    Pros

    Great cafeteria!
    Free Coffee.
    Regular Paychecks.
    Diverse Atmosphere.

    Cons

    PMO - Serious flaws with management. Extremely high turnover which speaks on said 'flaw'. Company culture is indifferent with very short sighted policies. Some Project Managers have gained too much authority too fast, arrogant, do not treat others with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Management Training Programs.
    Demotions.
    Get rid of Project Managers whom have a history of high turnover on their subordinates.

    Pros

    Generally very nice people outside of management.

    Cons

    Working area is cramped, noisy and not conducive to productivity.
    PMO is disjointed, poorly managed, and impersonal. Understaffed in many projects.
    Senior management thinks highly of themselves, demonstrate a clear delineation between themselves and general staff, and rule under threat of termination, i.e.- having lunch while working at your station, or even having pictures of family.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some nice people at the branch level.

    Cons

    Very poorly ran company. Incentive plan changes by the month based on the "new" strategy or focus. Little to no training. Leadership is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Don't run this company on a quarterly basis just to run up stock price.

    I have been working at BankUnited full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay, fairly nice corporate campus in a good location. Good focus on modern banking practices, such as personal and electronic banking.

    Cons

    The senior executives seem to be running the bank in order to drive up the stock price so that they can sell out and cash in. Not enough short to medium term focus and investment. Not much future in the branches, as most are deemed as obsolete. Very little training offered for the employees. You are supposed to walk in as a new hire and hit the ground running. They prefer to hire people who are already trained instead of training and promoting the existing staff. The benefits are mediocre at best. They offer a employee health program, but it seems to be a cynical attempt to drive down health care costs as opposed to improving the well-being of the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Very political. Hard to get ahead unless you are plugged into one of the good old boys or unless you are buddies with the New York inner circle.
