    Pros

    Training here is AMAZING you will defiantly learn banking here. Also their banking operations is great too. Most of the employees are great to work with too.

    Cons

    Not enough staff, bank is losing its small community feel and trying to be more like a bigger bank. Pay is not that great, unless you are a new hire.

    Advice to Management

    Help branches have the correct amount of staff. Bankers and Assistant Managers are spending more time being tellers then doing their job. Hire tellers to help bankers go out for business and AM's do their Operations correctly. Pay your employees right so they don't leave.

    I have been working at OneWest Bank full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay.
    Employees are very nice-I have great relationships with lots of people. Mean age I'd say is early 40's with families.
    Pretty healthy leadership culture.
    Decent Benefits.

    Cons

    Really white collar corporate culture (i'm not into that..). No real raises. Employees are usually at unease because of how fast the company gets bought out. People leave quite often. Long hours. Unpaid lunches.

    Advice to Management

    Casual culture could go a long way.

    I worked at OneWest Bank full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great work environment in my department. Driven staff with a cohesive team. Managers set the standards and everyone was held accountable.

    Cons

    Not all staff had same attitude. There were some employees who did not care and would hurt team morale. Long hours were standard.

    Advice to Management

    Not much other than to keep staff abreast of major ownership changes and assure certain workers that their jobs would be kept.
