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

Pros

Bank of the west is a great company to work for if you are looking for flexibility. As an Underwriter you were allowed to set your own work hours (within reason) which is great for managing work and your personal life.

Cons

The current structure of management doesn't allow for open communication regarding changes in the Credit Department.

Advice to Management

Doesn't seem to take advice or listen to suggestions from employees about improving processes.

    I worked at Bank of the West full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Set schedule otherwise but besides that no pros.

    Cons

    Not that great benefits, little pay and training, honestly was not even worth a two weeks notice. Stressful. None of the team leads were any help and managers useless.

    Advice to Management

    Up your pay, and do a better job at training. Can you say high turnover rate.

    Pros

    I worked as a contract employee at Bank of the West. It is a challenging environment, and I learned a lot.

    The management lacked direction and it made for a chaotic environment. My manager didn't make me feel like part of the team, and I always wondered which day would be my last.
