I have been working at Bank of the West full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-Clearly set expectations
-Achievable goals
-Great recognition

Cons

-Salary is a constant struggle to people where they should be
-Goals come out late in the year
-Not all branches are created equal in appearance

Advice to Management

-If goals are going to be late do not make them retroactive
- Don't have maximums on raises. If you were hired as a teller it can mean that you are a lower earning manager when you finally make it.
-Get a standardized look to the branches

    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
