the most part in wanting to help guide you to advance your career.

    Cons

    Union Bank has been going through a lot of changes in operations and with the constant change in procedures, it's becomes difficult to remember or know what has changed. It feels almost as if something's changing at least every couple of weeks. With the amount of work and cuts in staffing and transactions remaining high, it is sometimes difficult to balance it all while getting paid so little.

    Pros

    No overtime. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Senior management shielding incompetent older employees that are just waiting for retirement.

    It's about who you know and not what you can do.

    No more pension plan.

    Pros

    For a west coast company there are many opportunities to grow without having to move to the east coast.

    Cons

    The leadership in the retail bank (community banking) has got to be the worst I've ever seen. There is very much a top down approach with the senior leaders (Feldman, Habbis, etc) micromanaging people. Plus they are good friends outside of work so they can't be objective and don't hold each other accountable. There are numerous leaders that aren't empowered nor are respected for their knowledge. Feldman routinely blames others instead of taking responsibility for his failed leadership. Case in point, he points out blame for the customer experience being poor yet for a year he and his team have been rolling out standards but they aren't adhered to. It's not good because of their leadership and shouldn't be blamed on the employees in the branch. Lastly, Feldman takes credit for other people's work when something goes well and blames others when things don't go well.

    Advice to Management

    Need to look at a morale in the community bank. People are constantly replaced or penalized yet the leadership at the top needs to change.

    Pros

    I worked in the Merchant Bank and had the opportunity to participate in making both direct and fund investments. Excellent opportunity to gain transaction experience.

    Cons

    At the time the board of directors was very risk averse and as a result our group was unable to make some attractive investments.

    Pros

    benefits, free coffee, free tea, 401 K, pansion

    Cons

    text book rat race. it is turning into a corporate boot camp where employees are expected to be available 24/7 all the time and all the future projects have to be completed yesterday. Senior management is very demanding and brought managers in from Bank of America who are now hiring their people. The systems are old and outdated with a bleak promise to change. the business is conservative and not willing to invest in the new tools. hint: After couple of years in the role you will not have anything new to put on your resume.

    Advice to Management

    invest in the new technology and invest in people training and certifications
