    I have been working at Umpqua Bank full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company works hard to create a "culture" for employees via online brag blog, encouragment of appreciation, and daily motivational moments. Umpqua also offers 40 hours for community service during the work week. Since the company is rather small and local, it is easy to get in front of management and see who is running the ship.

    Cons

    Because the company is small, there is not a lot of room for advancement. Managers seemed to be hired or promoted b/c they are friends w/ someone. There is no clear advancement path or explanation as to why certain individuals get promoted or hired. There is also a lot of turn over in many departments, such as technology. There does not seem to be an understanding by upper management as to the importance of technology the process for implementing and maintaning new technology. There are a lot of contradictory technology priorities, and a lot of turn over in technology management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire an experienced and dedicated CIO, someone who will stick around for 5+ years. Allow that person to evaluate the skills and needs of all the technology managers and clean house, hire, re-organize, whatever it will take to get a stable and competent technology management team. Ensure all departments have a clear advancement path and hire from within!!
