I have been working at Union Bank N.A. full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Strong work ethic, green attitude, good employee programs and benefits.

Cons

Lack of clear corporate direction, IT is viewed as a cost center- not a business enabler, senior management communication/team work is nonexistent with in IT Operations

Advice to Management

Pick a clear direction and strategy, communicate it to all employees and if required just say no to business units that don't follow the corporate direction. The one offs, unprofitable services provided, nice to haves and bleeding edge toys are not providing any real value to the corporation. If it doesn't make $ why do it.

    I worked at Union Bank N.A. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The 700 let go were treated appropriately in severance agreements according to position, tenure and contribution. Everything was handled professionally by Senior Management, in other words, the terminations were not relegated to HR

    Cons

    Many of us who were long-timers planned on staying through retirement and thought we could. Some ended up having to take early retirement and start pensions in order to make it and a number of us, in our 50's, are now struggling to find work and many of us cannot: function and age group. Sad.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out some of us to come back as contractors... there are so many positions you are posting that used to be ours and that we could fill, and we would be able to hit the ground running. Some of us need the work
