    Pros

    Hmm, can't think of any.

    Cons

    If you want to be part of a cookie cutter company, be my guest. I am referring to the bank branches. Some offices make their goals easily, the money walks in the door with little or no effort on the part of the employees. Other offices work their tail off for every single penny and the reward is a higher goal. The correct term should be quota. Yup, sell what gets you to your quota and ignore the customers needs. Business as usual. Work, life balance, what is that???

    Advice to Management

    Get lost, you don't know what you are doing.

    I worked at OneWest Bank full-time

    Pros

    hours are great compared to other banks

    Cons

    Everything about this company is terrible! I have never worked at a more unorganized bank before. Branches were constantly running off of 3 maybe 4 people, always short staffed. Quarterly bonuses were a joke. The way this company is going, I wouldn't be surprised if it completely shut down in a couple of years.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management that actually knows what they are talking about when it comes to banking and operations. Buy new equipment, so we are not constantly depending on old and slow systems.

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about the company

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations for their employees... no support from management or back office. Turn over is insane in this company. 12 employees quit in a matter of 3 months in a single district which says a lot
