    Great Environment

    Software Engineer (Former Employee) San Diego, CA

    ProsDuring 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.

    ConsSenior 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.).

    Overall good place to work, but stressful at times.

    Branch Service Specialist (Former Employee) Oceanside, CA

    ProsAs a teller, the Bank offered great benefits and incentives for working part time. Offered various training classes, both online and off site. Great location and customers were very friendly for the most part.

    ConsIn my first few years with the Bank, I unfortunately had to deal with some negative co workers in which upper management didn't really handle the situations in a swift and professional manner.

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

    Senior Relationship Banker (Current Employee) San Diego, CA

    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

    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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
