Has potential, but upper management is sloppy and doesn't know how to recognize talent...

Senior Relationship Banker (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

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

Pros- Incredible clientele (depending on the branch you work at.)
- Overall a warm culture
- Opportunity for growth
- Competitive Base Salary
- Great Benefits
- Opportunity to get licensed as a banker

Cons- Inconsistent compensation structure (one quarter its great, the next quarter it's cut in half...)
- Poor communication between upper management and retail employees
- Upper management does not have realistic expectations many times
- Systems are a JOKE!
- Recently "laid off" more employees and the branches are understaffed all the time, so more employees are feeling overworked.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend a month working at a branch office with personal goals and see how realistic it is to accomplish what you people expect. Sales are hard to achieve when we are inundated with busy work, and are constantly doing unnecessary clerical things

Union Bank is a good place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time for more than 10 years

ProsUnion Bank cares for its employees and offers great benefits. They run annual employee surveys to get feedback and make necessary changes to areas that employees are not happy with.

ConsUnion Bank has too many levels of management. Senior managers are unaware of issues at the lower level, so issues don't always get addressed appropriately.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many levels of management where the senior managers don't really know what is going on at lower levels.

Loved my job, loved the overall bank values, but hated the specific management of my unit.

Technical Accountant (Former Employee)
San Diego, CA

I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat benefits, great overall company values, training classes

ConsManagement of specific groups was awful

Advice to Senior ManagementPay attention to how many people are going out on leave and watch the trends of groups and how many people are being let go or quitting - this is an indication there is something wrong and management must be held accountable for the bad morale and high turn-over.

Great Opportunity

Executive Administrative Assistant (Current Employee)
San Diego, CA

I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI have a boss who trusts in my abilities, even when I doubt myself. I am looked at as a go to person because if I dont have an answer, i will find out, and i am encouraged to continue learning everyday so that I can better myself within the company. Yes, the software is just barely starting to move out of the 90's, but the company is great to work for. We have great benefits, an opportunity to retire with a pension if you put in the work, and people who respect you. who could ask for more? Seriously!

ConsThe software needs to be updated into the 2000's but they are working on it.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to work on the Leadership development and encouraging the management to appreciate their direct reports. Appreciation is how you build a loyal workforce.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
