I worked at Bank of the West full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

BoW has great benefits that are affordable.
BoW does internal training for advancement and career development

Cons

BoW is owned by BNP Paribas and must have a specific profit to BNP requirements to remain a profitable investment.
If the profits are not achieved they freeze raises and hiring to get the $ to France.
Bonus selection is a joke

    I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and incentives, great people to work with, bank is great with customers.

    Cons

    Managers will micro-manage you right down to your bathroom breaks. If you meet goals the set them to impossible standards. Very little recognition for a job well done. For every 10 things you do great they will find 50 things you do wrong or not up to their tedious standards and expectations. You are constantly being threatened with your job if you don't reach these goals and expectations.

    Advice to Management

    I challenge management to come and do our jobs for a quarter, with their expectations and goals that they have set and see if you can get it all accomplished. There isn't enough hours in the day and if you want all these tedious, ridiculous, and over exaggerated tasks done, then pay us the overtime to do it. If not, then trust that most employees are giving 100% of their best, to be the best at our jobs and reward us for that.

    Pros

    This company is backed up by a good mother company.

    Cons

    Not a good place to make a lot of money.

    Advice to Management

    Promote deserving rank and file employees rather than giving them quarterly gift certificates.
