    Pros

    The employees (approx 35) all have several years with the bank. Very family oriented. Small community bank that really cares about its customers and community. Many customers are known on a first name basis. The bank was started about 14 years ago. Employees inside the organization always had first priority on open positions.

    Cons

    At times, and only do to our size, our marketing efforts were limited because of the expense to advertise in metro newspapers. Some of the facilities could have used a bit of updating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to keep the culture and family like values. Keep communication lines open.

    My time at UCB has been quite a learning experience I have gained more knowledge in 2 years than I had expected.

    Pros

    I would say coming to work in a town that I am not from the customers were very quick to make me feel welcome as well as the employees. After working at the bank for 2+ years it was as if I had a another family. It was my home away from home, so to speak.

    Cons

    Not enough hands on training, & behind the scence so the workers better understand the importants of there job and how it effects others if they don't do there best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more with your employees, don't leave them in the dark. Make them feel important & needed. It makes them want to work harder for you just by acknowledging their hard work.

    Pros

    Great people to work for. They are very caring about your work/life balance. Id recommend it as a place to work for anyone who is interested

    Cons

    With it being a smaller bank, some of the people who work there are not as trained as others in the banking industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're making the right moves in order to keep the bank competetive in the future
