Pros

San Ramon location is a bit of communita if you must take 680 South. However, they have great campus and caffeteria.

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

    Pros

    reasonable work life balance. Nothing else.

    Cons

    No career prospect. Don't expect your contribution to be appreciated if you are not in the inner circle or if you do not BS. Layers and layers of unnecessary management. A lot of people do not deserve to be in the management level.

    Advice to Management

    REDUCE GREATLY the number of management layer. Have 360 degree feedback. Treat the people who do the actual work with more respect and rewards. The Bank really does not need so many talking managers.

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

    Pros

    You are rewarded for your success. They provide plenty of room for growth. Great work/life balance. People recognize you when you work hard, even if sales are down, they understand that is the nature of the business, then we work on how to better ourselves.

    Cons

    I felt like my tuition reimbursement was not handled properly. It is hard to complain about a company giving you money for school. I just feel like it could have been handled better.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. I feel like some of the "little" people that out-perform others are not rewarded as much as they should be (regarding pay). The values management portrays are directly in line with the company and that is what drives our business. People love good customer services. I hope that as this bank grows we are able to still provide the "small bank feel"
